Retired, but plenty busy. I keep hearing and reading that I may be a full time "terriost". I am a life NRA member, go to church, fear God, and love America, and I'm also a vet.
I shoot, reload, am a Ham radio operator, do a little farming, and now, I am in love with my bees. My brother gave me 10 hives, and I'm learning fast, have also learned I have a lot of learning to do.
I retired as a supervisior for a big power complex at a huge paper mill. We took care of the boilers, all steam systems, air systems, water systems, and power generation on site.
I am truly loving my bees, hard to stay away from them at times. I am constantly studying, and doing my best to learn all I can. We just formed a bee club here, had our first meeting, and I'm excited about this.
Caught my first swarms, never got stung, was totally unprepared, no protection at all, but I asked the Good Lord to help this pore ole dumb country boy and, as usual, He answers sincere prayers, and He knew good and well I was gonna need all the help I could get. Needless to say, that's all the help I needed.
I have so much to learn, usually learn the hard way, but I have bought my equipment that I need so far.
Well, done wrote a book.
