« on: March 06, 2009, 09:17:20 PM »

local law enforcement called with contact info for the client.   
called her and got the address.  hot footed it into town and had a 5 lb swarm waiting!
quick fifty bucks for 20 minutes plus very nice bees!

most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

The only problem with that is the corner is still a ways down the road.  ;)
