    Found out a few minutes ago from the wife, we have a Mocking Bird pair in the front Jasmine vine. Now I've read Mocking Birds and Blue Birds DO NOT GET ALONG, so it's going to be interesting to see if they fight around the birdbath water. We had a Mocking bird Pr. in the neighbor's bush in front of their house close to our house for months. We also noticed a nest under our mail box. We haven't seen it but our neighbor has. We think it's a House Wren. It some how thinks a snake skin in the front will be a deterrent toward others. :D

    We also have Downy Woodpeckers all day long this spring. My wife saw a baby one wanting it's parent to feed it still. Rapid flapping is a sure give away of a baby wanting food. :D Keeping Suet in this feeder sure draws the Wrens, Nuthatches and Downy woodpeckers all day long. ;)

    A mistake they keep making...
    Chevy Traverse Ditches 2.0-Liter Turbo-Four Engine
    but "announced a new four-banger"

    I agree in general but there were bright spots during those days, such as this '79 396:

    In the late '80s I bought my great-uncle's low-mileage '77 Buick Estate wagon with 403. It easily held all but one piece of our church's audio system when in the years of temporary locations. :-)
    It was similar to this one, but with whitewalls, hood ornament and center chrome hood strip:

    We're still cautiously optimistic that there will indeed be a summer in northern New England sometime this year -- before winter settles in. B)

    In Alabama and Georgia this year, we practically skipped spring.

    In Pennsylvania, for the past three years, our four seasons are Waiting for Summer, Rain Season, Fall, and Winter... :/

    I honestly don't think we've had a 48-hour stretch without precipitation yet this year.

    I ALMOST bought this poster in a 3' X 5' size I think it was but then decided not to.

    My step-daughter shortly there after bought me a huge 4x6 Dark side of the moon poster that I've yet to hang up. Some day!

    Might be a while before she's willing to share puppy dog eyes with you again -- or maybe not? ;)

    I felt so bad for her.

    She was sooo excited about an early morning car ride.

    True, my space should have anything I want in it and it does EXCEPT that one poster. :s

    My wife wouldn't have given a care about a poster 30 years ago. But man have things changed since she isn't the 105 lb. sexy woman anymore. She still harbors hate from when I showed a very sexy looking neighbor my collection in the cottage 25 years ago and my wife wasn't there. :'( Jealousy has ruined way too many marriages!

    Does that imply that cats have also developed muscular control to execute the look of utter disdain?

    Probably so.
    I do know this, though.

    We had a (dearly departed) Cornish Rex (uninspiringly named Rex) who until he shuffled off this mortal coil at 19 years old, had amazingly acute hearing with his ears like sails. Shake out a kitchen trash bag, and he went running and I expected him to put his paws in his lugs, Play the Rolling Stones at ridiculous levels, and he would sit in front of the speakers and sway with his eyes shut. A very discerning cat, who was also such a grumpy and awkward old f a r t as to be a PITA. Of course all thus was before he went stone deaf and sat smilingly knowing. I counted 64 ear muscles.

    Our cat Cali, who's 15+ and is getting feline dementia now, used to bolt at the sound of that snapping open of the trash bag too. :D

    ij5uiommc0dk.png
    But over the years, she gotten wise or just plain lazy and just looks up at me and says " here comes that annoying sound again huh?" and doesn't flinch a hair now.

    Cali can hear the dry food hit her dry bowl while she is on the back porch, 15' away with the back door shut.

    She hears it through her cat door! :D

    Cats are cool SOMETIMES.

    Our previous neighbor's cat "Capone" was COOL ALL THE TIME!

    Nancy and I LOVED that cat!

    You know...
    it's kinda too bad that it's not 1969 any more.
    Fifty years ago.

    Back in them days, by gum, hifi cables were indestuctible.
    You could even hit 'em with a hammer.
    Guaranteed noise-free!
