Sacha Matheos, December 22, 2012. When she was a kid, she liked bees. "I thought they were my friends," she says. When she got stung the first time she remembers thinking "he must be a new bee. He doesn't know me." A couple of years ago her mother signed her up for beekeeping classes and she started learning how to care for bees in her backyard. She also keeps chickens and a rabbit. It all started with a small garden in the backyard and just keeps growing. JOHN CLANTON/Tulsa World
