Saturday Photo Hunt

SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT: 

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO FIND THE LIST OF SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT WORDS
TODAY'S WORD IS

N E S T:  a place used by an animal for rearing its young

Oh is mom happy about today's word...
we'd like to show you our 


 Eastern Bluebird House and Nest(ing) cup
The male bluebird builds the nest  in the cup.
We don't know if he would build w/o it...
because we always use the cups.
The bluebird house is made with a side opening, shown below, so nosy humans can peep in there to check the nest for eggs.  
Once the eggs are hatched MOM NEVER opens
the side door.

Once many years ago mom opened the side to check for eggs...
lo and behold the Mrs. BB was in the house..when mom open the side door Mrs. BB almost flew into mom's hair.....SO now
before Mom opens the side door she knocks first.  If Mrs. BB
is there she flies out the front hole.  Usually we get at least one or two broods of baby BB in the spring!  And March is the month Mr. BB starts looking for the perfect real estate for Mrs. BB.
She can be a little picky.  We have full bird feeders and BB pellets 
near by,a bird bath, and shrubs close by so she can get a break from the baby BB but keep an eye on the house.

Tuesday Tale: They say Necessity is the .....

Mother of invention 
FYI this TRUE TALE is proof positive.
I promise it is the last post I'll show of snow
BUT trust me it is gonna tickle your funny bone.
Often when the peeps leave I take up my sentry post from the guest bed this window looks
out onto the driveway.

 During the last few weeks of February we had sleet, snow,
ice and freezing temperatures all with in a few days of each other. All this made our driveway and front yard nearly impassable!!!
That is unless you are very clever...and my peeps are.
This picture shows very little white stuff but what you see is
ice and it is solid.  Mom and Dad needed to go to buy groceries...
they had to get to Gracie at the bottom of the driveway.
But they can't ice skate so they did the next best thing
they used their noggins to think of a safe way down
Dad had already fallen on the ice earlier.
They used a pitch fork and a golf umbrella as their anchors to walk down through the ice to the grass. Before they left
Mom thought to herself... how will we get the groceries back up to the porch.

Easy peasy...they took to laundry baskets and two bungee cords
to the car when they left.  
 When they got back home with the groceries they loaded the
groceries in the baskets and pulled them up the hill with the 
bungee cords in one hand and the pitchfork and the golf umbrella in the other hand
Nobody fell...they got the groceries in the house
FRIENDS I'M SORRY TO SAY I DID NOT GET ACTUAL PICTURES...I HAVE BEEN HOPING ONE OF THE NEIGHBORS DID AND WOULD OFFER TO SHARE BUT TO DATE
NO ACTUAL PICTURES....TRUST ME THOUGH IT WAS A VERY FUNNY SIGHT!!
