Oh, I forgot to show you
« on: January 25, 2009, 08:25:32 PM »
Last year I bought a small extractor from a bee pal.  He wasn't into keeping bees any more and after I got the monster, monster extractor from another bee pal, this bee pal was happy to sell me this one that I can actually lift up, is stainless steel and good for my size.  My fabulous Husband built me a stand for this little extractor, and he makes me proud of these things he does for me.  My little teeny, tiny extractor.  It holds four frames, and needs to be turned after each side, but hey, that is good arm exercise and good for my body and soul.  Have a wonderful and great day, attract and keep fabulous health.  Cindi









My youngest Grandson is a master at fitting into small place, you find somewhere where he can squeeze in, he will go there



This is the extractor that I also got from a bee pal.  I am still not too sure what to do with it, it is galvanized and I am not sure if I want to do all the work with sandblasting and painting it with food grade paint, that seems like an awful lot of work, so it just sits there and will come along with us for the ride when we up and move from this place.

I have a two frame extractor that someone sold me for 50.00. It is hard work turning that handle. Boy Cindy you must be stronger than me. Complain, complain.

Bjornbees, you made made me laugh.  I had to re-look at the pictures to see what you meant by the longest legs.  Didn't notice it at first, but, that reflection in the extractor was my Husband, not me, I don't like the colour red, that is the only reason that I know it was him, he likes red, hee, hee.  And yes, he actually does have really long legs, not quite as long as the reflection depicts, but long.  JP, he only works building the stuff for my bees, not the bees themselves, the like to sting him when he is around, smiling, maybe he should shower a little more, hee, hee.  Have a wonderful and most awesome day, life, attract that great health.  Cindi

I love the shiny one!  That stand is very nice too, you are very lucky that your hubby will build things to make it easier for you.  Isn't it amazing where those kids can crawl into!  He is a cutie pie!  Looks like the sun is coming out today, had snow yesterday...eekkk :-x.  J

Jody, oh yes, a lucky woman, that I am.  No snow here, still freakin' cold and clear, don't think the snow is ever going to melt.  Have a great and most awesome day, Cindi
