My hubby Charles wanted a modern hobby

My hubby Charles used to collect comic books… It was his passion plus his hobby for the longest time, however then I had teenagers, however he ended up selling most of his comic book collection when both of us had our first several teenagers plus then he decided that he wanted to switch over to another hobby completely.

He decided that he wanted to try out beekeeping, of all things, but this was the first I had ever even heard of him being the least bit interested in beekeeping or bees of any sort.

I was pretty surprised when he mentioned it to me, plus then I was even more surprised when I started seeing all of this beekeeping device showing up at our house, then first it was the suit plus the hat with the little net thing over it, then it was a bunch of bizarre wood boxes, plus then it was the bees themselves. I had a little bit of a difficult time dealing with the fact that both of us were getting live honey bees delivered to us in the mail. In our opinion, that’s just weird, however but Charles enjoyed every bit of it, and even now, when he’s been doing it for several years, he still thinks that it’s the greatest thing ever. Now he says that he can’t believe that he ever wasted his time or energy on comic books when he could have been stressed doing beekeeping as a hobby for his entire life. At least he has found something that he loves. Even though I am still not a fan of bees in general, at least now both of us always get free honey!
