I Wanted A Birdbath But Got A Battery
This morning as I was sitting on my bench sipping coffee I noticed a bird hanging on to the back of the air conditioner for dear life. I realized it was trying to sip the condensation from the back of the air conditioner. I should do something for this poor bird. In the afternoon I decided to to to Virginia Twins to see about a birdbath. My truck battery was dead, caput. Took about an hour for AAA (thank goodness for them) to get here, push the truck out of the garage and get it started. I felt a little guilty not helping the young man push it out butttt I pay them every year and some years I don't use it at all. Sign the paper and off to WalMart. Yep need a new battery ( I kinda figured that), bought the one with a two year guarantee over five since I keep saying I'm going to buy a new truck. Trouble is three people are already in line to want to buy my old one sooo who do I sell it to, how much do I ask, who will have their feeling hurt? Decisions, decisions, decisions. While I'm there I have the tires rotated and check the garden shop for birdbaths. None, zip, nil, zero. When my truck was finished I went by Virginia Twins. Oh they had some cute ones and the size I wanted so I can move it onto the porch when John mows. I thought $74.00 was a little steep since I already have a big one across the street in my yard. Little birdie will have to fly across the street to drink until I find a light weight less expensive one or maybe he/she would rather have the condensation anyway.
