Jealousy

There I sat, sipping a refreshing beverage at Spork's sister's house this past Sunday, when I happened to look out the window and see a hummingbird on the feeder. A hummingbird. In freakin' February. I, Ellie May, friend to all things furry or feathered, don't have any hummingbirds. But Spork's sister has hummingbirds. How can this be? It's not fair! I cry fowl.




P.S. Please excuse the poor picture quality. I only had Spork's phone to use as a camera.

It seems that the hummingbirds are here early this year. On Sunday I saw one fly from my backyard bushes and light in a tree. And, I don't have my feeder up yet, either. Of course, it's not a good idea to keep a feeder out after about October because the little birdies will stay around as long as there is something to eat, but, then they will probably freeze when it gets real cold.

Sounds like your sister-in-law just has a better knack with the flora and fauna than you do, sweetie!

Anonymous, you might be right, but it's hard to admit that. Especially since she's always saying mean things to me and then tacking "sweetie" onto it, as if that makes it nice. ;)

I put my hummingbird feeder up this evening. I worry the scouts will come in and have no fuel to keep warm in our wonderful, unpredictable East Texas weather.
