Next to my grandchildern this is one of the coolest pictures I have taken. It could be clearer, it could be centered better,but I'll take what I can get. A couple of weeks ago I bought a new Hummingbird feeder on clearence at Menards. I have tried to attract them before with no luck, but for $4 I thought what the heck. I already had the nectar so out it went,the first week nothing.Then wowza off and on all through the day . I was determined to get a picture so when I would see him/her I would try and sneek out into the yard,well yesterday I got one.
Then last night I thought we were going to have an emergancy. We had the garage door open loading for WHAT CHEER ( we leave 1week from today).And zoom a streak of green flew past my head and into the garage,I freaked cause I didn't know how in the world we were going to get him out.He flew around in there for several minutes, I got away from the door,and he flew further in and landed on a stool . My husband went towards the back and out he came thank god.
While watching today I saw that there is a pair, omg how cool is that.I will keep tring to get better pictures,What beautiful little creatures........

Went to an auction this past Sat in Vinton , first one I've gone to in quite awhile.There were some really cool things from a time long gone.
This little drum was in pretty good shape ,but you can tell some little kid sure enjoyed it.
Could not believe we got this whole stack of seed sacks in one lot.Most of them are clean and not real faded,in the trailer they go off to What Cheer.That is in less than 2 weeks ya know.
I saved what I think is the best thing we bought for the end. This trike is in fantastic shape,Mike & Frank from Pickers would have a fit .The seat is leather ,the tires are rubber,over all the paint is in good shape.Some one really loved this trike and took good care of it all these years.It will be traveling to What Cheer with us .I hope it finds a home with someone who will love it
