Empty Glass!

I'm sorry for not writing for so long, but I have an excuse—I've been pretty depressed. But knock-on-wood I am started to see the light at the end of the tunnel and I am feeling much better. But then again—it is early.

Also my other excuse for not writing lately is that I've become addicted to solving jigsaw puzzles, on my iPad and I am blaming my sweet sister Cindy for that new habit.

I've been trying to curb my addiction to these fun puzzles by playing solitaire, on my lap top, so now I have two addictions, jigsaw puzzles and solitaire, that I never had before all of this mess with that horrible virus.

Anyway, I am seriously thinking about starting a program that I've named JPSA (Jigsaw Puzzle Solvers Anonymous) and I will let y'all know when I open the first JPSA chapter in Medina. But remember it is anonymous, so I will not be able to reveal names or the secret location.

A few days ago while I was sewing my costume for me to wear in Jay Pennington's & Gerry Olert's upcoming Short Western—Vinegar To Honey, Tony came inside The Cabin and he was mad, and he said, "Last night something happened to all of my hummingbird feeders. They were emptied and completely dry this morning and I filled them up last night, before dark....I am going to move our game cameras and hope to find out what happened or who did it...."

While Tony was outside moving the cameras—I finished sewing my outfit for the movie. Knowing  that I had to make my costume look old, ragged and dirty-looking, because of the character that I am playing I pondered how to distress my outfit.

I thought about spilling coffee on it, making a mud puddle outside and soaking it in the mud, etc., but I wasn't wild about either one of these ideas, so I pondered a little longer.

Then I had a light bulb moment and I knew exactly how to make my costume look old and tattered—I would drag the garments on the floor, because it is always dusty and covered in dog hair! And it worked!

Anyway, as I was dragging my skirt around the big room's floor Tony walked inside, and he asked, "What are you doing! Is Hazle dead?" And after I explained to him why I was dragging my clothes around on the floor Tony thought I was brilliant. I think?

Yesterday Tony downloaded the pictures from his game cameras and he found out why his hummingbird feeders were emptied and who had done it. Here are four game pictures and I've titled them—An Empty Glass. Because I love Gary Stewart's song Empty Glass.

FYI: The night before Tony "set his trap" and he intentionally emptied his feeders, and hung them back up, so later when Mr. R showed up it explains why he looks confounded as to why they were already empty.

Before I finish writing this tonight, so I can get back to solving another jigsaw puzzle, The Mineral Man sent me this YouTube link to enjoy and to refresh my memory. It is one of Gerry Olert's fabulous videos that he filmed at the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch and at our last fundraiser held in April 2014. And I enjoyed watching it. So, please click here to enjoy it.

Y'all have a great evening and keep on laughing!

Funny, Nancy. I just started doing online jigsaw puzzles, too. I had seen my friends post their tabletop jigsaw puzzles and I caught the jigsaw disease. I hope it's not a lengthy addiction because I have lots of housework and yard work to do. But now, another puzzle!!

You have a masked bandit! So sorry he's highjacking your Hummingbird Hooch! My friends in California captured a BEAR taking their hummingbird feeder down and sitting back and drinking it straight up like an old hobo LOL
Hope your bandit takes off so you can leave your feeders full again.
Sorry to hear you're feeling blue, Nancy. This is such a stressful time for everyone, it's no wonder you're down. I think we all are from time to time and I really hope this is over sooner rather than later.
Tail wags,

Hi Mary and Fay!

Mary, I am sorry to hear about your addiction. Maybe you could start a JPSA group in your area? But it might be difficult to recruit, because you must be anonymous. It makes me sick. First the virus and now innocent seniors getting addicted to solving jigsaw puzzles. We are living in strange times.

Hi Fay! I hope these masked bandits forget about robbing our hummingbird feeders and move on down the highway, because I don't want them to become diabetic.

I am feeling better now, but then again it is early. Thankyou for your comment. They always cheer me up.
