Bud 6 in Macon MS 4/12/14 & 4/13/14
« on: February 12, 2014, 07:48:57 AM »
It was announced in the greetings section, but Bud 6, the annual gathering of beekeepers from around the country ( and sometimes further  ;)) will be held at Buds home . You may need to plan ahead so I am making sure the notification is here in the club gathering section in addition to JPs previous announcement in the greetings forum.
Last year I had people PM me and I added them to a guest list just so they had a rough idea of how many were coming. I will start assembling the list today as well as some have already made their commitment to attend. If you would like to be added feel free to PM me and I will add you. And I know some are on an if I am able basis, so it's up to you if you would like your name added. Preregistration is not required, and as always there is not a fee for this weekend of activities.
  However I would like to point out that they spend money out of pocket to do this each year, so if you do attend, a donation to the hosts would be greatly appreciated I'm sure.

Here is directions to Buds from different points in the Southern region:

I wish I could give a solid "Hell Yeah"  but unfortunately we are still playing it by ear.  It will most likely depend on how much I get done in the garden/farmlet next week and the weather and Mikel's new job.

Can you put us down as a strong maybe?  :}

Sorry to be so wishy washy.  If we come, we will be camping and bring supplies.  We don't eat much anyways. :p.

Hope to see you all next week.

love, ziffa

I'm all done minus an oil change on Wednesday, be in Meridian at 12:15 on Thursday.

ALMOST had a catastrophe today, I found out they change my flight from Philly to Atlanta, leaving me 18 minutes to go 2 terminals away to get the plane to Buds. There is no way to get there in 18 minutes, so I called and got booked on an earlier flight out of Philly giving me about 1.5 hours layover which is fine by me.

Just FYI, if you miss that noon flight to Bud's the next one arrives in Meridian at 9pm and that's a 10 hour layover in Atlanta. Glad I corrected that!!!

See you all either again or for the first time in just DAYS!!!!

that's part of the reason we are flying into Birmingham.  didn't want to do another red eye.  it was also a lot cheaper.  would have rented a car either way, but the car out of AL was cheaper than a car from MS.  the two hour drive should be nothing  :-D

Tell Bud I was thinking about him this afternoon. I caught about a 7 or 8 lb. snapping turtle and dressed him out. Thought about Bud while doing it. Will be some nice bar-b-que one night this week.

Hard to cook when you're removing a 12' colony from a 97 yr old house, no time to sit under Ms Annette's red umbrella like Schawee did, just sayin' :)

Looks like you all had a wonderful time. I am enjoying all the photos, but with all the talk about food, I still haven't seen any photos of people eating.

JP where is a photo of Liz??

Annette:

Well.... I'm the old bald headed guy in the checkered blue shirt.

Short but funny story: Last hairs cut I got was nearly 2 months earlier, it had grown long and NO I wasn't doing a comb-over (never had hair loss issue) but I have for year cut my own hair, looks good and I like it short as the weather breaks.

So I got out the clippers, put on the 1/2 length adapter and buzzed away - only to find out I had lost a noticeable amount of hair on top my head since the last hairs cut. Two months of wool caps done me in - lol. Looks okay though and now I'm sitting on your desk top - woohoo!!

And I agree, Liz is a delight, I enjoy her company so very much.

Peace.

OH thats great John. Now I have a photo (of sorts) of you as well. Getting older, like they say, is not for sissies. We have to accept so much with all the changes happening to our bodies.

Glad you had a good time at Buds this year.

Take care
