Christmas wish list
« on: December 16, 2018, 08:45:05 am »
OK beekeepers!  What is on your beekeeping (or non-beekeeping) Christmas wish list?
I wish for more drawn comb on all those empty frames I have.  I don't think Santa can help me there!  :laugh:

My wish is for my wife to slow down on my cash stash. It's dwindling fast, with 2 more great grands this year.

My wishes are simple but huge. My daughter's health problems are ongoing. She is in the hospital now. I wish and pray she gets some rest and normalcy in the next year. Kid deserves a break.

Other than that, I don't want for a thing.

I fear I may have cast a pall over this thread and that's not right. Let me try to make amends.

I already know what I'm gettting for Christmas--a brand new router! :eusa_dance: :eusa_dance:

I enjoy woodworking and not having one has always limited me. I couldn't be more tickled. :) :)

No need for apologies, Neil.  All parents wish good health and happiness for their children. The router is cool too.

A new smoker, the piece that goes from the bellows to the smoker fell off.  We tried to jerry rig it but just couldn’t get it to stay lit.  Tough working bees without a smoker.

Share that which you have an abundance of.  In doing so both the giver and receiver are enriched.

Santa brought me a sink and countertop for my shack along with a candle mold, warm wool socks and a box of my favorite chocolates.  Many other goodies as well.  But then, I've been VERY good this year 8).  Happy New year Everyone!  Ted

ME??  Now there you go degrading those beautiful draperies. I would never insult such elite window dressings as that by calling them lowly curtains.   :o   :laugh:
