I TRY to see big picture, and plan accordingly and give way too much advice-working on that. I share my life with: SH (sweet Husband), SS(sweet Son), SD(sweet Daughter), SSIL (sweet son in law), SGS(sweet Grandson), SCs (sweet cats), extended family and friends.
This is a typical scene in my farm hometown. The silos are full of field corn for the winter meals for the animals, and the birds are hanging on the sides and pecking at the ground below-trying to get a snack.
Or as I like to think of it: THE WORLD'S BIGGEST BIRD FEEDER!
