I hope you are good sports ...

First off, I must say, I'm sorry. Shortly before I wrote my last post, I was watching the news with DH - well it was on and I was in the living room to talk to him, anyway. I don't like to be political, it's not me, but Mr. Trump was on the news and the talk was about him wanting Mexico to pay for that wall. Sigh ... You guys are pretty good eggs for trying to be helpful with a cranky old lady. My sons were not so sympathetic and a friends even said, "Good luck with that!" Has there been any consideration for walls on the Canadian borders? How about mines or something in our coastal waters? You and I and the fence post know who will pay for said wall. Argh.

The good stuff - It's 5:30 and still light enough to see to walk around outside. The days are really getting longer and the weather averages have begun their slow winter temperature climb. One degree warmer for lows and two degrees warmer for daytime highs.
Promising. We almost have January kicked, but February will hold some surprises I'm sure.

We have a new bird feeder. This one holds a bunch, so DH doesn't have to go out there every day. Visitors for now have been Sparrows, Cardinals, and RW Blackbirds. A few other odd ones from time to time. I don't see that thin cable holding up any better than the other one. I cleaned the window and was promptly rewarded (or punished, you choose) by one of the birds slamming into it.

I finished watching Damages with Glenn Close and Rose Byrne, and a host of names in smaller parts. I really liked it. 5 seasons in 5 days! I should have dragged it out, but I couldn't wait to see what happened next!
 
Have a pleasant day, night or in-between!

    1. I guess it never hurts to lay up a bunch of wood for next season.
      I believe the birds like the feeder too, It's usually got food in it. Ha Ha.

  3. Yep we do know who will pay for that wall.

  4. I'm annoyed that anyone would even think to build a wall, never mind actually doing it. Is he planning on eventually fully enclosing the states, thus shutting them off from the rest of the world?
    I like the bird feeder.

  6. The next four years will be a roller coaster ride, I suspect. I am nearly afraid to watch the news these days.

    Like the bird feeder. Looks like the Cardinal is enjoying it as well. So pretty.

    1. It feels like a bad genii has been let out of the bottle.
      We have quite a few Cardinals in our area, I enjoy watching them immensely.

  7. YAY for the Mexican President for standing up to El Blowhard.

  8. Damages certainly sounds like a good series if you watched that many episodes in so short a time! 😉
    Here in Australia, we shake our heads as every day we hear of more crazy things happening in your country's political arena.
