I aint one bit surprised Budwiser,

You have the passion young man for music. I recognised  this the first time i heard you play and sing.

May it be a long and happy musical melody road for you.

Nela !

Yes you are, ya bold man.. lol
While I'm here i must say "the blues have flown already.. Ahhh.
I missed watching them this morning while having my breakfast.. Distracting the magpies obviously gave them the opportunity to
call there babies to fly.. I've been reading about some butterfly boxes for the garden.. I have a buddleia bush growing in the garden, { Stop now Nella, clatter clatter } Better known as a butterfly bush here.. That might be an interesting project.

Thanks  again for your help with the blues.

Excellent Sirs !

I would bet your best  collaboration yet. Great stuff. I was a wee bit confused when Phill started to sing as the lyrics  i was reading didnt tally with his lol Then i realized he started with a chorus.  { senior moment ]

So very well done.

Whoohoo !

Distraction i never thought of. I do have chimes and stuff hanging about.. But i was also making the mistake
of feeding the magpies what they like in my back garden.. Sooooooo as there roosting to the front of my house
i took there feeder down in the back garden.. I then went to the front of the house. Spread  there food of jumbo raisins/ dried dog food and macademia nuts all about the trees.  BINGO ! i havent seen a magpie this evening out back.. I also have some Collared Doves who are feeding happily now with some peace also.

Thanks very much for the enlightement.
Your pure magic.

How very interesting Scott. As we say here "What do you hope to be when you grow up sir ? Meaning when you finish your education.

I was awakened this morning at 6/30 by a some harsh sounding rogues.

My goodness the racket was something else. "Magpies and there young.. Theres so many of them around
i normally enjoy watching them and there cheeky behaviour.  I can only imagine there own chicks were being threatened by some cats !
i have some blue tits nesting in my garden.
There babies are due to fly in the next few days. I've been listening to the babies cheep when the parents  are approaching with food. Its so  brilliant to hear and watch the parents work so hard for there babies.

Now my concern is ! Mr and Mrs Magpie have killer instincts.  While magpies  are beautiful to look at, they will kill these blue tit chicks.  Oh, i know leave nature alone, but i would like to give these wee babies a chance to fly.
Any bird lovers on here with advice ?
These are just a few photos taken last week of the bird box.. There old wooden wine boxes, recycled into bird boxes. They have worked better then any fancy bird boxes i've purchased over the years.

blue tits feeding, I love the way they all spring up with the beaks open as if about to sing lol

I did get to play this for the neighbors who I wrote this for.  Sorry for any confusion, but I don't have a wife; just a special girl who lives with me as my wife; just not married in the eyes of the government.  This was written for the neighbors after a conversation with them.   When I played it for them, she cried and got a little emotional.  I played it around the campfire just the other night and everybody there liked it also.  Always nice to get the seal of approval from MKM and the "Old Doll".  Thanks Lena and Amy and everybody else.  A little inspired to try something else; maybe soon.

Theres your material right there for your next song ! Your Special Girl" She will be so pleased as i have been over the years when
friends and family wrote songs about me..

I look forward to  reading this project sir.

in the west of Ireland.

There were always wisps of smoke rising on them hills." Oh ! Its only someone burning turf" they'd say with a big broad grin when id ask.

Good work sir.

Class !

Thank God mother nature in her wisdom over time will sort this one out. As she has learned to do so many times.
She is the master at solving so called human errors  gombeens bestow on us and nature.

Theres not a single executive at BP with the brains they were born with. There thought process is pulverised with power and greed.

My thoughts are with the people all along the gulf.
