pet buddy

I have given up on the hummingbirds because I haven’ seen any and the level of the red colored nectar has not gone down in the hummingbird feeder. I have moved the humming bird feeder to a different location and put this bird feeder called Pet Buddy in its place. There are lots of red cardinals around the property and perhaps I will get to see them at the feeder. I am worried that the cardinals are good sized birds and I wonder if they will have any trouble feeding at the feeder. There are also finches in the area and thanks to the numerous squirrels I am sure that the bird food will not go to waste. But if the feeder fails to attract birds, it may just be simpler to go to Michael’s, the arts and crafts store, and buy a couple of those realistic fake birds (oxymoron?) and tie them to the feeder with string. This is Saturday which is big breakfast day and Mary is going to make fried eggs, bacon, and blueberry doughnuts. The blueberry doughnuts are made from blueberry muffin mix which makes for guilt free doughnuts. She puts the blueberry batter into a doughnut pan so that they come out looking like doughnuts. Hot doughnuts with breakfast. Now isn’t that a treat. Today we will be going to the library to check out some more DVD’s. I have also ordered Lords of War starring Nicholas Cage from the library for home delivery. It will be coming from the main library in downtown Orlando. That main library is absolutely huge and has anything and everything a person could want. They even have a restaurant inside the library where you can get something to eat and drink. How’s that for a library. Gotta go, pretty soon it will be blueberry donut (muffin) time. Have a yummy day like I am about to have. Lew

Sounds like a great breakfast. We had cereal with blueberries and banana pieces on it. We will be have a little dog come visit us next week while the owner goes on a short vacation. When he comes back, he plans to get a new puppy. I am glad you are having better luck with the bird feeder. I think you will know if and when a hummingbird shows up. The one here which I haven't seen for a while liked the orange honeysuckle, so maybe you would have to plant some orange honeysuckle to attract the bird.
