I was out in the yard trying to bring the mess of
it all back under control when I heard a screech
tap tap tap
tap tap tap
Right above my head was this fella
who was not the slightest bit nervous to have me
checking him out or bothered
when I ran inside to get my camera.
Now you other folks with lots of
winged wildlife will scoff but to me
this guy is a miracle.
I have only seen one other woodpecker
in my yard in 20 years
and that was when the kids were tiny.
I quickly looked up NV birds and I think he is
a male downy woodpecker..
If you know he is not, please tell me what he is.
(I am told he is a ladder backed)
He hung around over an hour
and cheered me up after another
The yard is still not done,
major tree trims needed, $$$$
some disease attacking two of them
and the guy has not shown up twice.
The pollen from the worst tree had to be scooped
out of my gutter in BUCKET FULLS,
with me dangling from a ladder.
I love my shady yard but this labor is just too
much anymore..or I'm too old or maybe both.
Think about all the snow most of you
have shoveled this winter..
yeah...like that...... ARGH!!!!!
My handyman replaced my 20 year old
bathroom faucets yesterday but
the hot is on the right and the cold on the left now,
and he thinks I'm ridiculous to mind...
talked to me like I was 2 years old, AND says
he hooked them up exactly the way
they were originally plumbed...sigh
I made some Italian Mac and Cheese
last night for dinner (pinterest recipe)
and I plan to drown myself in a heaping bowl
in about 2 minutes, and cheer the heck up...
or maybe I'll rant into the ****It Bucket
left is right, right is left
hot is cold, cold is hot
what's the big deal?
that's like me signing
you'd know it was me right?
