Scott, And Mary.
I just wanted to take the time and thank these special people who have supported me through the years with my purple martins.
Matt Fendley, Scott Dyess, Steve Kroenke, Connie St Romain, Linda Reynolds, Tony (Gobbler ), Mary (Mama Bruff), Guy Gauthier, Louise Chambers.
It might have been a phone call when I was having a bad year, responding to a private message or email I sent, hepling me find parts I needed, a desperate cry for immediate help "what do I do ?" or coming to my house to help me out.
I appreciate all of you for taking the time to help me. You could not ask for a better group of people to be associated with.
Guy a special thank you to you for helping me today.
May God bless each and every one of you abundantly, and send plenty purple martins your way,
Yvonne

Not a problem whatsoever Yvonne. Enjoyed seeing your site and I picked up a few tips (lagniappe), especially about checking multiple gourds for eggs from the same female. That stuck. Will touch base with you later in the week to finish the job so you can get after those sparrows!!
