After watching 'Little Red' race around the front yard earlier this evening climbing shrubs and cedar trees trying to make another bid on the bird station she finally made her move and I saw her jump from a nearby tall shrub and land right on the feeder platform. I didn't shoose her off the feeder because I figured after all that effort she just put in she deserved a reward. Half an hour later with my tree trimmer in hand I set up my ladder and trimmed back Little Reds launch point and with my tape measure I measured the distance between that shrub and the bird feeder platform. That little Squirrel had been jumping 'seven feet' from the shrub to the feeder!! The PVC pipe I put in a few days ago has been a complete success and so much so that I noticed today and yesterday that she wasn't even trying to go up that pole anymore.
|SHE HAD TRIED SO HARD TO GET ONTO THE FEEDER I LET HER SIT HERE FOR AWHILE EATING TO HER HEART'S CONTENT|
|I EVEN LET HER EAT SOME PEANUT BUTTER SUET UP ON THE FEEDER'S ROOF|
|LITTLE RED JUMPED FROM THE VERY TOP OF THAT GREEN SHRUB TOP LEFT TO THE BOTTOM DECK OF THE FEEDER AT RIGHT.....THAT WAS A SEVEN FOOT JUMP|

A distraught senior citizen
phoned her doctor's office.
"Is it true," she wanted to know,
"that the medication
you prescribed has to be taken
for the rest of my life?"
"'Yes, I'm afraid so,"' the doctor told her.
There was a moment of silence
before the senior lady replied,
"I'm wondering, then,
just how serious is my condition

You come up with such lovely phrases like in this blog posting you said "(rained)enough to make the clover giggle again". I loved that.ReplyDelete
