Do you feed birds?   The Natural You: Wild Kingdom

I hope you soon have it functioning properly.  Since I live in a densely populated suburban area, I don't get to see the type of wildlife you do.  I would be delighted to see the photos.

Maybe I can catch some skunks and raccoons eating cat food, although I try to time the feedings where the cats eat it all before the wildlife shows up.

That would be interesting.  Haven't seen a skunk since I left the farm many, many years ago.  I've had a glimpse of one raccoon, even though I've seen their footprints down by the river.  I can't remember the last time I saw a 'possum. 

I've seen possums out here about 10 years ago or so. It's been a while but if not locally extinct thanks to habitat destruction / encroachment by massive suburban development in the past 5 to 7 years.

There's enough wooded area in this subdivision that I would not be surprised to know that there are 'possums here.  I've never seen any, however.

Have you managed to fix the camera?

Not yet. I've had much bigger fish to fry today. But I did find the thermal fuse blown in a couple of fan motors, made a positive identification, and got enough of them ordered to repair all of the failed units so far.

And have been searching for a replacement battery for a customers' equipment so it will operate properly. I think I found a direct source, although freight will probably mean a fairly big minimum number due to the weight.

You certainly seem to stay busy.

Well, i could sit around and watch TV in my underwear with a 4 day stubble all day while drinking Duff beer.

But since there hasn't been jack from the unemployment stuff we were supposed to get because their system is hopelessly broken, I better hustle before savings eventually run dry.

I think you enjoy being busy.  In my experience, most do.

Yeah I can't stand being idle for long periods of time even though I can certainly appear quite lazy when I do get some time to rest.
