The Saturday Special.........
The fake cardinal on our fake wreath seems to look a little mean. I remember one year when a male cardinal tried to attack this fake one telling it to leave his territory.
A real female cardinal was attacking the suet cake yesterday. It was picking out things and throwing them on the ground and would stop to eat what she found that she liked to eat.
A hairy woodpecker was at the suet cake yesterday also. He showed up only one time but maybe he came back when I wasn't looking.
Frequent visitors to the feeder are the downy woodpeckers. Some have the red markings on the head and others do not. I had run out on suet for a couple of days and the downy birds were upset about it. They kept coming and I kept looking for the one that I bought a week before then. I did find the new one and they were on it like bees to flowers once I had put it out. It is funny how they drop the prices on suet a whole twenty cents during the winter.
I officially have a collection started of nutcrackers now as my wife bought me a second one for Christmas. Button is sitting close by to me here also. The painting in the background is one of Duluth. I did it many years ago. We were at the harbor point and looking back to the hills behind the old part of Duluth. I should try to photograph it and share it sometime but taking photos of glassed artworks is difficult.
We watched the first of the Star Wars movies on the dvd laying there on the arm of the loveseat. The first movie was made in 1977. That was a long time ago and far, far away from now. It was interesting to revisit that movie and have the memory banks pull out things that I had seen years ago.
I will look at this design of Winnie and be reminded of our grandson. In many ways he is a lot like Winnie with his fun attitude and a smile always on his face.
Our weather doesn't promise to be too good in the next couple of days. More large amounts of snow by Monday. We are going out for a quick trip to the Wallymart to pick up essentials and will come home for another nice quiet day. I hope all are well out there and thanks for stopping by today.
