Twas two nights before Christmas
and all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring..............
Except Don who was tossing and turning, checking every few hours to see if the extractor was still on time!
One year I want to need an extractor. I suspect I'll have to move to the midwest to get there. And personally I am getting very irritated with Texas.
The older I get, the better I get at doing the right thing, letting it go, and lounging in my computer chair going, gee, I should do some work! Bees are plumb easy when you have been through as much as I have.

that is too funny gypsi!
"as my momma use to say 'even a duck is smart enough to fly south come winter time'."
tec, you don't know what you and the ducks are missing up here ....you can leave your snowblower (and shovels) parked on the roof, especially if you live in northern michigan or where perry does.......
Selected two pics, both taken in February, different years.--The first, on a winter visit to my parents OBM in Chicago (-15 F). I had to shovel the sidewalk in front of their home about 6 times that day.
The second, on a "winter" tour with my wife in Israel (about 20 C=68 F)
Spare me those four distinct seasons.

a long time ago riverbee I referenced my momma's saying to an old beekeeper who had hired me to help move bees south from North Dakota late in the fall of the year. I rode with him in his truck from Texas to North Dakota and learned a lot of small details related to bee keeping along the way. As we pulled into the very small North Dakota town of New England small flakes started to fall and when they began to fall a bit thicker I informed him that their was no need for him to take me to the boarding house where we stayed but to just take me by the Greyhound bus station for certainly the snow was a sign from god that I should head back south. I of course was kidding him but did go by the local farm coop store and bought myself a pair of Carhart coveralls.
great pictures of yourself ef, and nice tractor there don! oooohhhh you guys, that snow stuff will be here too soon, makes me shiver looking at them!
"and miss the clear winter skies of Minnesota (we lived there for 8 years). It didn't matter that it was -10F, it was sunny! Minnesota winters are GLORIOUS!"
paul, what planet are you on, i think your brain was freeze dried when you lived in Minnesota, it ain't glorious.....two seasons......SWAT AND SHOVEL
tec having been to new england, north dakota myself during snow season, i think i would have headed back south to texas.....!
roads, when it snowed, well, what road, in some areas, the roads would be just a 'tunnel' to drive through and hope you didn't meet someone coming from the other direction
wise choice on the carharts!
don, let us know when you get that extractor spinning! maybe some video?!
