My favorite uncle...
« on: November 16, 2010, 11:41:05 AM »
My uncle, who has been a beekeeper for several years, called me the other day. He told me to come and get his equipment because he was planning on spending more of his retired time in either Florida or Alaska fishing and not here beekeeping. He cut me one heckuva 'family deal' on two truckloads of stuff. I came home with 56 hive bodies w/drawn foundation (deeps,meds and shallows) a 20 frame maxant, 220lb kelley bottling tank, countless bottom boards,inner covers and telescoping covers,frame feeders and hive top feeders. Plus countless other odds and ends. He said he didn't want to just give it to me so he charged me $500 and a bucket of honey . Hows that for a sweet deal? Now, if I just had the bees to go in them

I'd say that was a sweet deal!

Scott
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Does he want to adopt another nephew. :lol:

As is par for the course the only sweet deals for me are watching someone else get lucky. :(

heck of a deal!  congrats.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Not bad...... I need an Uncle like that.   Were there any bees in the deal or will you be buying a lot of packages to fill those boxes this spring?

Nope, no bees. Looks like there will be quite a few packages purchased.
