I had an interesting experience last Saturday. I was on the driving range getting ready to play a round of golf with my father-in-law. I saw a cloud type thing emerge in the distance, sort of like the smoke monster in Lost… It moved towards me and the other people hitting balls on the range. As it go closer, it became clear that it was a swarm of bees! I’m not a huge fan of killer bees, so along with the other people on the range, I backed up under the canopy (like that would have protected me!).
Eventually, the bees calmed down a bit. They seemed to be leaving, but when I looked closer, they weren’t leaving at all, they just found a place to congregate and make a new home… right on my golf bag!!! That’s right, there were literally a few thousand bees that made their home on my golf bag!
To make a long story short, the golf course had to call an exterminator to come. They put a bag over my golf bag and took the bag and the bees to a hive near the Wold Animal Park. I got my golf bag back at the end of my round. The people in the pro shop told me, “It has a little bit of wax and honeycomb on it.”
