Rancher gave me a memory today. about 30 yrs. ago i bought my first house and moved in next to my mom and step . there was a big tree trunk in their yard and we were sitting on the back porch drinking coffee when my step explained the bees to me. he said he had seen them going in and out of under that trunk for a long time and there was a big store of honey under it. He said he wished he were not so old that he could dig it up because honey from under ground was the best in the world. Feeling sorry for him and wanting a taste of the best honey in the world i grabbed my shovel and went to work. this went for 3 days of me sweating and hurting for that honey. I was out working and heard my mom yelling at him. she was pretty mad by the sound of it. so he comes out and tells me they must be gone and had me stop digging. It was yrs. later when they told me what the fight was about. There were no bees and never had been but i got that stump out of the ground for him. my Tom Sawyer moment.
