Re: You might be a Purple Neck if....

:grin: If you see that your neighbor has replaced their S&K Plastic house with a new one, & see the old one broken next to their trash, and for a "Nanosecond" a thought of "rescuing" it flashes across your mind ! :???: :shock:

Re: Disney World Purple Martin Colony

:oops: Oops !, My Bad, I forgot to mention that I believe that every gourd should have extra vents that Can be plugged, JUST in case there is a heat wave that Should hit the area, if not, the vents can stay plugged, ( or not (?) ) I guess I'm a "Better Safe than..." person, Thanks All ! :grin:
