how can a dumb topic about dead birds go on this long
Because it is only dumb to those that insist that the topic remains only on birds, when there are so many other things in GOD's great world to discuss besides birds. What's yout pleasure?

How about the gear ratio in a 25 hp outboard motor or the correct temperature setting for an incubator to hatch baby chicks or the number of times that "Gone With the Wind" has been the tv attraction or the muttom chops of Civil War General Ambrose Burnside for whom sideburns was named ? You tell us, and we will join in with what little we do know.

I remember when my dad hired a man with a horse and plow to till our garden. Watching that horse clomping down the street is a favorite childhood memory of mine. Heck, we lived in the city but it did not seem out of the ordinary. The town and traffic back then was much less congested.
I also remember my elderly neighbor ringing a bell when the Vietnam war ended.
Played kick the can with neighborhood kids, rode bicycles, made braclets out of clover flowers.

Drank RC cola out of a bottle...couldn't beat that on a hot summer day. Making tents out of blankets draped over a clothes line stabilized with clothes pins. Listening to AM radio, the smell of honeysuckle when a cool breeze blew.
Geesh, I'm nostalgic :)
Beautiful weather hope everyone is having a blessed Spring.

and as usual...... gizmo showed up ten minutes before the rain meowing in protest....lol had not seen him since before we left out on our trip. not surprising.... he does that every time spring hits... i dont see him for a strait week and just as i begin to panic and consider checking the highway...the rain comes and he follows.... or he comes and the rain follows. posted up in his window sill now, letting me know how awful i am for not being able to control the weather. thank goodness for ear buds and tom petty, i cant hear a thing. he is not amused.... hubby's cat tried to come console him, got hooked right in his nose, turned around and popped Joe poodle, then angel chased him into the cat closet and now she is prancing around whining in protest, which sent the others to their respective hiding spots, and joe shaking like a leaf in my lap. unhappy campers all around except for me of course....

dedicated to gizmo.....


"you don't know how it feels.....you don't know how it feels..... to be meeeeeeow" kinda fits

ohh! and my peas finally spouted. yay!

It is Spring!!!! Yesterday we cut dozens of saplings and tall skinny trees in the wooded area behind the house... Now to get some kind of real help to load them onto the trailer and the them off!!! My better half worked on all the "toys" so they are running right and if not we made a list of pieces and parts to pick up in town today. Even the riding mower is getting its share of attention! Lol
Hope everyone has a wonderful day....even the "critters". Lol

It's amazing how so many people can't stay on topic.

The birds are still dying.

I get those baskets that hold the mesh of seed and molasses. The birds love it. Have several in the yard that I can see.
