|MY LITTLE TWEETSY PIE|
|ALONG WITH ALL THE BIRDS OUR SQUIRRELS WERE ACTIVE THIS AFTERNOON AS WELL|
Needed to pick up a prescription at Walmart and Kelly needed a couple cans of 'Cream Of Chicken Soup' so Pheebs and I braved the elements and headed off. Worst roads we came across of course we're right here in our very own Park. It was a light drizzly rain all the way to Goderich and with varied snow patches along the way I kept the Jeep in 4-wheel drive.
|IT WAS A MIX OF RAIN, SLEET, AND SNOW EARLIER TODAY|
|ROTARY COVE ROADBLOCK|
|'AWWW NUTS DAD WE CAN'T GET TO THE DOGGY WALKING AREA NOW'|
|ROADS WERE A LITTLE DICELY ICY IN SPOTS|
|OOOPS, MY CAMERA AUTOMATICALLY FOCUSED ON THE WRONG HORSE|
|THINKING ABOUT HAVING A SNOOZE IN THE BACK SEAT|
Home again I shoveled some slush off the pathways and around the birdfeeders. Not many birds around at first but later up when glancing up from our sunroom's desktop computer there was probably the best part of two dozen birds zooming around everyplace. On the ground, on the feeders, and in the trees. Cardinals, Blue Jays, Mourning Doves, Woodpeckers, Purple Finches, Juncos, Black-Capped Chickadees, Goldfinches, and one Tufted Titmouse. I am convinced they are all in cahoots and travel together on a chartered bird bus from one bird feeding area to another. The bus pulls up, the door opens, and a swoosh of birds fly out and gobble up all the birdseed in sight. Then it's back in the bus they go and off down the street to the next neighbor's bird feeders. A minute ate all is quiet in the front yard again as I sit blankly staring out the window wondering, 'what the hell just happened'!!
|YOU CAN SEE WHY ITS CALLED A 'BLACK-CAPPED' CHICKADEE|

GROANER'S CORNER:(( I work in a busy office, and when a computer goes down it causes quite an inconvenience. Recently one of our computers not only crashed, it made a noise that sounded like a heart monitor. "This computer has flat-lined," a co-worker called out with mock horror. "Does anyone here know how to do mouse-to-mouse?"
Mother: "When I was your age, my mother used to hide money around the house for me that I would find only if I performed my chores particularly well. One time when I was cleaning out the cupboards for her, I found $20 under the old shelf paper."
Daughter: "Wow! What a cool idea! Why didn't you ever do that with me?"
Mother: "But my dear ... I have been."
=================So you don't believe in Global warming eh!!
