The birdfeeder, despite being filled with our own personal deadly poison, has proved to be a great hit. Today, we’ve had visits from a squirrel, a gentleman and lady cardinal, a junko, and several chickadees. When my mother rang, I let E1 answer the phone.
“Grandma! We’ve had a squirrel! And a cardinal! And a chipmunk! And a chickadee-dee-dee!”
Her sister ran up and grabbed the phone out of her hands. “Bird!” she yelled into it, and then continued, “Squrrrrl!… Dee-dee!… Elephant!”
Now, see… I never spotted that elephant…! I’ll have to watch this one. Before you know it, she’ll be seeing ostriches, just like her daddy.
