The difference between his and ours is that sadly we won't be able to put the real deal in ours — just in case they decided to swarm and become killer bees, buzzing and stinging their way around the marina, destroying everything in their path........OK, maybe I'm being a little too dramatic now (I blame it on the 2nd coffee I've just had). Now where was I?
