Felix was faking, long live Felix

It turns out the bees going in and out of Felix were robbers from Oscar.  I reconfigured the hive to the same setup as Oscar and ordered new bees.  The replacements and their queen arrived this morning.  Of course it is raining buckets and in the mid 50s.  The sun eventually peeked out this afternoon and I hived the new arrivals.  No issues, no problem.  The bees seemed pleased that their new home was mostly furnished and partially stocked with honey.
