I looked at the maps. I would need to allocate the same amount of time as it took to go to Buds. Its never out of the question though.  It would be a chance to catch up with Dallas and Hardwood too.

Jim,

Can you pass the info onto Kent,  I know he was interested and I promised to get him the info.

     Great to know the meet went well Jim. Good job.  Nice to see that Iddee, Scott and Peggy made it but missing the shirtless Bud in the pics. The hair style still going well Scott, even taking off on the chin ! !
   Pleased you all had a good weekend again. By the way, did Iddee turn up with his yellow plastic bucket ? ?

That was Bud's bucket, Geoff. He mounted it on a board and hung it over his fireplace after I demonstrated it.    :cool: :cheesy: :cheesy:

All good Wally, hope he took it to Empire with him. Still check the video every now and then.

   For those who dont know of the yellow bucket saga here it is, great memories of Bud3.

Awww.  Looks like you guys had a great time.  Sorry I missed it.  Good to see Peggy and Scott.  Have not heard from them in a long time!!

They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Awsome, Now all we got to do is make a recording of Wally beating that plastic bucket and we won't need the bucket anymore (and Wally's arm won't get tired).

Yup, he was there. I think he made every Bud get together.

I just had Brian?s ?Acebird?s Naturally Creamed Honey? on an English Muffin. I didn?t know it during Beefest but he left it here with my wife.
It is very good. Thanks.

I brought another jar of honey that wasn't creamed but has a hint of fermentation.  I eat this regularly.  However, I left the jar in Myrtle Beach at my brothers house.  I don't know if I will have any left by next year for a taste test.  Maybe everyone could bring a sample of their honey to Beefest 2018 and pass it around.
We have given our employer notice that we are moving to FL by Nov. this year.  That means I have to get rid of my bees so I am unsure if I will have a new crop of honey to bring to FL.
Another dilemma is how to get 20 gals of mead down to FL.  Anyone know what the law is for transporting mead?

Back of the truck.  Lable "Honey product".  Don't say any more about it.   :wink:
