Wanted to post that picture I promised to take
at the farm last Friday. If you recall, I chaperoned
Sophia and a couple of classmates on a trip to the farm.
Our guide was a funny gal. She kept referencing the
roles male and female farm animals have and what
makes each one different. For example, when discussing
the bees they keep there …
We learned that the male bees are used for one thing
and one thing only – to make babies. After that, they die.
My personal commentary on the matter is if you ever
experienced trying to make a baby with your wife -
you understand how it feels like to be a tool – good for one
She went on to say how the women do everything around
the bee-hive and the other fathers on the trip got a real kick out
of that one.
And if you get stung by a bee, it is going to be a female.
Male bees dont have stingers. Ouch.
This brought more laughs from the Dads.
She shared factoids similar to other male – female animals there.
Its a little known fact that without bees
nothing grows. They are used to pollenate
the plant life on the farm, such the Christmas
trees they grow and the flowers on the thousand of pumpkins
planted each year. Hence the reason
why they have over 100,000 bees on the farm.
I would have paid Ms. Cat – seen in back of photo -
for a big bottle of home grown
honey but they only sell it in the fall. Missed opportunity
for Ms. Cat and the rest of the crew there.
Anyway, fun times were had by all.
