Hello, Marilyn, and welcome! Happy Birthday also!!<quoted text>
Hello! May I join your conversation? I have been reading back thru and I would like to join in, then I came across this comment so I thought I would introduce myself. My grandson just gave me his old computer and I am learning. He tells me I need to get with the times. He told me about this site and that you folks are my age. I see alot of non sense in other places but seems like I have much in common with the folks here. I would like to register and join in if I am welcomed. I don't have a name thing yet but he's to help me do that later. My name is Marilyn and I am 72 as of yesterday. That's when he brought this to me. I love my birds and have also used the cotton on my feeders. Lord's blessings to you all.
About being registered on topix-- you don't have to register to post. Actually I am registered under a totally different name but have been posting under a gray (unregistered) name for quite some time. There are benefits to being registered such as being able to private message (pm) other registered posters.
I have a few bird feeders in the backyard. Cardinals, goldfinches, doves etc. Then I have a few chickens: 5 mature hens and 3 about five months old. A couple outside cats and an outside dog. That's enough for us! Lol
