They are much prettier before children suck the life out of them. Mrs and I watched a pair of eastern blue birds raise two clutches (5 in each) a couple feet from our window. You could watch the colors fade and the feathers get rattier day by day. It made me feel a little better about how exhausted I felt (still feel) when it came to raising kids.

VT_Jeff wanted this to be a surprise. All I did was get him your address so he could ship them to you. I do think it was really nice of him to do this.

It made my day. Mrs is happy too. She likes the bling factor. Going to be a couple days before I can get holes drilled. Those things take a lot more screws than the new plastic ones!

Thanks VT Jeff. I truly appreciate it.

Hope you can use them! I love a good surprise and figured you would as well. Fuzz was complicit so he got ratted out on the "From" label. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Enjoy.
