Hi folks,

It’s your favorite beekeeper again. Today was a beautiful day for honey extraction. I’ve been pulling surplus honey off of the hives for about five weeks now, and it was finally time to download the golden stuff into bottles. My friend Marty Schwartz came by and Marty, my mom and I had a honey party. I’ve never seen so much honey, this was the biggest load ever. About 450 pounds of the sticky stuff. It took nearly two days but there was much laughing. When you hang with Marty, that happens.

I just don’t know what to do with all of it. Actually, Pia & I have found it very useful when we have sex. We put it on the door knob so the kids can’t come in, ooops!
