No, we live within one mile of The town of Taylor. Taylor does not have a post office. Our mail comes from Sanderson which is about 15 miles away.

Love the sound of it Jim, as I love the feel of small-town rural areas!! Based of the pictures and description of the of the last Beefeast, this promises to be a hit for all attendees!

PS and just for fun! Normally when preparing a response, I just hit send when finished typing and that practice has gotten me into trouble more than once! 😂
I edited this one and while looking back I'm glad I did! Instead of Beefest, the autocorrect had changed Beefest to Beerfest!!! lol  I don't think You, Judy, Your Family, and local friends, are going to all this VERY HARD WORK and preparation for that!! lol

I don't know if I will make it but my words cannot express how commendable it is in my opinion, of you to put on this event each year!!!!..  THANK YOU, AND ALL THOSE INVOLVED, WHO PUT SO MUCH TIME, THOUGHT, EFFORT, AND EXPENSE into making this project such a success each year!!!

Sincerely,

Phillip

Sorry I can't make it this year Jim, but I am hoping for next.  I would also like to see Phil and Kathy at one.  I know travel is expensive and one royal PITA.

Thanks Brian, I would like to meet you all in person. Judging from reports and pictures of past events, no doubt Beefeast will bee 🐝 a good time filled with good fellowship for all!
We are tied up, in the middle of a home revamping project. I will have to miss this event this year.

Here is the schedule for this year?s event.
The schedule may have to change depending upon the weather. If it is too cold in the morning to bee in the hives we will have to switch things around and do the hives in the afternoon.

Hey Jim, I know I'm late getting back to you.  I'm going to try to come out Saturday.  Unfortunately, I'm really under the gun at work with a 7.3 million dollar project and I don't have the luxury of taking tomorrow off.
