I really have to do some reading and catch up will all of your blogs, I have not posted everyday like I did for a while and I sure miss it but you all know how it is, real life pulls you away at times and when this happens your computer time is limited.
We did get that fine laptop but I just haven’t figured out how to strap it around my neck as of yet and I know a couple of bungee cords positioned just right would work but Cindy wont let me play with bungee cords anymore since the time I hooked a few together to tie down a load of goodies on the back of my truck, you know how it is the cords are just a little bit too short so you just pull a bit harder and about the time I got it hooked the one on the opposite side decided to break and yes it came across at a high rate of speed and tagged me right in the eye, here I am sitting on the ground holding my face with a handful of blood, I get up and look into the side mirror of the truck and see that my eye is still in place although almost swollen shut by this time, my next trick was to let Cindy know what had happened and remove my contact from that eye. Needless to say my eye was not seriously hurt and I am not allowed to play with bungee cords now.
We have a whole slew of Hummingbirds around here and we do our best to keep the feeders full and really enjoy the antics of them fighting for the position of who is in charge I suppose, there will be up to four at a time dive bombing each other and stopping for a drink in between the dives, there is one it seems that always appears whenever another shows up to take a drink, he gets himself really tough and for the most part keeps the others at bay, it’s kind of funny to watch the little ones swoop in and feed while the fight is going on amongst this one and some of the others. I actually started watching this little guy and he will swoop in to get a drink or run another off then take a position in the tree within view of the feeder, I positioned myself at the base of the tree to watch and there he was just sitting there really still watching the feeder until another one arrived, he would dive bomb the intruder so to say then return right back to his perch.
