Do you guys happen to remember when I told you that something was killing our pigeons -maybe last Spring??? Well , the same thing started happening 3 nights ago,but this morning at 3AM DH went out to feed the stove and as he looked up into the pigeon pen with his flashlight - there was a OWL! He called it a screech owl because it was small and it ran back to the space in the chain link fence that it traveled through and took off. I was AMAZED! This afternoon I took some small mesh fencing and ran it around the bottom of the pen and will see how that does??? :)
DH had tried to shoot it last night but missed all 3 times. I told him that I did not want to kill it because I love owls. That I only wanted to know what it was to satisfy my curiosity and to figure out how to outsmart it. The little owl is just doing his job of hunting and I know food is scare in all this snow. He only ate the heads of his victims?I told him IF it comes down to it again I would move the pigeons back to the wood pen until I could get the money to get some poultry wire to run around the chain link fence.
I did get to finish my new shirt and I am so glad I intended this one to be mine , because that naughty angel was back playing her pranks on me while Maria had her head turned. The very first stitch punched a big hole in the shirt front and it kept breaking threads and occasionally punching holes in the design. It was war all the way and then when I sewed the pieces together even that needle cut a couple of holes in the project.
I was sooo glad to get it finished today! Even with the boo-boos I can wear it in the house working. I really need another long sleeve shirt because the other two I had made for me are getting thread bare because I wash and wear and wash and wear.
My oldest son has lots of computer problems because of all the kids in his house and seems like he reformattes it every 6 months or so. I know I should do one of these before they both kick the bucket on me-but it is such a pain in the butt. :)
Love to all! :)
