snow place like home


By 230338


Well we here so far have been very fortunate,the snow has,nt been bad. Very cold and ice and frost on everything outside. Braved it to my bird feeders after de- iceing the palace (Shed)locks to get access to their seed. I could hear the tiny squeeks in the tree,s as they observed my actions. Immediate responce from my good lady in the lounge as she stated 3 Robins darted into the feeders promptley, and several blue tits descended onto the fat ball,s. The Tree,s behind the boxes are abundant with several types of birds. They hide on approach then on retreating its blooming tantamount to a stampede(L0L). The Robins are so blinking tubby, much like a small football. I get a great deal of pleasure in the summer months from the birds so its my way of offering them a little pleasure in return. Take care all ,hope the weather in your area improves. Tony

Hi Rose Begorra! if Elizabeth gets wind of my faulty palace lock i,m done for. Think i may have to consult Tiny on more Security measures. Have electrified the door and floorboards,and pointed flame thrower at the window. All are working fine i think but am still waiting for Tiny to comeback(LoL). Take care Rose. Blooming quiet without Tiny. Tony
