There isn't much to report on the Traveling Three Cats Ranch front today. We were tired after a day of driving added to our weeks of being social butterflies. Also, it was a very windy day yesterday, and not particularly warm. It wasn't a good day for being outside, and so I was inside for most of the day.
The first item on the agenda was to fix the tire on the RV. I mentioned yesterday that it had lost pressure on our drive from Escondido. Mike jacked up the RV and pulled off the tire where he found this screw at the tread's edge.
We took down our seed feeder. Many of you had some good ideas about why feeding birds other than hummers wasn't allowed, including problems with disease. And, yes, we had those same problems in the Pacific Northwest last year. As it turns out, it was to discourage the pigeons. We do remember there being a lot of pigeons here from previous visits. We haven't been outside much, but I can't say I've seen any this time around. Aside from crapping all over everything, it seems the pigeons like to build their nests in the nooks and crannies of RV's, including under the slide toppers where an RVer wouldn't be able to see them and might bring in the slides, crushing the birds, and potentially damaging the slides. And so the RV park isn't wanting to encourage them. Completely understandable.
Okay, so today we'll be hanging out here except for treks to the tire center. I'm going to get out the sewing machine and start sewing together the City Bank quilt blocks.
