Hello from Beerookie in So Illinois
« on: March 12, 2009, 12:43:33 AM »
Hello everyone,

 Sherman here from Red Bud Ill. About 45 miles SE of St. Louis, MO.
I've had my bees for 12 mos. & 9 days now. We're still getting acqainted. My new father-in-law
of 18 mos. gave me his established hive. I mentioned that I'd like to get some bees and started researching. Much to my suprise, 4 mos. later, he gave me his! How cool is that!!!!

 I browsed your forum last night for 2 Hrs. and realized this is the place to be for info. Hope your all
patient, cause I'm full of questions.

He does like you doesn't he?  I haven't figured out if he is saying thank you for taking his daughter off his hands, or punishing you... :roll:

Sherman, welcome to our forum, so nice that you have found us, and we have found you, smiling.  That is so wonderful that your Father-in-Law gave you that colony.  This is a great place where you will love to spend time, you can ask as many questions as your heart desires.  Never fear that a question will ever be unimportant, all questions are learning tools for all of us.  We were all beginners at one point in time, stick around.  We have a place here too where you can tell your tales, stories and experiences.  Have that wonderful and beautiful day, health, love our life.  Cindi
