Something that relaxes me...
Sometimes, I just sit on my back porch and watch my little corner of paradise. I sit back there and smoke my evil cigarettes and let one of my friends relax me.
Sometimes it relaxes me...sometimes I go out in the yard and the damn bird feeder is on the ground because the squirrels got hold of it! Freakin' rats with hair on their tails...all they are...
When you look at the pics of the birds, you'll see a metal bar that holds the feeder at the top. That used to be plastic and somehow, a squirrel climbed on top of it and chewed it down!
This is Red. He comes and visits me a few times a day.
Then he goes back up into the highest tree he can find and sings to all the other birds...."Andy's got chow back here!"
I end up with a lot of different kinds of birds in my yard, the only ones that are kind of annoying are the Grackles. They're bullies, but mostly to each other, it's kind of amusing to watch and they have the most annoying screech! They puff up and yell at each other.
I get all kinds of critters back here and I have a postage stamp of a yard in a neighborhood full of postage stamp sized yards. Life is good though, I get more time on the golf course and less time in the yard!
