Beekeepers are paid by the farmers and the growers to pollinate their crops. Just as the spring flowers emerge, they start with pollinating whatever produce is in season in the south and then they move north.

I also sang at funerals, dances, just about anyplace that wanted me. I still do, occasionally-but not too many of the young girls ask a seventy-five-year-old guy to sing at their wedding anymore.
