Sting of a bee

Yesterday evening hubby gets the idea of adding another hive body onto the hive to give them more room. Now I can stand out there helping him wearing a tank top, shorts and flip flops plus no hat. Hubby, well, he has toned down a bit, he will put the hat and a white top on. Before it was the whole outfit! For some reason I did not think they would be too happy doing this when they were coming home from working so hard, and I was right. One stung me on the arm and hubby was stung 3-4 times including one on the neck. Now it has been at least 4 years since I was stung and only because I put his cap on!!! Of course did I mention I also hold the smoker?!!!! This morning hubby looked like he had a fat neck and I had an extra "Popeye" muscle!!!!
Here's a previous picture of him holding one of the bee frames. I'll have to take a picture of the huge hive later before we rob it for spring honey.

I've thought about trying to have a hive but haven't ventured into it yet. I have a feeling it must be a lot of work-for the bees too, of course.
