    It's kinda funny my boyfriend was checking the spicket on the wall where her nest is and she went crazy dive bombing him. But I can walk right up to her nezt and she just flyes up into a tree and yells at me a couple times then just sits there and watches me.

    Funny how they get used to a person. I used to have a pair of fly catchers aka Phoebes who would follow me all around the yard. They would raise 3 broods of babies every summer.

    And I have a strange feeling that my tomatoes are doing good that could possibly do with the fact that they're taking up more than half of my garden.

    So you cant go on a road trip without some problems. Well my brother in law came with us and was riding his bike, here is the problem his phone is in our truck charging and we lost him. We took the turnoff we where supposed to take and he kept going straight. We have no way of getting a hold of him and have no idea where he is.
