Finally the county is going to apply the dust control on the gravel road that goes right by our house — and screened porch. The grader came by first to prepare the area which really should have been done in May.
A reader also asked about the purple Martin house above the flag. We have only one nesting pair this year because the sparrows build nests in the house so fast. The PM “scouts” supposedly come in March to see if the nest is available and since we still have winter, I’m not sure what they think. They have a very distinctive song and I know immediately when they arrive in May/June. Our season is short – they leave in August which means there’s not much time to raise a family. They look for a wire close to the house where they can sit as well as a source of water (our pond) and a nesting house in an open area, not among trees where predators can rob their nest. I wish I were an expert and could spend more time learning about these birds as they are fascinating!
Wasn’t that game a nail biter last night? Congratulations to the Cleveland Cavaliers!
Camber went home last night about 10 pm and Eric was already back to work at 5:45 this morning! That young man has his act together – I believe that sounded a bit like bragging, didn’t it? Ha!
