Saturday Morning Coffee #105

We've still got that bird feeder hanging outside the kitchen window.

We haven't seen the chipmunks trying to get at it lately. As a matter of fact, we haven't seen much of the chipmunks at all this spring. Maybe the neighbor's cat finally got lucky. I'd be surprised though, the neighbor's cat is kind of a lazy fat-ass. He'll sit on the far side of the yard, staring at the bird feeder, until the Blue Jays run his ass off.

So we pulled the turtle-back off Mrs B's Titan. We put it on the back deck until we can figure out what to do with it. Just a couple days ago, we watched through the kitchen window while some little brown bird stared at his reflection in the smoked glass on the side of the turtle-back. Every few seconds he would get angry at that other bird he was staring down and charge at him and give him a furious pecking. He would then back off and examine his opponent for injuries, waiting for him to give up and fly away. The other bird would simply stare back at him with equal defiance. After a few more seconds of this, he would charge in and do battle again.

Mrs B - Honey, come look at this.
Thumpscrabble
Mrs B - What the hell is that bird doing?
Thumpscrabble
MSgt B - Looks like he's defending his territory.
Thumpscrabble
Mrs B - Not too bright, is he?
Thumpscrabble
MSgt B - Nope...and he doesn't feel sorry for himself.**
Tumpscrabble
MSgt B - Now you know where the term "birdbrain" comes from....birdbrain.
Thumpscrabble
Mrs B - Did you just call me a birdbrain?
Thumpscrabble
MSgt B - Yup.

This is where the meaningless discussion degenerated into the usual kitchen-wrestling. With her trying to splash me with dishwater, and me trying to grab some boobie.

Friday!

Still lots of work to do today, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
