Squirrels on the ground and in the air

Bird Feeder and friendly Squirrel

There are two exciting additions to the back yard. The first, and most interesting, is the new bird feeder we added. We wanted to attract some bigger birds, so decided too add a second feeder with Sunflower Seeds as primary food. This feeder also has cages for suet, which also seem popular. Unlike in Texas, suet doesn't melt here! Of course, not more than 2 hours after the feeder went up we had our first squirrel. You have to understand, this is the first time I have seen a squirrel in our yard! It remains to be seen if he will jump up on the feeder, so far he has chosen to eat from the ground.

House Before

Roof Oops

Secondly, the workmen finally showed up to remedy the damage from Ernest when the Tree fell on the house. We've been looking at plastic for about three months now. So, two guys with ladders and shingles showed up on Friday and hammered and jabbered away for about two hours. The next day the suppervisor showed up and took a look at their work and vetoed the job. Seems the rows are out of line. Yep, it is always a comedy here when we have workmen!
