Dying??

I know I am older……

heck, you can even call me old……

yesterday I got a series of phone calls that have me wondering if someone else knows more than i do about me…..

10am  call selling estate planning services

noonish  call selling nursing home insurance

3pm  call selling funeral services

I gave up and quit answering the phone yesterday!

And FYI…. I dont have time to die.  I have too much dyeing and sewing and quilting to do!

And I need to see more birds….

like this woodpecker

And this bird that I have been watching for several days.  I dont know what it is.  He is VERY fast…. and he always knows if the camera is directed at him and flies away.  Ah, but I finally got him…… patience works!

    I don’t answer my phone. People who know me have my cellphone number, others can leave a message. It might be fun playing along with these guys for a while, getting them aroused on the prospect, bit who has time for this.

    Great bird pics! Much better to use your time (and patience) getting a picture of the nuthatch than listening to sales pitches. I usually just lay the phone down and walk away.

    I love seeing your birds. Dan made me take down all my bird feeders… they were attracting mice and a few of their bigger cousins. YUK!
