Celebrating the 2007 World Series
This photo was taken in our back garden during the afternoon of 30 October 2007. Our team, the Boston Red Sox, had won the 2007 World Series and we were celebrating by watching the rolling rally victory parade on television.
During the parade we heard a LOT of noise. It wasn't Papelbon and Dropkick Murphys "Shipping up to Boston." It was coming from our back deck. Who knew the Jacuzzi Sisters were Sox fans?!
If you're a member of the Nation check out the great rally photos at SawxBlog.com! They might be enough to tide you over until Spring Training begins!
OK. So this isn't about bees and beekeeping. But we suspect our "girls" out at the hive are probably Sox fans, too.

We invited our magical poetess friend, Emily Gutchell, to view our blog recently. Emily is one of our hive's best patrons--she really enjoyed our honey from the 2007 extraction and generously shared her purchases with her friends.
When she saw this photo of the Jacuzzi Sisters celebrating the Red Sox winning the World Series she emailed: "...I'm working on a haiku inspired by your glorious picture on your blog of the birds bathing raucously..."
I'm so pleased to write that Emily has given us permission to include her haiku here!
