    They might have found some shelter somewhere better than what you have….. I had 8 in the yard yesterday and that was a first for me for ages….

    They stay just down from the house in the woodsy areas…..but have been coming up to eat now…

    Yours will be back…….. it took mine awhile… I had to walk down to the woods to see them…

    Wow $1000…that was a lot… those sensors arent that expensive and I know where both of them go on the vehicle…. my best buddy from work does our maintenance work for us and even big stuff… I just texted him and he said it shouldn’t have been over $500 to $550  at the most.. batteries are you most expensive at $100 each now and plugs and wires would have been around $60….. I think you should ask for some of your money back … LOLOLOLOL  but if you are satisfied thats all that counts.

    honestly I think dealers are rip-offs…. they have a book that says how much they should charge for each thing they do……….even though they can do two at one time…….. thats why we found a mechanic who is a friend …and tells us like it is….

    I just had work done on my van… new brakes all the way around, 4 new rotors, 2 new front tires, (bad from being unaligned) an alignment  on all four wheels as its an all-wheel drive,  with labor , and got it  all for $750.

    My ex was a mechanic and I helped him work on a lot of vehicles…. I learned quick how the dealers rip off people….

    Well back from my lunch and glad to be home…. It is beautiful and so sunny out but the wind chill is like 10 degrees… High winds today they say….well I believe it…

    Had a good lunch, except I had breakfast….This restaurant is great .. If you order two eggs scrambled you get three, if you order 2 pieces of bacon you get 3, if you order toast you get two……..and the plate was heaping with hash browns…. oh and a nice slice of fresh fruit… and I had an raspberry tea…. all for under $7.00…makes a nice filling meal.

    We got my gf’s camera out and going… she learns fast… then we went uptown , which is the county seat and took some pics…..not a lot as it was so cold and the winds whistling down through town was almost as bad as out here in the country.

    I stopped at the little grocery where my friend lives as they are the only ones that carry our favorite potato chips, Ballreich…. only made in Ohio… but they do ship some to Indiana…thank goodness…There are nothing like them… I savor each one and only eat a few every now and then to make them last….LOLOL but when you find something you like you might as well enjoy it….right?

    Posy, I hope your hubby is doing better….and his eye is healing like it should….

    Well I think I will have to go out and fill the feeders as they are totally empty… got to get bundled up to do that though..

    Have a good afternoon..

    I always get the shot.. especially when I was working and everyone came in with sick kids or they themselves were sick… It doesnt keep you from getting it, it just keeps you from getting it so bad.

    Dr. gave hubby the pneumonia one too……. said since he is diabetic and works in a cold factory he should have it..

    Dr. says it take up to 4 weeks to get into your system , so I am glad your hubby is going for his now…especially if you are going on a cruise…

    Good morning Posy….and everyone who stops by.

    Its cold and very windy here right now… Wind is really shaking the bird feeders all around.  I know this morning I had over 100 cowbirds under the feeders… I am not filling them today, maybe they will go away.. Its hard not to keep them filled with the chickadees needing to eat everyday to keep their body heat up…but I have to get rid of those cowbirds and starlings.

    Leaving here in a about an hour. Going to meet one of the girls from work for lunch. She got a new camera for Christmas and I am going to do some teaching….I hope its an easy camera for me to learn on too . LOLOL

    I am taking my new camera with me in case her ‘s is about like mine…It will be easier that way, for me at least.

    Well no swans this morning. The lake is frozen over.  They say next week the temps are supposed to be in the 40′s with rain, so maybe they will be back.  I bought a 40lb bag yesterday of corn for them…dang it…

    Well I will check back after my lunch…. have a good morning everyone.

    OH great pics everyone….. I have my swans from this morning……. only a small hole on the lake still not frozen, but they left this afternoon so I bet it will be frozen over by morning……wherever they stayed at night they kept it open by diving and swimming in it.

    Very windy here too…….. I am glad you  made it there and back and the doggies are ok….

    Good morning Posy and all who stop by.

    My goodness it is bone chilling out there today.. I went out and fed the birds right away as the swans were sitting in the open water at the end of the dock. They sure gobbled down their crackers and corn.

    I am going to the farm this morning while hubby is sleeping.  Then going to get more corn for the swans. I am out… and as long as they are here in this cold I figure then need the energy.

    Remember our outside kitty disappeared? Well we now have a mother cat and two half grown kittens.  They are beautiful. Long haired almost like angora’s. Mom is very friendly but we can’t get near the kittens yet.  I am going to have to try and catch them and take them to the shelter.  I can’t feed three more, not again, especially during the winter as its so hard to keep them fresh water.  I gave my electric waterer to my son for his birds.  I have a tall waterer only for the birds, not ground feeding animals.

    I have been feeding the kitties as I will never let them starve, but I sure didnt want to feed 3 !!!!

    The birds are back in force. I had over 55 cowbirds this morning. I kept chasing them off… They come in and just take over. And they are pigs ….LOLOL

    Beautiful Marine niece of ours went back yesterday.. I am so proud of her…She has 3 more years in the corp, then hopefully she decides to make it a career….

    Very cloudy and overcast here today, maybe some light snow they just said on weather …. that would be good to cover up all the yuck on the ground under the feeders  LOLOL

    Posy, I am so glad hubbies eye is coming along so good.. I bet he is happy to be driving again…Can he walk the dog?

    Well got to run. Want to get things done before hubby gets up…He worked 12 hours last night and has to work 10 tonight…

    Take care, be back later on

    Stef, its best not to even comment on the nasty things or people… That way they can’t get to you…

    Just enjoy what you have found and make each day a new and better one… Good luck.

    Good morning, my what stunning pictures today so far………… I love them all………..

    Sparrow, if ever you want to find a new  home for those ornaments I would gladly take them off your hands… I collect them !!!!!!! Those you found are just wonderful….. Great pics of them

     I had to be outside already this very cold morning, as the swans were sitting in the only open water at then end of our dock… I HAD to feed them of course. They sleep in one spot to keep the water from freezing… I don’t think they will be here too much longer if it freezes deeper.
