No, I surely don't need any pills to enjoy a good meal and good conversation with an attractive lady. I might need some Rolaids later though. LOL

Yup.....and I know of some that had cardboard on the inside sole to cover the holes. But they still leaked! Way back when, at 12 we were still playing cowboys and indians. Now these kids are playing..........better not go there.)

3 hours of eating and conversation is enough even if it is with someone special. Besides, this is what happens when you get about 10 more years on you and you have to get on to bed so you can get back up at 4 am with nothing to do except start freezing some corn. LOL

Yep... and we were only allowed to wear the cardboard filled shoes to go to school and to church or in the winter. During warmer weather everyone went barefoot and stepped on rocks, thorns and bees and was able to scream more like an Indian Pow-Wow when that happened. You only got one pair of Poll Parrot shoes that came with a cartoon and that one pair had to last until the crops were sold the following year. Adidos, Nikes, and Magic Johnson came later. The only magic johnson that we knew was that thing we took to the outhouse. LOL

If you are not barefoot, you're overdressed.

I had Sunday (church) shoes that i rubbed with vaseline to keep them shiny and school shoes that i kept polished. Summers we wore white canvas tennis shoes. No going barefoot for us, ever! Mom was adamant about that! She was also adamant about not drinking from someone else's glass and washing our hands before a meal. We changed into play clothes immediately after school and had special clothes to wear to the creek.

That 4am thing. No thank you. But I know DOG needs some relief so there you are: 4am.
As a nod in your favor I will say 3 hours of food and conversation is enough. That's probably my limit for company manners. Lol

Thanks for the cotton ball trick Nope. I already made the moat bowl though, and that seems like a more manly contraption to me. The cotton trick would probably be fine as long as it works, but the moat works well, I have it on enough string to dump out the water and replace it easy. I think I've wiped out most of the ants with ant bait too I haven't seen to many in the moat.
I have seven or eight differed hummingbirds coming in now. Four new little green ones came in this morning. I guess they go invite others when they find a good easy source of sugar water.

Oh, how sweet Imposter! Don't you just adore Hummingbirds? Did you know that scientifically, they aren't "supposed" to be able to fly? Just goes to show ya, God knows what He's doing, LOL!

I have to refill my feeders this evening, and I might as well go ahead put new cotton around the strings while I'm at it.

I'll probably be back on later tonight. Wanted to go fishing today, but this soggy weather and all has my bad knee aching something fierce...
Bleh.

It is sad when someone alienates themselves from a group they wish to join in with. Instead of a friendly" hello, can I visit". They just dump doodoo on the front door step. Certainly not the way to make friends. Its Sad they lack people skills.
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.

Very nice to meet you! Please do join us! If you'd like to, you can register on here and make yourself a "moniker". It's not necessary though, you can keep posting as Marilyn if you'd like.

But on Topix, it's not a good idea to give out too much personal information that someone may figure you out in real life with... People can be brutal ya know. Lies may get posted, even when they don't know you in real life. Just be careful..

This is a good thread, the best on Topix in my opinion, and of course everyone will be glad to have you!! Nice to have another interesting person on the bird thread!!

Happy belated birthday, by the way!!

I've pondered on this moat and ant bait thing that you have made for a day or two now, Imposter. The thing that worries me about the ant bait is that Hummies also eat small insects. They're particularly fond of gnats, but ants I'm not sure of. But I'd surely not want to take the chance of killing even ONE single little Hummie because it ate an ant that was poisoned.

I've even put leftover melons or old fruit outside by the feeders for them. A nail put into the tree is perfect to push a piece of fruit on so they can get to it and quickly the gnats will gather on what you put out. You will see the Hummies hover over it to snag the gnats for a tasty snack.
(If you've never tried it, you should. It's really fun to watch).

They're like little fairy sprites. I get such a kick out of how they'll flit by, slam on the brakes, and then hover right in front of your face to hang in mid air for a minute to stare at you. Then they chipper and fuss for a split second and zip off into Hummie-land again. It gets to the point that I can pretty much tell one from the other after a while.

I guess we all have our old timer remedies and hand-me-down fix it ideas passed down from our older and wiser kin folk... But I'd just rather be safer than sorry.

How are you feeling now, by the way? Got your strength totally back yet? I've been sending "happy happy happy" thoughts and healing prayers your way!! It means a lot to me that we can have fun talking now... Truly it does! I adore every single one of you in this forum and you all have made some of my dark days, those when I'm feeling blue or ill, a lot brighter whether you know it or not.

(In case you think I'm whacked about using the "happy happy happy" thang, I'm a HUGE Duck Dynasty fanatic, hehe! And tonight is another marathon on the A&E channel, ROFLMBO!! I'll be glued to the tube for the duration. Can't wait for the new season to start in a few weeks)!

As a matter of fact, I think I'm gonna change my eyeball moniker icon to the Duck Commanders logo.... Bwaaaahahahahaha!!

Welcome, finally someone on here that is just a wee bit more ancient than me. I keep larger birds... chickens.
