Boy, I'll say! Sounds like you've got your hands full. It's always neat to meet someone who has made such great lifestyles for themselves. Catfish, now that's interesting! It'll be nice having you around, Sir. Have a great time.

Nuttin' like fried catfish Bud. Where's Macon, MS? Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull used to farm salmon, he still may, not sure, but saw on tv yrs ago, it was pretty cool. I like salmon a lot, but I never get tired of fried catfish!!

Macon is just north of Shuqualak.   

You need to join the Mississippi Bee Association.  The President is Harry Fulton of MSU.  Monthly articles.

Hey Bud!
 Yep, life is good!
I used to do fishin' all the time...Now its bees and fishin'!
 Then dogs, and logs and racing pigeons and tropical fish and fishin' lures and mowing and growin' plants...Oh, yeh,....a few beers and makin' a little mead too! I found out pretty quick that bee keeping is an addiction..Kinda like fishin' and tattoos.....you want to get more!
Anyways, have fun with the bees and when you get stung, take pictures!! It makes your friends laff!!
your friend,

Bud1.  Right, welcome to this forum, you're gonna love it here, lots of great quality time.  You sure have had a diversified life. 

What do you do with all those catfish?  Curiosity never got this cat.  Have a wonderful and beautiful day in our great world.  Cindi
