    I think I have a 1500 watt heater under it and a 1500 watt in it. It is still frozen, I have three drinking cups it looks like two of them thawed in the sun the third one is a little bit in the shade and did not thaw.

    I am wondering if the thick plastic barrel is stopping the heat from the bottom heater getting into the water. Then there is the chance the heater is not working. I am seriously thinking of going back to metal founts and just putting the barrels away until spring.

    I went out and hung out with the birds, gave them some scratch (Oats, corn and BOSS.) It is interesting to see what each one picks up. Corn went first to most of them.

    King George is in jail today. He bit the hand that feeds him, HARD! It is a good thing the hand was wearing a thick leather glove. It is amazing for being such a great looking guy and having such sweet women in his life what a belly Button he is. I held him for about 15 minutes after the bite, He was not happy and did not settle down the entire time. I had let Bert Jr out and Blackie was running around so it was not smart to let him be free too. I wanted his girls to get some out time though.

    I have some pictures for BC, but it will be a bit before I get them posted, I have some women's work to do.

    I will get you better pictures they did not turn out well. The darn birds were always in the shade or running when I tried to take their pictures.

    And while I was uploading these
    I heard quite a racket,
    wondered what could it be,
    and how do I sack it?

    I jumped to me feet and ran to see,
    and behold looking back at me?


    12 baby birds sitt'in in a row
    Staring through my window
    seeing how old I would grow
    and what Judy would throw?

    Happy was I The wife was gone
    and I hoped it to be long
    That she would be gone.
    So I could write this song


    about this I have never lied
    For had she been, I might have died
    for even if they were outside,
    her angry would be a rising tide.


    I took the picture to save the moment
    but wondered how wise I might be
    for if she saw it there would be movement
    that could be the end of me..

    she does not see the humor
    in advents like this
    She would find it as funny as a tumor
    with the broom she would not miss

    When she swung at my head
    for laughing at this
    and I doubt she would miss
    and I would be sleeping in the shed.
    if I was not dead.






    Ok it is a poor rhyme, but you get the idea, I took this looking out the kitchen window, Judy would not find the humor in this that I did.
