2013 Ford Focus ST: Bees Like It

May 6, 2013

2013 Ford Focus ST

A weekend in our 2013 Ford Focus ST reminded me of being a kid again. For a portion of my childhood there was a yellow Ford Pinto in our driveway.

In the spring and summer, when the honey bees were busy doing their thing, they would inevitably swarm the Pinto thinking they scored the mother lode. It was a fun thing for an ignorant kid to watch. Fun, until we learned a family member was allergic to their sting.

Now I can't help but scan the paint of brightly colored cars before I climb in. The other day, my casual scan found this guy. Exciting, right?
