    I feel your feeding comments are somehow connected to K. Graham. Your empathy is exquisite. Glad to hear you will have more space. I have a small space but it helps keep me in check. I tend to fill all space available wherever I am. Hope you will enjoy your new space.
    Get rid of that damn cold girlfriend. Enough is enough.

    You can’t move! Your current mailing address is so sweet and charming, and it took me forever to memorize it. Does the new place have a/c?

    Well, I won’t blow sunshine here – it would certainly be more convenient for your flock if you stayed put. During breeding season, our feeders serve as an endless series of casseroles in the fridge for harried parents. Babies eat bugs, but the adults at least don’t have to spend any extra time and energy foraging for themselves too. But they really will adapt. I am really looking forward to hearing about your new place, and maybe even SEEING IT (when it’s not too hot or tornado-y or oak mite season).

    For moving? Two men and a truck. Reasonable prices and really excellent service.

    I love your old place! You can’t get closer to the Merc. But good luck with the move, and I hope the cat and squirrels adjust. I love Republic of Doyle; keep your eye out for members of the Newfie band great big sea. And if you haven’t heard of great big sea, go research them immediately.

    When I left my place in Scotland, to move 12,000 miles away, a place I had known the place since I was 17 (as my parents had retired there and I looked after my mother there caring for her till she passed away in her own bed ) so over 40 years .. I felt exactly this way. As I am a believer in letting the birds and animals know, possibly via the local Fae ( yes I know you will think I am mad but ..) that is what I did. I also explained to the house itself ..I did reduce the care for the birds a little, but as I did so I said to them out loud what was going on and why ..I also used Reiki, but the intention with love on its own is effective. I still changed their water and I left food for the new owners and did my best to explain that the birds had helped me through some very low moments in that garden. I have no idea if they bothered. I am still missing that place, as it was by the sea and I said goodbye to the seals there as well .. but I had to leave and rehome my dog. ( so hard and he just passed away two months ago ) I am renting now, less than ideal and no garden but a lot of trees and many sparrows ( my garden in Scotland, according to a local bird lover had more sparrows than any other ) and blackbirds are here, they always remind me of my Mother and her Father ..What I am trying to convey is that it’s worth letting them all know you are going ..I packed your books (among many others ) to bring with me , I love your writing.

    Ceiling fans will keep the heat costs down, although they will raise your ceiling fan costs.
