    I've never seen so few birds here in town in the past as I have this year. I've still not had a single bird around the thistle seed sock. And since I was not having any birds around the other feeder, I thought maybe it was because it wasn't clean enough. So I emptied it, thoroughly washed it, let it dry a couple of days, then put it back out with fresh seed. Two days I've seen just a couple of doves on the ground under the feeder, and I've seen 2 birds, and one squirrel at the feeder in the past week. I don't know what's happened.

    Don, I wish I would have known that, was at the Lake Worth TX TSC today..where was the coupon? or is it a mail in kinda deal?

    Bird , I dont know why you dont have birds? I can fill my sock and have finches on it within 5 minutes??! I have 4-5 pair of cardinals and misc. other birds that use the big feeder. I also have the Bluebirds back again, building the nest in the box now.

    Jim's TLB at 20k would have killed those trees!.. I considered a friend that runs a dozer, but he has a minimum that would have been twice what I ended up pay'n, but he'd have had it done in less than an hourr, guy's good.
    Dennis,
    That is what I thought until I finished out my new pond last summer with water and mud in the bottom. My foot left a deeper print than the tracks! That MTL was over 10,000 pounds.
    As to Jim's New Holland..............I heard his Mom told him he can't cross the street with it!
    hugs, Brandi

    I'd like to know about that coupon, too. I figured I'd buy more seed at TSC if any birds ever show up around here. It's weird and I don't know why we don't have the birds here. Normally, you could walk outside, see birds on the power lines, hear birds in the trees, as well a at our feeder and birdbath, but not this year so far. I was kind of taken by surprise a couple of days ago when I went outside and actually heard one mockingbird, but only that one time.

    Someone nearby has a licensed (hopefully) full auto machine gun or rifle.

    Just got back from our 3rd fire in nine days, this is starting to remind me of work.
    The coupon came on a post card from TSC. Actually two coupons on the post card. one was 10% off entire purchase and the other for a free tube feeder (walk out with the feeder) with any bird seed. If you order on-line the 10% off promo code is Q1SD1304C and the bird feeder has no code just the hard coupon. Offers are good till 3-10.

    No! No! No! That's not what she said. She said she better not catch me across the street with that hoe. . . backhoe of course.

    And with that ladies and gentlemen, I'll bid you goodbye before I get banned from TBN. Honestly, Brandi, you set that up so perfectly that I just could not resist.

    Looks like the wind is finally laying down and today looks like a good day for a road trip. I've got to run over to Hughes Springs this morning to pick up some Catfish for our Fish Frys at church for the next 3 weeks. I'll be glad when this Lent thing is over. But a Road Trip on a pretty day is always is something to look forward to.
