    Thank you.
    Our neighbor's horses (well, horse & pony) did all the heavy lifting, composition-wise.

    So we have a mated pair of these guys in our neighborhood.
    Baltimore city.
    It's been 40-ish years since I've seen one. It's the first time my wife has ever seen one.

    My favorite bird - the reason my name is BlueBirdMusic.

    The Eastern Bluebirds really love meal worms, and are mainly insect eaters. They can have up to three family's per year and prefer a certain type of house or a hole in a tree.

    One is very rewarded when they appear. In Georgia, there are quite a few around everywhere now. In the 50's, 60's and 70's, the Bluebirds became scarce because of insect sprays.

    Thanks for posting the picture.

    Bluebirds are thick here. Two decided to nest in my wood stove chimney and got trapped I found their poor lifeless bodies when I cleaned out my stove. Need to get on the roof and cover the opening with hail screen

    Ken, I was just up in Polkville the other day. Should have taken a shot. If I am up there again, I'll snap a photo. It's a one light town in the middle of nowhere in NC.

    New toy! Wife is not so happy about it though. But she just won the soundbar debate. So we are getting a new tv for the bedroom with a soundbar and a wall mount and sound bar for our tv living room. The only plus is I get to put my RTA12B back in my listening room while I tear apart the Infinity speakers.

    Got this earlier this year. Lots of fun too. About $120 online. No dead spot where the puck can land. You need a table for it though.

    Played a lot of Foosball in college. Played goalie and had a girlfriend who played forward and we would beat 95% of the people we played. Her brother was a very good player and taught her how to play. The guys hated getting beat by us. I also had a good friend who played forward (he was better than her) and we would put a quarter up and play all night on that quarter.

    I would have a table, but I messed my wrist up in a skiing accident and I can't play now.

    BTW, nice table.

    "At the base of that wall, you’ll find a rock that has no earthly business in a hayfield. Piece of black, volcanic glass. There’s something buried under it I want you to have.”

    but, but... I like our neighbors -- it would likely tick 'em off if I deconstructed their wall.
