DH will not be thrilled.

If we are unfortunate enough to have it swing back into the State's, I plan to get all of my free ranging birds under roof and wrap their runs in hardware clothe and wildlife netting to keep out all wild birds and rodents.let's all just keep our fingers crossed.
I know, whats worse is getting all the emails from Nan at the state! ughhhh although it is nice getting it from the source it scares the bejimmenies out of me even more!
