Charlie tries out a new bike, gets an assist on a removal from his very own queen bee, Charlie's wife, Kaye -- who has an eye for finding queen bees. Charlie attempts a hive removal at possibly the largest fireplace ever made. This hive is hidden under a good chunk of fireplace, covered in thick, tough rock. But that's okay, Charlie is here to save the day!
