Final Friday Feature, Nature and Feline Friday

First of all I'd like to wish our hostess YAM-Aunty a very happy birthday...

 and to visit YAM's blog

On March 1, 2024 I posted about our new and improved landscaping around our mail box

Beloiw is what happened sometime after 2pm on a Tuesday March 12th
someone played havoc with our mailbox
No clue who they didnot stop.  We have a cul de sac text group we all suspect the city trash truck. Tuesday is trash day  they turn the corner like their tails  on fire.  Big and noisy all 
Didn’t knock the post over (it is in cement)or run up on the curb
To say we were MAD would be an understatement but since this is a famiy show I'll JUST SAY M A D X 1,000,000
We used a bungee cord and tape to secure it.  

 It was an ordeal to get the wooden brace off below.  We really did use every tool in Bryan's tool box to get that brace off.  We are pretty sure the wooden brace was STEEL disguised in wood.
 It was secured  into post from inside with screws and nails.

Thankfully the post was not damaged. It was set in cement ten years ago. No way we could have gotten it out of the ground.
Bryan ordered  a new mail box and steel brace for the post. They arrived the end of March.
 He repainted post We spent most of the first weekend in April taking it apart the old brack and getting new brace secured. 
There is still some touch up painting to do. 


After the post was up and painted....dag blasted birds (I think the Trout Talking Tabbies will like this) decided to use the gold dome as their loo seat.  Their poooop ran all down the side.  They now know I am the smartest bird on the block.
We live on the corner and have a nice breeze.  I bought a whirlygig.  Attached it low enough that it whirls in their face and it is shiny birds don't like shiny. No a trace of poooop since I installed my mailbox whirlygig.

I hope this is the end of the mailbox saga

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #162


 Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy 


Here is our challenge for today

My car was in the shop
My brain said no worries
Take the train it will drop you just a hop
from your work stop.
Eagerly I waited for the train...
I heard it coming but turns out 
Bummer I was at the
the Polar Express stop

Happy Tuesday and Reminder FFF

Thank you to our 

Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus   

I added a few extra enhancements.  Do you see the Diva?

I tried PiZap AI again you just type in a description of what you want.

First I asked for a humming bird sipping nectar from a feeder
It created a beautiful image but I needed to be more specific in my request.
I am not quick enough to snap  one of these little jewels at my feeder.

Second request to  AI for a 
ruby throated humming bird sipping nectar from a red feeder

This is the exact hb feeder I have. It is a ruby throated humming bird which is the only one we have in NC.  So in my mind's eye, this is the photo I'd love to snap.

Third request
 Senior lady with short brown hair wearing red glasses snapping a photo of a ruby throated hummingbird

AI did a wonderful job of guessing my hair style this is exactly correct.
