UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE: THE SWARM OF BEES WAS NOT A BEEHIVE AT ALL, BUT A SWARM OF BEES RESTING!!!! I WAS OFF YESTERDAY, BUT I WAS TOLD BY OUR PAROCHIAL VICAR, FR. JUSTIN THAT SOMEONE TOLD HIM AFTER SUNDAY'S 5:00 PM MASS THAT THE QUEEN BEE (THESE WERE HONEY BEES) DECIDES WHERE TO REST AND THEY ALL SWARMED AROUND HER. THEY DEPARTED YESTERDAY! THIS MASS OF BEES WAS PRECISELY THAT A MASS OF BEES, NO BEEHIVE WHATSOEVER. NATURE! YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE IT, EXCEPT WHEN IT COMES TO RATS WHO TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN YOUR HOME. MORE ON THAT LATER.
This beehive is about three basketballs big, swarming with bees and we didn't see it until this afternoon! Tiger, lions and bears, forget it! Rats, bees and maybe locusts! That's our pestilence! Exorcisms to the rescue!
