Rain ~ Forecast ~ Geese/Turkeys ~ NFL ~ Hummingbirds ~ Roy Kaplan ~ Deer Buffet ~ Golden Globe Crap

Good 33º drizzly morning. In the middle of the night the rain started coming down hard. 3:30am I heard the wind and it was crazy loud! Scary. Now there are patches of melted snow. Here's what we are in for:

Yesterday the rain finally started after it warmed to 35º. Drizzled and drizzled.... and was terminally gloomy!

.... Bruiser and Dude kept watch from the porch...

Up on the hill the geese had gathered. (why don't they head south????)

They finally flew off and the turkeys took over that spot...

Yesterday's NFL games:
                                                   YEAH Aaron Rogers and the Packers!!!!

I was discussing the frozen - thawed hummingbird feeders with my pal Trish and here is the information on Anna's Hummingbirds who do not migrate from here in the winter....

I read on FB that an old friend, Roy Kaplan, had passed away from pancreatic cancer on January 4th. in Sarasota Florida. A loss. A great guy!

He was a Reserve Deputy and he, his wife Cookie, Jerry, and I became good friends. He retired and moved to Florida in 2000. RIP Roy!!!  

Cookie's dad, George Barrie owned Fabergé and through Roy and Cookie I got a job with Fabergé and I worked for them as a sales rep. That is where I met Farrah Fawcett, José Eber, and Cary Grant.

We represented Farrah's line of hair products and José's. Cary on the other hand was divorced from Diane Canon and she was traveling a lot and it was difficult for him to go commercial air to visit his daughter, so George Barrie told Grant if he would represent Fabergé he would let him take his private jet anywhere anytime... all he had to do was go to the local Wal-Mart and do a promotion and take pictures with the managers.

My friend Adele shared this with me on FB.... she suggested I set up a buffet for my critters!
                                            They would LOVE it!!!!

Later dinner, chair, wine, TV. I watched "some" of the Golden Globes. WASTE OF TIME. I had recorded it so I could skim through and all those Hollyweirdos did was pat themselves on the back and make disparaging remarks about Republicans and Trump. What a bunch of CRAP!!!! Jimmy "Felon" (arrogant, self-loved, stupid comedian!) was the worst along with Meril Streep! Adam Henrys!!! ENTERTAIN us, don't give us your political views. Bunch of Dem Hill-Liary crybabies!!!!!  

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

Interesting about Anna's hummers. It says they are very territorial. Our bully bird must be one of those. :( I'd like to choke him!

You lucky gal to have met and had photos with those folks. I think that job was the most interesting you had out of all your adventures.

Love the little buffet table for the critters. :)

Your feelings about the Golden Globes are the same as mine. As I said in my posts, most of the gowns were outrageous! I think those gals want to see who can show the most boob! Most all of them are boobs anyway! :)

Yes, T, that job was a lot of fun. And I got a brand new car every two years too, paid for by the company!!! And trips to Acapulco and Bahamas for sales meetings, all paid for and Jerry too!!!

I read an article re the gowns at the GG last night. The ones they "fashion idiots" liked the best were the ugliest. The ones they liked the least were the nicest!!! xo

The Union of American Wildlife is publishing a guide to the top 10 buffets in America- and your property made the list.

Most geese still migrate, but not all. Part of the reason has to do with conservation efforts during a population decline. Goslings of eggs hatched south of the border have lost their instinct to fly so far.
