Well?-Robins' New Home
In the past week, Redbush has been busy preparing her yard for Mr. Redbush's birthday party on the weekend. She had to do the much needed trimming, grass cutting, and weeding. On Friday when she thought she had the major part of the preparing done, her water well ceased to produce water. Her dilemma now was, should she cancel the party, or carry on letting everyone use the bathroom in her holiday trailer, or the bush behind her acreage! The water well people said that they couldn't come to have a look at things until the morning of the party. After being told that it definitely wasn't the pump, the scenario about having to drill another well devastated Redbush and Mr. Redbush. They had just gotten done getting a huge bill for the siding being redone on their house. It wasn't going to be a very cheerful birthday party on the Redbushs' family's behalf. Upon checking more closely the well man told the Redbushs that they only needed a new pressure switch. Wheeeeeeew! What a relief! Hopefully the bill for repairing the switch will be minimal compared to a new well! Redbush and Mr. Redbush wouldn't smell afterall! The party went on as planned, and although the winds were in gail-force, she believes everyone had a good time eating a meal Redbush had prepared,drinking their favorite beverage (beer), and playing hillbilly golf. On a different subject, two weeks or so ago, Redbush noticed that eggs had been scattered on the ground from a robin's nest near one of her spruce trees. A week later, she noticed that probably the same robins started constructing a nest under the eve of her shed. Redbush has a tomato hotbed on the ground below, and lately the robins have become very upset at her when she attempts to water her hotbed. Today it seems Ms. Robin has become used to Redbush and Bonzi wandering around beneath her nest and has stayed put sitting on, and guarding her eggs. Redbush is apologizing for not dropping by on the blog world in the past while. She has posted a few pictures of the robins' family's new home. She hopes everyone has a great weather week!
