I’ve Been Robin Egged


The weather has been nice, winter is almost over (spring doesn't start until May 15th), and the house needs some work on the exterior. I headed for the stepladder, which hangs in the carport against the shop wall. However, I was startled by a loud squawking that nearly scared the bird poo out of me. A robin had built a nest on top of the ladder and upon inspection I found it contained four bright blue eggs. That means no ladder work until the eggs hatch, the birds mature, and leave the nest. How long does that take!? If Busy Dingbat was an oudoor cat we might get this to progress a whole lot quicker. Oh well, plenty of other work to do in the meantime and there is a lot of summer left. Heck, winter isn't even over yet!
