A job well done

You get a sense of satisfaction when a job goes well.  This was a job well done.  The sheet rock in the carport had been eaten away by the dripping honey. The reason the honey dripped was because the owner tried to spray the bees and plug it up with foam. He found that didn’t work.  We cut the board and saw some very old comb.  The new stuff was very brittle and there were a lot of Small Hive Beetles.  We didn’t hold much hope for the hive.  As Sy worked she kept pulling out brood and pollen.  We brought a full hive and were thankful for that .  When we put the board back we had it fit just right.  This was a job well done.
