 Good Grief! It's been a looong time since I had a 2 year old boy in the house. We were outside in the yard and I stepped into the house for a nano second. Grandson turned the hose on high and hosed the beehives! he kept hollering 'UH OH! OH OH! UH OH!' I high tailed it outside and the hives were drenched. The bees were wandering around in front of their homes confused. They were not aggressive at all, just checking the front of their houses. I just know all four hives were chattering "What The H E double Hockey Sticks Was That All About?"

Phew that was close...

Looking at it from the positive side (It's hard), keeping after the two year-olds helps keep us young.  ;D

I'll probably be off-line for the next three days---tomorrow my wife and I are going to take care of four grandchildren (aged 4-14) ---that is  if I can recover fast enough to return to forum activity after the vacationing parents return home and we finish the job.  :o
