It's Hot, Hot, Hot!

I haven't blogged lately. It's too hot to do much except stay in and read so that's what I've been doing.

One morning though before it got terribly humid, I took myself back to Ace Hardware and bought a "cheap" bird feeder...the kind that hangs by a hook. Of course, I didn't have anything to hang it on so put it on the clothesline with picture-wire through the chain connecting it to the line. Now my arch enemy was sure he could manage another feeder but he had a helluva time. First, the line moved and because the feeder is made mostly of plastic, it also swayed in the breeze. So he's up there doing calisthenics on the high wire. Wish I could have video-taped him and posted it here. I do have all sorts of birds. Did identify a Downy woodpecker, black-capped chickadee and the usual array of sparrows. Still haven't identified my red bird with the black helmet and had a green one today. Think he is in the warbler family. I need grandpop big time!

The kids were here last night and Abby stayed over. Today, she met up with one of her friends from Laurel Springs from her old school.
