I hold my tongue on the phone, but in my head I'm saying WTF?!? What could they be thinking closing their warehouse for twelve whole days during the busiest retail season of the year? Geesh! What kinda company gives their employees the holiday season off!?! Truly. What kinda company?
Who's the scrooge now, huh? Well, at least I'm kind to birds. (Now that's a weird segue, eh?)
Last May was the first spring in our current home and I took a week off to do some organizing and relaxing and I got a chance to do the first birding in my life. Where I grew up the only birds I recall were pigeons and seagulls. So I was more than eager to spend time during that vacation watching the birds. It didn't take long to get hooked. And slowly but surely I've been accumulating bird feeding apparatuses ever since.
Anticipating the snow inhibiting my access to the bird feeders in the yard, I devised a way to be able to keep feeding the birds all winter, as well as bring the birds closer to the house for keener viewing.
I'm pretty darn impressed with my grand notion of stacking the suet feeders. Now we can watch them with ease while we eat. We have one downy woodpecker who loves the suet.
