I am glad I slept through the night b/c that's how I found out my friend Kim has been keeping a secret. When I woke up this morning I knew all kinds of things that I didn't before I went to sleep. Kim and I were walking down the halls at school and that's when I found out she was pregnant. Someone else had told me, not Kim. I was really upset with her for not telling me, I thought we shared everything, KIM! Well, I told her it was going to be fine, when she had told me she was scared. I told her I was actually jealous, I wanted a baby too. Of coarse what ever either one of us gets,the other one wants to. We have the same taste in a lot of things. Too funny! Of coarse, I trying to do my job at school the whole time all of this was going on. The little girl we help was in my dream to. I left her in the restroom by her self, which I never do. When I went back in, she was sitting there asleep on the toliet. I almost dropped her on the floor while helping her off the toilet and she got mad at me! (imagine that) After putting on her p.j.'s, to go home?????? What???? She said she needed to go out front and smoke a cigarette. She was nervous b/c I almost dropped her. Now we all know there is no smoking in school. Well, when I held the door open for her, there was a group of kids outside smoking. Also, there was also a group of football players and coaches who came in the restroom on us and would not leave. I told them they were in big trouble, I said, "Just wait till I get out of here". Where this dream came from I have no clue, but it sure was weird. Oh well!!

Well, the bird business is good. Because of the video, we now have enough soup to last us for months. Rick said the guy didn't add the part that said he was only joking. One guy didn't have soup so he brought us a can of corn. These are all Rick's card buddies. Anyway, a lady got a hold of the man who did the interview and ask him to contact us and see if she could make a donation. Long story short, Rick talked to her and told her that was not necesary and she said she really wanted to. So she sent him a check for $100.00. He went out and purchased $98 worth of food for the birds and squirels. He sent her a card and put the receipt in there. My Rick was so worried that people would think he came up with some kind of scam. So he sent her the receipt. He buys corn for the squirels. Then he gets suet for the woodpeckers, we have three different kinds that come. Then he has to have sunflower seed, thistle, peanuts, bird seed. You would think just put out birdseed, no not my Ricky. Oh we have to have a big jar of peanut butter b/c several of the birds like that. They are fun to watch. Here are just some of the birds he attracts. They are all unique in their own way. The nuthatch is the only bird that walks down the tree head first. And now you have a lesson in Birds 101, whether you wanted it or not!

My husband Rick has became a celebrity almost overnight. The community we live in is a little neighborhood in Cincinnati. Rick was born here and basically lived here all his 53 yrs. Anyway, a man from the Cincinnati Enquirer does a story every week of the 52 neighborhoods of Cinti. So this week as he was driving around Linwood looking for a story, he happened upon my husband's "bird sanctuary". He stopped monday and ask if he could come back and take pictures and do an interview. Rick said sure! Now because of some of the things he said, everyone is having fun with him. One of his friends could not wait to bring this can of "soup" down tonight. He said he wanted to make sure we had supper. Funny, Duke, Very Funny! So, check it out and I hope it makes you smile! It sure did me. Once you open the link, click on One Voice. I've also heard that you can google "Rick Smitson Birdman" Great, that's just great!  Rick also told the man that he was not much of a talker. Does it sound like this man had any trouble talking???????

I don't think I can go back to work b/c it is too cold. I think I will retire and let my Ricky get another job and take care of me. Yes, I thought about it and I think that will work. He is always saying I am the week female and he is the strong male. That is why I think I will be a weak female. Today is the last day to do nothing. Of coarse, everyone knows that I can find about a million things to do. You know 2010 is going to be the year I make a quilt. Also, lose weight, win the lottery, get organized, and so on!
