Hey, hey. I’m still alive, just been a little busy and a little lazy. I actually have a good reason for being gone and that was a surprise trip up to Seattle to see mom and dad (with help from brother as co-conspirator). We did all of our favorite family things: cooking, eating, napping, and lots of laughing. It was a GREAT weekend.
One of the best parts was coming home to see that dad had fashioned this crazy contraption in an attempt to scare away a regular visitor to his koi pond. He’s managed cats, possums, and raccoons but there is one animal of the avian variety that is making him quite nervous: the lovely blue heron. It often comes to hangout by the back pond because they love the water, but they also love fish, so while he hasn’t stolen any dad is on a mission to keep him at bay.
As much as we’ve tried to explain that a visit from this majestic bird could be considered somewhat rare and special, dad is in full-fledged Caddyshack mode. I have no idea how it works or how he came up with it, but it’s crazy and genius at the same time!
Weird? Yes. But not out of the ordinary. Ahh, I have the best family ever.
