Happy Holidays 2017!!!

by Jorge

Ebert Christmas was a happy event yesterday. We are lucky to have a good number of holidays together. The willingness of the Colorado and Oklahoma contingents to drive great distances allows that to happen in most years.

Andrew bought his Grandpa Phil a massive recycling truck this year. After Andrew creatively helped to open it with an excavator, they agreed that Andrew can borrow it for a while. Grandpa Phil will use a smaller recycling truck at his house. When Andrew starts dating I'll have to let him know that buying presents for other people with your own uses in mind doesn't always go over flawlessly :) It was still fun that he wanted to buy his grandpa a gift!

As usual, I got my "kicks" by other means. Andria took pity on me and my duct-taped boots. I considered buying new work boots for the last two years, but I guess the floppy toe over the last few months made it clear to everyone else that the time had arrived. The new and the old:

I have a few months to break them in around home before the 2018 bee season puts on many miles during the great bee journey!
