    Entertaining book about one man s foibles when attempting to take care of bees There s not really anything for an aspiring beekeeper to learn other than, Expect Things To Go Horribly Wrong Sometimes but it does make one such as I a little less anxious about the attempt My own bees will arrive in less than a month, and I will don my beekeeper suit for the first time and attempt to dump them into their brand new homes I hope I will not kill the queen I hope they like me and live without di Entertaining book about one man s foibles when attempting to take care of bees There s not really anything for an aspiring beekeeper to learn other than, Expect Things To Go Horribly Wrong Sometimes but it does make one such as I a little less anxious about the attempt My own bees will arrive in less than a month, and I will don my beekeeper suit for the first time and attempt to dump them into their brand new homes I hope I will not kill the queen I hope they like me and live without disease And that, I gather, is just about the most a beekeeper can hope for
