Particularly as I didn’t make use of any part of the night for sleeping. And now it’ll hardly be dark at all, I wonder if I’ll sleep tonight either. Anyway, I didn’t waste the time, I spent several hours writing a complicated letter, which saved time today. Or, actually, yesterday, now I notice the time. Anyway, I’m in bed.
The Sage was particularly pleased with his Father’s Day present from Al: the very first jar of honey from his bees. He was awfully touched that Al gave it to him. All this swarming that went on earlier in the summer has turned out to be a bonus, for there is quite a demand for queen bees with a starter colony of workers and they are quite valuable. Al has had several enquiries and has sold two. At this rate, it’ll only be another five years or so before he recoups his outlay on hives and equipment.
