Wednesday Wicks - June 12, 2012


Good Luck, Sally-Ann and Robin. Robin is pretty well known nationally now. Sally-Ann is a local treasure and has been a fixture in our lives forever.

Funny and kinda sad at the same time. Was it something he said? Those jokes wrote themselves. Still, I liked the one she used to sign off.

Old tube feeder on the left, new one right center. A chickadee was coming back and forth to the new one. It'll be a few days before all of the birds warm up to it. If the baffle below it keeps the varmints away, they will surely like it better. The old gray one comes down this weekend. May add more to this tomorrow morning.

Quote of the Day

The best news that we received was that I’m a perfect match. And when I got that news, it was like Christmas times 1,000. Because anyone who knows what it’s like to wait for that kind of news realizes the trauma.

Blog of the day is here.

Quote from said blog: "calm, quiet and
shrouded in mist.


The new bird feeder looks good. How high is the top?

Okay, that gives me some perspective. I'll be interested in how it all works. I'm trying to figure out how high and how far from jumping points I need to set my new bird feeders to foil the demon squirrels.

"...the top baffle on the new feeder is not on the ground every night when I get home."

Haha...that right there puts you one up on me.
