Got Virgins?
« on: June 17, 2020, 11:47:21 pm »
Hi Folks,

True story. I don't know if it's for the Humor or General. Is it even funny?

My wife and I were making supper a few nights ago. She noticed my phone flashing.

She said: You have a message on your phone.

I said: Put it on speaker and play it.

My pal's voice says: SAL! I got lucky today and brought home four virgins. I don't have enough equipment. Can you take one off my hands?

My wife rolls her eyes and says: I suppose you have to go visit a sick friend tonight?

That virgin is currently comfortably nested in a nuc in the back yard.

Hi Folks,

Just an update on that virgin I took off a friend's delicate hands and slender fingers.

I put her queen cage in a 5 frame deep nuc, with a frame of nectar and pollen, one frame of brood (both with nurse bees), two old comb frames and a new frame. I set it in part shade, along the edge of my yard.

She was VERY young, she needed contact, so on the following day I released her. She was fine.

I watched the coming and going. Slow, nothing of note.

I checked yesterday. She wasn't there. the uncapped brood suffered and died off (not enough nurse bees). I figured she didn't make it.

Well, today I checked again. THERE SHE WAS! WOW! She flew off looking like a slim, little, pale Paris Hilton. She came back tanned, big and tired, looking more like Kim Kardasian. Six axe handles across the beam. A totally different young lady.

She looked up at me with a little Mona Lisa smile. She knew I knew what she had been doing. I smiled back. I got her another frame of brood and covered her up for the evening. I'll give her a baggie of syrup tomorrow. She deserves a good refreshing rest before settling in.
