Thamks for popping in. Lovely weather we’re having here in the Southeast. For those who have a garden, this is a perfect day. Not to hot, not too cold, not too windy, just a slight occasional breeze.
Cannot wait to see my parents this afternoon, and hang out with them in their lovely garden. If the pandemic has taught me one thing (actually it has been a HUGE learning curve for this old bird – at so many different levels), it is to get my priorities straight, and put the important people in my life in pole position. For too many years the people I love have played second fiddle in my orchestra, because Wurka and Hollic had me in their grip. But nowadays I have a crystal clear picture. I may still be very busy, but nothing is more important than taking care of and spending time with my family. NOTHING.
A couple of weeks ago, Mum and Dad had a huge old tree in their garden felled. The tree surgeon said if they didn’t cut it down, a strong wind and a storm would bring it down, right on the house. They’d already had a taste of that when a large scots pine came through the bedroom window during the hurricane in October ‘87. Remember this?
Mmm. Well Mr Fish. That’ll learn ya! Anyway, Mum and Dad didn’t need telling twice, so the tree was cut down, which is sad but safe, and now there is a 6ft stump in the middle of the garden. “A bird table fitted on that stump would be great”, said Dad.
So Dave went off to his man cave – and made one. It is brilliant. I shall take pics when it has been mounted this afternoon. It’s huge, it’s sturdy and it is built to last!
In fact, I shall tune back in later with the pics once it’s in situ….
They LOVED it!! It looks like it grew there. Thanks, Dave. You are one in a million.
We doodled a fab Bird table early on in the SHAC-Shack, didn’t we? Here it is as a stamp set and in Groovi.
