On Friday the store owner told him about a friend whose dad passed away a few years ago and was a beekeeper. Carl got the guy's number and set a time to meet on Saturday.
When they came home, both "boys" were giddy over their find...

|I know it only looks like sticks but once these are put together|
they will be the frames the bees build their honeycomb on.
|Here's some of the frames put together.|
Here's a breakdown of what they bought:
9 supers that were assembled
super that weren't assembled
lots of frames
several boxes of wax coated plastic foundations
decapping fork and knife
hive tool (big sturdy hunting knife)
3 mason jar feeders
and most exciting...
|A stainless steel two frame honey extractor.|
Moral of the story...Asking around really pays off. Sharing at...
