  • A Parrot with Passengers

    Around 4 years ago, we were in Texas, visiting my oldest son. I noticed, in his back yard, that he had a parrot, made from an old golf cart tire, with some flowers in it. I thought it looked pretty neat and told his wife that. About two months after we got back home, a box arrived, from Texas, with one of those parrots in it. The moral of the story being - don't tell your kids you like something - or you may get one.

    Anyway, I have dutifully loaded the thing with flowers every spring and send them a picture. This year, Mother Nature blessed us with an addition. Looks like, these past few rainy days, the robins have been busy. When I went to water this morning, I found my parrot has passengers. So aside from our coming and goings - which are normally through the garage doors, the front porch is off-limits for a few weeks.

    So that's where the term "robin's blue" comes from! Enjoy the new additions to your family.

        Uh-oh - the passengers are awake and they are hungry.

        ATTENTION - All Flight Attendants to the Main Cabin! It's feeding time!

              I subscribe to a daily email from "homemade tools" and a few are hilarious, and some are ingenious. Here is an amusing one:

              Well done. Elk, are one of the most beautiful animals in North America as far as I am concerned.

              Lee, we have a pen turner displayed at ArtCrafters. Many of the pens are $25 and we sell maybe 4 - 5 each month. I am sure at a place like Knoxville he could more than double the price....

              We could not do that in our kitchen the ceiling and walls are way too crooked. So to fool the eye some of our cabinets go all of the way up with trim molding the others are lower also with crown molding. There is no continuous line to catch the eye.

              WHAT? We’re taking them down? Bruce decided he should have put them flush with the ceiling so we’re taking them down and raising them 1/2”!!! Do you know how heavy these are? He decided he wanted as narrow as possible, or no, molding at the top at all. And yes, Scott they have stuff in them.😲😲...
