My big excitement... I had to make an emergency run to town.. to the farm and garden store.. I had completely run out of suet cakes for my feathered friends. When I got there what I usually buy was not on the shelf.. so I made a comment about it.. one of the very nice fellows who work there lead me back to the appropriate shelving area.. when I explained what I was looking for, which was not on the shelf. He said he would look out in the warehouse... he came back with two packages and I snapped them both up.. Of COURSE. When I got home the first thing I did was fill the two feeders. By the time I had gotten into the house to look out the window, what, maybe all of 2 minutes later.... I had a Hairy woodpecker and two Downy woodpeckers bellying up to the bar for their FAT feed. I was so excited that I ended up calling the store to tell them how happy I was and how happy the birds were that I had shopped for them today.
I know it is rather silly, but being a single old lady I do rather enjoy my bird friends that enjoy coming to my little bird restaurant for sunflower seeds and suet cakes. And since I have no one else to share this with... I called the store,,, and now I am sharing it with you.
I usually find it hard to share myself with others. Partly from lack of practice, but mostly because I really don't think anyone would want to listen to anything that I have to say. They would rather that I listen to what they have to say... and I am quite, actually VERY, good at listening.. probably should have been a professional listener... I suppose I could go back to school to earn whatever degree would be necessary... but I won't. Most of the people I know who need to be listened to, well they couldn't afford to hire a listener, and, they are not troubled, just alone. It is very hard when you outlive your spouse, and your friends, and your family. The older you get the harder it is to make new friends. And sometimes you are not sure you want to make that much of an investment, the investment it takes to make new friends.
Sorry, I got to rambling on. Have a good evening, a better week, and a great life.. and may your life be a long life.
