Slicko does it again
« on: March 14, 2010, 10:50:43 PM »


From the pages of Slicko's Swarmin' Headlines

Slicko reports that he has just hived another swarm that landed in his Silky Oak tree. The Silky Oak tree is beside the Macadamia Nut tree which is beside the Mandarine tree. :-D

He said that the girls must have been disoriented to land in the Silky Oak when the Mandarine tree was vacant :shock:

He is reported to have said "Bugger" when his wife said that she thought she could see a swarm in the tree.


Slicko
On the outer Barcoo where the churches are few,
   And men of religion are scanty,
On a road never cross'd 'cept by folk that are lost,
   One Michael Magee had a shanty.

Now this Mike was the dad of a ten-year-old lad,
   Plump, healthy, and stoutly conditioned;
He was strong as the best, but poor Mike had no rest
   For the youngster had never been christened,

And Lone wonders where she could get queens at this time of year.  :roll:

Obviously your girls are fantastic at raising queens. You may as well just go into queen selling.
