I just got up from a two-hour nap after fiddling with the fountain. I put fresh water in too fast and it washed all the sunflower seeds the grackles drop in into the chamber with the impeller and they blocked the input. Cleaning that out isn't a big deal, but getting the hose back on the top piece is, because the nipple where the hose goes is eroding. The fountain is pretty old, I suppose I'll have to buy a new top piece next year.

I don't know why the grackles drop seeds into the fountain; the seeds won't sprout because they've been microwaved to keep from growing.

I meant to post this earlier -- the sound hasn't come up on the computer the last two days and that happens maybe a day every few months so Thursday didn't worry me, but I was a little concerned yesterday, and I decided that if it came up without sound today, I'd shut it down and open the case. Right before I did that, I remembered that the cleaning lady had been here on Wednesday and I checked to see if she'd turned the speakers off. Uhhuh. I'm listening to Tanglewood Tree by Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer. Excellent folk-rock, but it's the words that catch you.

We went to Six Flags today to see the Wiggles. When we got back, the package was waiting. Sarah tore into her part with zeal, and breathlessly declared that it was just what she wanted for her birthday!

Looks like a hit. Thanks for the pedometer, too. I'll take it for a walk on Monday.

Oooh, the Wiggles! I know Sarah likes those. Isn't her birthday in February? I'm glad she liked them anyway! When I saw that gingerbread woman cookie cutter years ago, I had to have it. I've made many gb women with it and I hope Sarah will like making them, too.

I hope the pedometer works out for you.

I'm glad you like the music!

P.S. I believe that grackles drop seeds into the fountain because they are full of mischief. But perhaps I am anthropomorphizing.

I like Drum Hat Buddha just a bit more, but they're both really good.

The grackles have mostly shown impatience with getting to the seed so far, but maybe I'll see mischief soon.
