    Karen I called for the appointment. They are suppose to call me back but it has been 2 days. I am going to call again tomorrow. I know last time I had to wait a month. I hope I can get in quicker. It seems like Dr.'s are hard to get appointments with now.

    It has been really cold here. In OK it doesn't get too cold. He has been in contact with a beekeeper and watching things on UTube so I'm sure he will do fine. He is my Renaissance Man! LOL

    Yes in our 100 year old home the bees have made a home in the side of our house. I had to laugh when DH drilled a hole in the wall and they came flying out. The little devils are supposed to be dormant! He needs to get the bee suit and smoker I bought him. I won't be anywhere close. They stung me last year.

    He doesn't want to kill them if he can help it. We are also hoping for some honey!
