Bud said you better not be lifting anything heavy or he's gonna kick your butt!  ;)

Glad you had the chance to play with some bees. The withdrawals must have been something pitiful!

That was fun Schawee for sure. See the bees never forgot about you. They waited until you were sitting there and then swarmed.

.....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.....

Rest assured he's been staying away from the huge milk shakes he's accustomed to downing (daily). Dr. said he can't lift anything more than five lbs!  :-D

I don't know how i missed this thread but I'm glad to see you were out with your bees. Figure the odds of seeing a swarm at this time of year in your yard. Hope everything turns out OK.
