Don't have to do that. There are images online that I can print from. I was looking for other, possibly easier suggestions. I like an idea I saw for a line of random-length strings of bird feathers. Sounds like a pretty way to distract me and scare the birds.
Yeah right after I posted that I went to Wiki and found a whole bunch of them under "Crow". But then Spike showed up to do some work for me on my computer. Plus it was his regular nighttime visit. So by the time he left, I had to log in and check emails from two sights, etc. Forgot all about Wiki.

I'm sitting in my living room watching diners, drive-ins and dives.

I have a question. My coffee maker is brand spanking new. Do they put GPS in the clocks on them now? Just wondering.
GPS stands for Global Positioning System. The technology uses satellites to provide mapping and location information. It has nothing to do with the time.

That sound really familiar to how we do the whole knocking down the bee/wasp hive.

Also I have spent a lot of time waiting on my kids to be done hanging out with their friends, kinda like you had to do with.

Their is always so many options you can do while waiting.

Hope you enjoyed your soup!
Happy Cooking!

Sometimes I just sit and hold Shrek's hand, checking his pulse and watching him breathe...he's my Best Bud, too.

More positive vibes on the way. Hugs!

I'm getting myself psyched to got shopping. I have one more RX to pick up so I'll have myself a little shopping spree too.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Sitting here waiting for the phone to ring.

Our sweet Cheyenne (2yr. old g.daughter) is having her second operation this morning to try and straighten her crossed eyes. I pray this one works for her. The first surgery was successful, but her eyes have drifted some, once more.
Wish the phone would ring. sigh.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Kayelle, I'm sending my thoughts and prayers for a successful surgery and recovery for Cheyenne. And hugs for grandma too!

I am hoping to go back to sleep after a rough night of leg pain and coughing, then having to get up early to accept my grocery order.

They called me at 7:30 am (I got to sleep around 5) to say my credit card didn't go through. I couldn't understand it until they told me the amount of my bill. Apparently they charged me for a kilo each of the three deli meats instead of 100 grams! That will do it!

A day of helping at our friends' market garden followed by feeding the pigs. Then home to make our own dinner - leek pie to use up some of our excess leeks!

We're not here for a long time. We're here for a good time
