We'll all miss Bruce(Redbee) ,Bud. Just so glad I had the chance to have conversations with him even though he and I never  had the opportunity to meet face to face.  RIP Bruce!

oh man.  glad i got to meet him.  what happened?   :'(
.....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.....

Sorry to hear that, bud. I know he was a close friend. The only pic I got of him was this one. He is sitting at the porch post.

Aww Bud.  So sorry to hear that.  He was a sweet sweet man.  The beekeeping world is poorer today.

Warm thoughts and wishes for peace and good memories to you and to his family.

love,
