    Well, he has had his simple-minded fun at our expense.

    It's gratifying to know we have a purpose in life.

    Thumbs up Re: Busy Bees or Busy Bee's

    Good Morning:

    Yes, I did open it my friend..............That is a small two man operation within a local community........I figured Bees & Country Boys might differ in my innocent inquiry.........Even though this is an extremely small rural area, many people travel through our area....Even Larry The Cable Guy mentioned one of our small local establishments, on one of his programs.........Just trying to look half way straight among the educated public..........

    It appears that our European neighbors are quiet cranky concerning Country Boy's and Bees.......I thought this was a Forum to discuss Correct English Grammar. Down here in Hillbilly Country, we get rid of Teachers' with this type of personality and attitude. I consider this matter closed.

    Thanks for all yawls’ interest in making this subject & post part of your daily entertainment.........

    Busy Bee

    And that's why you need to come to an Internet forum to ask random people about how to use an apostrophe. Also, try easing off the . button.

    Closed indeed.
