'Dear Little Buttercup, Won't You Stay Awhile...?'

Mr. A and I were eating lunch in a nearby Mexican restaurant the other day. They always pipe in that happy mariachi music. I said, 'Everytime I'm in here I always feel like I'm in "The Three Amigos"...'

Steve Martin, Martin Short and Chevy Chase are hired to kill off a ruthless Mexican overlord. They've just ridden into town. The locals all think they're killers, no one realizes they're actors who play vigilantes in the movies. They don't realize everyone thinks they're killers, they think they've been hired for a movie. Classic.



In The Answer My Friend, Is Blowin' In the Wind, I mentioned that my finch sock had been dragged away by some stealthy animal.

I think this was the culprit.



I did get a new one, and within the 30 seconds that it took to get back to the house and turn around to look at it, there were already three goldfinches on it :)

Finally caught myself a male, I do believe!





It's been up for a couple of weeks, and nothing's chewed holes in it. The finches are getting fat and happy though! :)

So glad your finches are happy, and that your bandit squirrel seems to have moved on!

Definitely a male there. We've gotten a couple in the last week that are clearly showing traces of their yellow summer coloration. Can't wait 'til they turn completely!

And that movie is hilarious. Three great comedians, all in one film. :)

Yay! You got goldfinches! Ours moved on last week sometime. The feeders have been quite (and full) for a few days.

Jess: Hehe, thanks :D

CVF: Well, at least I've foiled him for the time being. I just hope he doesn't sneak up and nunchuck me O_O

Sunny and Sheila: Thank you! :)

Meredith: I think I may get to see them as bright yellow before spring is over with, and they're gone for the summer :)

Jodi: I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as I did :D
