    I think our feeders swing too much for Squirrel to be entirely happy about it. He should be able to manage it, but prefers the food on the tables instead.

    One of the tables has a rail around it that the smaller birds queue on and the pidgeons can't seem to manage that table. The Crows, Magpies and d Squirrel seem to have no trouble though.

    I needed a smile. I got the 1st season of the Muppets from the library. Laughing now...

    Not sure if this is good or bad, but got an invite to a Job interview. I loathe interviews and have been on both sides of the desk.

    Not really thinking it was a good right now but had two tooth extractions today which were infected and the pain was getting worse. All for the greater good.

    I have had a hard time finding Junior's cat food at the stores lately, and he, of course, is a picky eater. There's really only one food he really likes. Our local stores have been out of it for a week. I had previously stocked up but now I'm down to just two cans . I've tried three local grocery stores, two major chain stores and the online specialty stores--they either didn't have it or had it for a noticeably more expensive price. I finally found it on Amazon, at a much cheaper price. The major chain store had online a box of 12 cans for $20--a huge mark-up and way more than I wanted to pay.

    I got it online--a box of 48 for a just a few dollars more. SCORE! He now has enough food for 24 days. It even arrived a day before they said it would.

    The OnTrac delivery driver threw my package against the door (I heard a loud thud) and the item was intact. Does that count?

    My daughters and granddaughters came over with Mothers Day gifts today. Daughter # 2 gave me a pair of Baby Yoda earrings. They are really cute!

    How much I smile when I get my car back from the garage depends on the bill.

    My favorite son took me out to a nice restaurant for dinner. Good food and good company.

    I got through the hardest and most time-consuming part of a project at work. It's all downhill from here! Erm, in a good way, that is. :p

    I won an auction on a shortwave radio I had always wanted. Put in a bid of $20 as a gag and did it in the last 3 hours or so of the auction.... I figured a low bid like that someone will top it. I ended up getting it.
