Chuck came through for me today. I received the four queens that I had ordered early spring 2008. He sent me an email yesterday stating that he had upgraded my order to tier II queens. They were and they arrived in excellent condition (I wonder what it is that I get queens in better shape from the east coast than out of California?). I was worried like alot of others and thought I would never see my queens.
I hope Chuck is able to survive this ordeal and get his queen business back on stable ground again. I really enjoyed my phone conversations with him. I think he really probably is a sincere person who had a bad streak of luck with his bees that just about put him out of the bee business. I would be willing to try him again if he is willing to accept payment after I receive the queens. That sound fair. Trust
