My kids live for their computers. They have no idea of what is going on around them. I was chatting on-line with DD this morning (she moved half the state away) and mentioned the trio of white peafowl that I bought on eggbid back in 2004 (she would have been in 10th grade), and how they died a week after I got them and how I recently found that the guy I bought them from wasn't reputable. She didn't know anything about them! As excited as I was to get them, how could she not know? And DS got off of his behind and did some snow blowing for once. DH told him that it would be nice if he did paths for me to feed the critters (snow about 2' deep). He did all but the path back to the turkey house because he 'didn't know that they were there'. I am grateful for what he did, but how could he not know that there were turkeys there? They have been there since July! He walked past them every day when he went out to target practice! I don't expect them to be as passionate about the birds, but how can they be so clueless about something that means so much to me?
