We're bird people you know

Yes, we have birds of every stripe and feather or feathered stripes anyway. We have three doves, a family of crows, two families of robins, untold numbers of bright yellow finches, their ordinary brothers, two different woodpeckers, two redheaded sparrows, and a chipmunk no less. All of them are beautiful to watch and endlessly entertaining. We watch them over morning coffee. The outside of the property is slowly shaping up, all of Lynn's fish survived in the pond with all of the rain we have had and they have grown big too, must be a lot of bugs in that water. They're coming up now for regular food so things have obviously gotten under control underwater. The grass seed is coming in all over the place, and the sod around the septic and patio as well as by the garage has taken root and can hardly be distinguished from the old grass. I'm also starting to get the hang of the ride'em tractor, I only use 1/2 a tank of gas to do the property now instead of 1 and 1/2 tanks. Less power and more thinking involved. I'm gonna start paying attention to Zamboni drivers, they know what they're doing.
