Re: Hello......again

Hey James, I figured you would remember me :wink: nice to hear from you. I was thinking about you the other day. I had your house down working on it (thanks again) The perch had gotten loose and would flop from side to side when a bird would land. I’ve got it good and stable now though. How are you ...

Re: I'm sorry it's been so long

I'm sorry it's been so long

Hi all I can't tell you how much I've missed being here and talking to you guy's and gals. Been a tough time around here! I'm still trying to sell my other house with no luck at all. My lovely wife took a fall at work last June and broke her leg and her knee. She was allowed NO ground contact at all...

Thanks Deb & Matt,
My new looker showed up again this morning with another in tow, but that one was having nothing to do with it. He's just sitting out there as we speak looking and waiting (just like me) :P

Re: Loosing my colony

Thank you all so much for your kind words of encouragement. I know it's just a matter of time before I have a colony again. I mounted my gourd rack sleeve today and can't wait to see the gourds ready once again. I noticed on my way home that a neighbor who has been trying for years to attract martin...

Not sure when I'll get it back up, I've been working day and night remodeling the new home, and now I have to fix the house I'm i...
