A pure delight. The weather forecast is for freezing temperatures this weekend.

We got Maggie from an animal shelter so we don’t know her background.
We have found out that, if you don’t latch the bathroom door securely, Maggie will come crashing in to visit.
She promptly climbs into your pants and makes herself comfortable.
Sam, the black cat wants to know what Maggie is doing. Sam seemed quite upset over the blow to feline superiority.

The weather has been terrible for the harvest this year, almost t continuous rain.
Sparrows etc don’t go near the pile. As soon as it is cleared the will go and root around in the gravel to find seeds.
Perhaps so much food overwhelms the birds to the point they don’t recognize it as a food source.

When we constructed the bunkie, I’ll explain that later, we just had the shell built and I did what I could to finish the inside.
After insulating I needed to drywall or paneling for the walls.
Being cheap I recycled some old 3 ft x 4ft masonite (composite board) panels. This was functional if not attractive.
We had a large pile of old National Geographic and calendars. Rather than purchase wallpaper Anne used the maps and photos from this source.
I think it turned out well.
The term Bunkie comes from cottage country. To make extra bedrooms many small garages were converted to bunk houses. To conserve air it was shortened to Bunkie.

We put grapes in small mesh bags for orioles and redheaded woodpeckers.
What surprised us robins trying to get at the grapes.
I hadn’t seen a robin at a feeder before but this one kept trying.
I missed getting the summersaults and head stands he was performing.

The racoons, opossums and coyotes that came calling were impressed with the realism of her outfit.
BTW we live WAY out in the country
