BUZZ

When we visited our son in St.Thomas last week  a million bees or so it seemed, appeared at noonish. They kept us in one day for more than an hour. Cowards we are!

We were told that they were swarming because of the full moon.  Never saw anything like it before except on TV. Thank goodness he had a window in his kitchen that showed us this amazing, but scary sight, just a few feet from the front door.

Knew instantly where the phrase, "Mind your own beeswax," came from. Definitely need to google bees and a full moon to learn more. I thought only us human "beeins" reacted to that monthly happening hysterically. We had no problems that I know of with the moon, but many with the bees.

This adds a whole new meaning to the phrase, "What's buzzing cousin?" and leads one to think we should all travel with the antidote to a bee sting or two.

Buzz (I mean Bye) for Now,

Bill
