My brother Johnny and sister-in-law JoAnn came in to town for a few days, so we invited Nick to come over and join us for dinner and a visit one night. We had noticed a huge bee hive in one of our azaleas that afternoon and EZ had purchased some spray to go after them with. Nick volunteered to take them on after they tried to sting him in our driveway, and promptly "suited up" and headed outside, spray can in hand. (He never ceases to entertain us!) EZ drove our car to a strategic spot to photograph the assault, as Johnny provided moral support outside. Mom, JoAnn and I were cracking up at the three of them from the safety of the house. Look closely at the first shot to see the hive close up. It measured about 12" long by 10" high and was buzzing with bees. Still aren't quite sure what they were, but we suspect hornets.
The killer in action trying to spray into the opening of the hive!
Run for your life!
The next day we snapped a few pictures before J & J headed for Charlotte to visit their daughter and family. Mom had given them a few of my Dad's favorite hats, so we had a bit of fun as they modeled them. Fond memories for sure as we pictured him wearing them while mowing the lawn or just sitting outside. As always, our time together passed all too quickly!
