The Birds and the Bees - A Comedy by Mark Crawford

Gail, a beekeeper, is attempting to keep the farmer next door at bay over his use of insecticides and his endless quest for the perfect woman. That’s when Gail’s recently separated, almost 40, turkey farmer daughter, moves back home. The daughter is in a desperate state about the running down of her biological clock.  Meanwhile a young, handsome researcher has been given the run of the place to prepare his thesis on Gail’s bees.  As the weeks go by, endless comic misadventures lead them all to learn one of life’s biggest lessons: It’s always important to take good care of your honey!
