My wifes Grandfather introduced me to beekeeping 8 years ago.  He tended bee's for over 60 years.  Sure do miss him.  Currently I have 9 hives and plan on adding more next year.

Hi Karrow!
 Happy to have you here!
 I'm sure , with 8 years of bees and experience, We're gonna appreciate your bee input!
 I think you'll find this place a lot of fun! Everybody here is really nice and, like you, we're all bee-o-holics. It seems lately that  beekeepers are coming out of the woodwork and joining us here at the forums! Again, welcome, and have a great time!

your friend,

Karrow, welcome to our forum, this will be a place that you will love to spend time.  You have many experiences, I am sure, when you have time, tell us of some of your favourite tales.

You had a wonderful mentor, I don't doubt that for a minute.  The old folk have a way of wanting to impart the life wisdom to those that will listen.  You obviously did.  Sixty years of beekeeping is a long time, and I bet this fine man would have had tales to tell, things to show you, you were a fortunate soul.

Enjoy your visits with us, you will make new friends, we will lean on you as you may lean on us.  Have that most beautiful and wonderful day, welcome.  Cindi
