How many does it take?
We returned to Manjack and our settled life, but the quiet routine was interrupted when a swarm of bees mounded up on the branch of a tall Poisonwood tree near the garden. The bee rescue team quickly went to work. Vinnie stood on the top of the back hoe bucket with a chain saw to top the tree which blocked access to the bees. Bill sat in the back hoe cab and ran the bucket, but stuck on the other side of the trees and underbrush with the loud howl of the motor, he worked blind and deaf. David, stood between Vinnie and Bill to signal complicated bucket maneuvers. It all worked and an official photographer documented the event.
