bees don’t ride bikes

I heard the other day that the bee keepers said that they’d lost 45% of the bees in their hives.

I don’t think that they meant that they didn’t know where they were.

I think that they meant that they’d died.

That’s a BAD THING.

Bees sting me sometimes….but we better have some bees in the world for things to keep going well.

It’s bad business for these bees to disappear.

If the bees all go….we’re SCREWED!!!

How’s that for a fun way to wake up? Thinking about bees and Armageddon?

I was going to write about bees and bees disappearing and all the little things that make the world go round and how the world is changing and how we better DO SOMETHING ….quick…..and then….the moth must have flown in front of the flame or something….because I found this REALLY GROOVY YouTube movie about a cross-country bike trip from back in the day when HUFFY AND JC PENNEY WERE POWERHOUSES IN THE WORLD OF CYCLING….and….I got distracted again.

Now, that’s when men were men and ladies were ladies….back in the days of tube socks and white shorts.

They didn’t need helmets because they had DISC BRAKES.

That’s cool.

Bees can die…and we’d never notice….but put on a pair of red, white and blue tube socks and people sit up and pay attention.

Give me a snappy tune and a bicycle and the world can go to Hell in a handbasket and I probably wouldn’t even notice.

Until I got stung by the last bee standing.

Until I got stung for the last time….and I looked around and finally noticed that nothing was growing anymore.

I better enjoy my honey while I can.
