Anyone that doesn't read the blog probably thought that I was stark, raving, mad. No comments please.
Tessie was very pleased with the answer. Don't tell her that I have a couple of other real live favorite minis.
They live in the back yard. I simply call them the "Hummers". There are three hummingbirds that live very close and are in the yard all of the time. If I am outside, they will buzz my head, missing only by inches. The first time one of them did that, it scared me half to death. Now I am used to it.
There are other hummers that come to visit, but these three are residents. I took the feeder down and brought it into the house to refill. The momma bird hovers by the kitchen window about 6" from the glass watching to see that I do it correctly. When I take it back out and hang it up they are on it immediately.
I have tried to get photos of them. A blur is mostly how they turn out. Here you can see them both, but just barely.
Momma seems to enjoy perching on the barbed wire wreath that I have hanging on the post. It about 6 feet from the feeder and the window. This is the only good photo that I have gotten of any of them. OK, so it's not great. You try getting a photo of a birds that flap their wings hundreds of times a minute.
Now back to the real minis. When I got home from the mini meeting yesterday, I was very pleased to see that the whole front of the house was plastered. Zar had stucco on his hands and even on his shoes. The hypnosis was wearing off and he kept trying to avoid looking at the crystal....The silly man thinks that holding up a used library card will protect him!
Tessie finally let him go with a warning....."If you ever try hypnotizing me again, YOU will be toast!" I don't know if that means she is going to stuff him in her oven or something worse. Probably the something worse option.
Let's just say he has been put in his place. I think that he is still trying to figure out a way to make her forget the secret room, but it won't be by putting her in a trance. We shall see what he comes up with to take the place of the crystal.
Tessie is hanging on to that for dear life and the last I saw of Balthazar he was cowering in a corner of the secret room, by the dumbwaiter, chewing his nails. Lesson learned for now.....
See you tomorrow.
