Nancy and Sandy Make Us Laugh

Hi, BABM ladies.  I thought I’d share this video I took of Nancy and Sandy last year at our basket-retreat at Heidelmann Lodge making Bee jokes while making baskets.  Some of you may have seen it before, but they are soooo funny, I thought all of you might enjoy it again.
