Flash 55 Friday - Bee Keeping

John and Tony couldn't believe their luck.
Both had enjoyed the hobby of beekeeping for several years now.
With one goal in mind, they carefully planned their trip to the Buffalo Valley Beekeepers Association convention.
Each wanted to come home with a new queen for the hive.
Surprisingly, the queens came with a new hive.

Friday Flash 55 is a fifty-five word story posted every Friday. To join in the fun, create and write any story you like in 55 words; no more, no less. Using this link, tell Mr. Knowitall a.k.a. the G-Man, by leaving a comment on his own Flash 55 post.

You gotta love a portable hive! There was an urban legend about beehive hairdos when i was in school... No, I won't go there. Too close to bedtime.

That's what my mother wore all her life, fab in the 60's not so cool in the 90's and you are 60. My 55 is here

Wow. Funnyand clever. Those hairdos look... well, they look kinda strange, don't they? ;) The people in the photo look so happy, though. What a cute and funny 55. Well done! /Jo.

Alice Audrey said...

LOL! I remember those hair dos. It was such a relief to see the last of them before I was old enough to even think about doing it myself.

Felicitas said...

LOL! That photo was worth at least 1000 words! But the 55 you used... HILARIOUS!

KB said...

Too funny. Love the pic!

hope said...

Oh man did that bring back memories! :) My Mom and her friends use to look like their hair had something else living in there.

Thanks for making me smile.

Whitesnake said...

Bet ya got a buzz outta writing this......seems like a HUM dinger ta me......

Charlie said...

It looks like I'm late to the party, but that doesn't make this week's 55 any less funny.

I went to high school with two girls—twins—who are the spitting image of the ones in your photo.

I hope the bees weren't Africanized; boy, what a headache after being stung 49-thousand times.
