~ Now rain... ~ Squirrel ~ Turkeys ~ Cherry Pie ~

Good 33º foggy raining morning.
Yesterday was rather boring. Snowed for a while
Maggie got snow flakes on her ..   
then rained, sun came out, then went away.
Warmed to a tropical 48º. Mr. Squirrel was showing
off his acrobatics on the birdseed feeder...
Must be ready for the turkey mating season.
The fellas are out in numbers with their feathers at the
ready to show off and their crunchles are turning blue
and their wattles are dark red and hanging down. That
snood seems to get in the way when they want to eat.  
All to lure in the unsuspecting female.
Mmmm mmmm mmm....
My yard was full of the Toms and hens yesterday...

has broken. The valve thingy and the stopper thingy and
there is water gushing into the tank.

man to come fix it! Grrrr...
