Guess who came for lunch?

These were all taken within a space of about 10 minutes at lunch time today
This is a female downy woodpecker
I'm guessing this is her hubby
This is a red bellied woodpecker.....this guy is very shy & the most difficult to get pictures of....he always goes to the other side of the suet so I can't get a full shot of him.
There were several cardinals around
All this needs is some snow on the branches
Then the "guest of honor" showed up.....a pileated woodpecker
He hung about on the tree for a while
Then when he "dove" in for lunch went to the other side of the feeder.......I think they are the coolest of the woodpecker family!


  1. I had a pigeon in the garden. end of story.

    That woodpecker is beautiful

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
