I'm pretty sure that Charlie and Tilde are long, lost relatives!
Thanks, I worry about Sluggo. Until now, she's never worried me at all. She's always been in good health, and rugged.
I don't know if it will happen, but I'm still holding out that Tux will come into the house. If not, he's still settling in nicely, as you said, and looks good.
Did you find the katydid's recently?
That's a good thing...the mosquitoes dying off for the year. Ours are always gone by the time it's October, regardless of weather, which has never made sense to me.
We used to get together with my parents in early October, before my dad's birthday, which was the 8th, and sometimes it was still quite hot. Even where there were mosquitoes a week before, they weren't there when we sat outside with them...either at the hotel...which had a creek right next to it, or here.
I guess that they didn't dare mess with my dad! ;-)
Of course, this year, they'd be gone just because of the weather!
It's nice that changing where and how you are feeding the birds has worked out so well!
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
