Scene/seen in our backyard: 3 chipmunks and numerous birds happily frolicking and scrounging under the broken "Squirrel Buster" bird feeder. The special weight-sensitive perch is lying in pieces in a new hole that has appeared in the flower bed under the feeder. The hole is full of seeds.
How did this happen? How did it happen twice? And what does this tableau have to do with retirement?
A working woman would retire the bird feeder! The retired librarian patiently re-assembles the feeder, fills the hole, rakes the flower bed......and plans a stake-out.
