Vandal by any other name

I was lounging around the garden, feeling a tad bored.


Mr Bingley

Then it occurred to me.
Why sit around waiting?
I should go forth ...
.. to where THEY are... (birdies)

So I did.
First I climbed the tree ...

... sitting still by the birdie treats 
(no birdie could see me, I felt sure!)

.. then I clambered up to the very tree top where the birdies swoop in ...
(but eventually I found myself yawning again)
I came down ...

.. and then the bombshell hit!
I should go forth to the birdie meal station direct!

Even though Mrs H came outside at the exact moment I had this bombshell,
I just went right ahead!

Once I had the meal station on the ground (albeit a bit broken), I was most disappointed to discover 
NO BIRDIES!

However, on the positive, I wasn't bored anymore because Mrs H was with me while she went about mending the bird table.
It was a good 45 minutes of entertainment because she never has the right screws.

    I would ask those hens to send you a spare mouse, but I don't think it would arrive in any condition suitable for amusement!

    Thankyou Helen for your lovely comment, I feel very flattered

  19. Hahaha oh Mr Bingley! You are quite strong to break the bird meal station. Sorry for Mrs H but glad you got entertainment :-)

  20. Bingley, we laffed and laffed! We think the entertainment was worth no birdies.

  26. Oh that Mr. Bingley is too funny...trying to turn the bird feeder into a cat feeder! But I suppose that's actually quite brilliant. So glad I happened upon these leading men!
