First of all who told me off.......this little fella did:
Why, because I decided to fill the bird feeder when he wanted to feed. I mean he wouldn't shut up while I was filling the feeder, and as I said to him, he would get a better meal if he left me alone for a few minutes, as I was filling up the feeder with a variety of seeds; but on and on he went.
On Sunday we had to go to a Funeral Visitation (a Funeral Visitation, in the United States and Canada, a funeral custom where a mourner visits the deceased person's family and views the body lying in the casket, either at a funeral home or church. ) It was for one of dh's friends mother who had just passed away. She was the double of my Nana when she died, quite eerie.
We had to go past Holland Marsh and I saw a couple of signs for #2 Carrots ideal for Deer, Cattle and something else, can't remember what the something else was. So me and dh were discussing the fact that we didn't know what the difference was between a #1 carrot and a #2 carrot. On the way back, I remembered I needed some carrots so we called in at a farmer's market at Holland Marsh, and in there was these huge bags of carrots. Too many for us, so I picked up a 10lb bag for $3.49. Anyhow, I asked the lady what was #2 carrot and she said they were carrots that got broken in the washing machine's and were not good enough for the main grocery stores. I asked how much the bag's in the store were and she said $5, and the bags weighed between 40 to 50lbs each. Bargain or what? However I just couldn't see me and dh ploughing through a 40 lb bag of carrots before becoming utterly and totally sick of carrots. By the way, does anyone know if there are #3 carrots?
Although this is a crappy photo, here is what they look like:
I also took this photo as I couldn't get over how much they were charging for bunches of greenery, and people were buying them!!
Now I am not a big fan of those fashion magazine, like Vogue or Flaire. Anyhow, dd sent some magazines up to me via ds, and one of them was Vanity Fair, which I would never purchase in a month of Sunday's. That was until now. It was the September '09 edition and boy was it interesting, I read a very interesting but scathing post on Ruth Madoff. They had articles on Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson and lots of other interesting articles. I must remember to ask dd to keep anymore she gets. It turns out the people who lived in the condo before them didn't bother to cancel their magazine subscription and never left a forwarding address. They send all over mail back to sender, but keep the magazines!!!
