    Honey belongs in plastic bears

    So I figured I'd finish off my breakfast this morning with a couple hot cat-head biscuits with butter and honey before heading out in the cold. I couldn't find my honey bear. I bellowed for Miss Margaret. "Where's my honey bear?" She handed me this little fancy thingy with honey in it. "Your bear was getting so old I was afraid it was going to crack and make a mess of the cupboard" Well, I said I didn't like that one bit. Said I didn't like this new thing. Here's what I got back...

    "Melo (that's what she calls me) you refuse to drink coffee out of anything but a cracked old mug you had before I met you. You have a favorite spoon of all things. Even if you let me give your clothes to Goodwill, they wouldn't take them. You refuse to dry off after showering with anything but worn out army towels that feel like sandpaper and are so frayed I have to clip threads every time I wash them. You wear a pair of cowboy boots your brother told me you got in High School. You just ain't right."

    I don't care, everyone knows honey belongs in plastic bears. Maybe when I run to town this afternoon for some sling swivel studs I will go plastic bear shopping. She can have her fancy honey thingy. I can have a bear. There is room in the cupboard for both. Gotta learn to compromise.

    And Dan Post used to make one helluva pair of boots.

    Apparently. But that is likely why he is still on his first wife.

    Well, I guess we shouldn't hold that against him. He does seem to have quite a bit of experience in other areas.

    There is something very comforting in established routines and the associated accoutrements. Sometimes newer is not always better. Long live the honey bear!

    The "honey" that comes in plastic bears isn't real good--tastes like milkweed honey with too much high fructose corn syrup added to make it sweet. I agree that plastic bears are great honey dispensers, though. Buy honey in a bear and dump it out, then get some good honey to put in the bear. In fact, I'd buy a whole case just in case someone does not appreciate my bears. Maybe two cases since they have a big size for the table and a little size for backpacking.

    Everything. I smoked my first hive at age four. Orange blossom honey. Dumped it in the centrifuge to separate the comb from the honey. That's were I learned how to make fuel for nuclear bombs. Filtered out all the trash. That's where I learned about filtering various fluids. I poured all that honey into little plastic bears. That's where I learned to use a funnel to pour siphoned fluids into tanks with small openings. Then I carried them out to sell in Gramma's little roadside stand. That's when I learned the heavier the load on a specific area the worse sandspurs hurt bare feet, which is PSI related so somehow has to do with tire inflation. That's also how I learned make correct change without a cash register. Of course, this was back in the days when it was safe to leave a pudgy 4-year old, his honey-filled plastic bears, and his cigar box full of money out by the highway all by himself.

    Pooh is a disgrace. Any self-respecting bear would know what to do with a honey jar stuck over his face: have Tigger bust him in the face with a baseball bat. Gets the jar off every time.

    Well played Sir! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Truth is I love honey and have no problem finding the good stuff at countless roadside stands just like you describe. Finger lakes region of NY must have good bee's?
