A Recliner, Fireplace, and a Snowstorm!

Definitely a lull in the action right now especially if your “not” a skier or snowmobiller!  You can only rabbit or squirrel hunt so much in the wind and blowing snow.  I guess that’s why ancient man invented the “fireplace!”  So glad modern man invented the LaZboy!  During a time such as this the cozy warm hearth of a crackling fire are comforting for the soul.  It harkens to so many campfires and bonfires, from years past, and the pleasantness that goes with the glowing embers and the smell of seasoned pine or oak!  We are in the midst of a Michigan snow storm right now, and kicking back in my recliner while the logs snap, crackle, and pop is a pleasant way to enjoy the afternoon.

If you want to ratchet up the excitement level some you can put some bird seed on the back porch and watch the hungry visitors “chow” down!  Actually we have not seen hide nor hair (feather) of any birds for many weeks.  We were beginning to believe they all went South for the winter.  We checked the bird feeder and found it was froze up.  My wife then put two old shoe boxes on the back deck and filled them with bird seed.  Within a matter of minutes our deck was filled with happy/quarreling birds!  We were able to identify junko’s, nuthatches, canary’s, cardinal’s, and morning doves.  They seemed to be quite overjoyed at this relief in the middle of a winter storm!  I know I have enjoyed their antics as they joust for each valuable seed!

Please more tea and crumpets dear!

Mike
