Waltonville News

Bet you think I must be bored and have nothing else to do, to have found me much sooner than expected, since I can’t, or more like, won’t go outside. Of course not!

I have been bird watching from my kitchen window and have seen at least 14 different species, and kid watching, crafting, baking, eating way too much, and best of all talking! Not to Ben! He never listens anyway, but by golly, when he talks, you listen! He’s like the bull in the Merrill Lynch commercial, “When the Bull talks, people listen!” Well, he’s my bull! Stubborn like one too!

If you missed my last article, told you I would update you on my buzzard neighbor’s comings and goings. Well, they flew the “coop” about a week after I wrote you. As you knew, I was quite concerned about them not having any food. I told Ben that I had some chicken skins I thought may help in this time need, and how about taking them to the tower for me. He then informed me that they had left! Thank goodness! Hope they have better luck in the south. But I did spot a loner one day, and I thought he may be the one left behind to hold down the fort till they return. Wonder how they picked the chosen one, by drawing the shortest feather? HA! HA!

Since it has been so, so cold outside, the hot tub has been begging me to come outside to get inside. But with my imagination going wild with the thought of what if I stepped out on the concrete with my wet feet and get stuck, just like the boy from the Christmas Story who had put his wet tongue to the flag pole! Besides looking like a Popsicle to be made! Na! Think I’ll wait for at least the 20’s!
