Well, if bee-mate Mary Nielsen has moved on, and to Florida at that, it's very difficult for her to come to a bee when it's hosted in Maryland. Not to fear, though, guess who showed up to bee yesterday? Why her husband, Steve, that's who! What a nice surprise for sure, and I'm thankful he stopped in to say "hello" and hang out for a spell with his wife's bee (she is still part of our hive!). But not only did Steve "spin some yarns", he came bearing gifts of quilts (for Quilt Bingo/Community Quilts) that Mary knew would fit into his suitcase (he flew to Maryland on a business trip/Caps game(s)). I hope Mary is not too jealous!
BSoleille! The bright side of our "hive" welcoming the "drones, as well as the "worker bees" -us!
