I felt bad for the new UPS guy this week. They had to make two trips to my house to drop off 72 large boxes of medical supplies. The funny thing was all the supplies fit easily in one box. It took my husband a few hours to break down all the boxes. We were able to find a home for them; someone was looking for moving boxes.

I heard hummingbirds were in the area so I put out my feeder. I have yet to see any. Remember you can make your own nectar by mixing 1 part regular sugar to 4 parts water. Please avoid the red dye!

Many thanks to the volunteers who worked on a Day of Service in the community on April 30. The Ecology Learning Center hosted the event. I “supervised” several local Rotarians who rid the town of a dozen bags of roadside litter. I’ve always made a little joke that my house was approximately one beer bottle away from town.
