Yes she is! And I have a name for her. Joy! It is an American female name and it also is an emotion.

I think it is right for her, for she brings us very much joy.

How is this? Do you like it?

Your friend,
~Cat

Don't park under trees! Bird Poo is caustic and can cause the paint to become damaged. Remove it as soon as possible.

I must park there. It is the closest handicapped parking space next to our home. DA has other spaces in the front but they are all under trees also and not so close.

I cleaned it from the car. I think I shall look for a cover for Joy.

Get yourself one of those fake Owls that have a bobble head and sit it on the roof of your car. We have one on our boat and it works good.

I agree, get if off as soon as possible. Buy some terry cloth microfibre cloths. There can be grit in bird poo. It can scratch the paint if you aren't careful when you wipe it off. The terry cloth let's the grit not push against the paint. Also, spritz with some water before wiping.

Those fake owls only seem to work for a few months. Then the birds get familiar with it and it starts to get dirty.

Gwen and I went to Lowe's where I bought the carabiner and C clamp for Azia's car restraint and on the journey home, we stopped at Advance Auto and I bought two car covers! No more poo, at least at home.

Joy has all her clothes on now.

Your friend,
