Notice anything “off” about Jack’s photo?  Compare his ears.  Though he’s got notoriously ample earlobes to begin with, one of his ears is not like the other.


The increased size of his right earlobe is due to a honey bee sting.  She got upset and defensive that Jack was looking around the hive, eventually getting frustrated and angry enough to sting.  It did it’s job.


However, in the end, the bee loses.  Of course a sting hurts the offender but it is she that perishes from her own wrath.

Getting ready to move the girls to their new home.

So, as much as we sometimes would like to act on our passions, it is always better to be patient and forgive and forget.

That is the lesson of the honey bee.

  1. I just found your blog, with great interest, as I am working toward a homestead something like yours, and also because I am also a Hoosier, in the middle of the state. 🙂 I love all of your critters, and even with a fraction of the furry children that you have, we also show the scars from loving and caring for them.
    If you have a minute, come see me sometime @ Abbie in Wonderland! What part of Central In are you?
