The Bees Knees for CTS359 and JUGS523…!

Hello All!

I always laughed out loud when I heard that saying…the bees knees!

Many years later, a kid at work, yup, way younger than me, would

use that cliché’ all the time, it made me chuckle,

someone so young saying something,

my Mother use to say to me as a child!

Life is the BEES KNEES!
