We hosted the bee club picnic today. The preparation for the picnic brought a lot of stress into Linda's life, some of which she transferred to me in the form of a lengthy "honey do" list. However, after all was said and done I have to admit that Linda and Rachel did a lot more of the work than I did. I kept telling her that we were hosting the bee club, not the garden club. The place ended up looking very nice although we never quite got to everything on Linda's list. Last year the picnic was held at Flowing Lake Park and only about 15 people came. Rachel suggested that we could jazz up the picnic and improve attendance by having a bee beard contest. That seemed somewhat inappropriate to do at a county park so the next thing I knew the picnic was set to be held at our house.
