Re: Breakfast on the lanai

Amazing view Parker has, Chris! And he's looking good, my friend. That umbrella setup is a good idea. I can definitely empathize with the raptor issue. We have a bunch of different predators flying around my area as well. Killed any notions I had regarding free flight VERY early on.

Re: Breakfast on the lanai

Thanks my friend.

On a gorgeous, low humidity day we have sat out there for a couple hours just relaxing. It really is a slice of paradise (I say as we consider very seriously moving).

Moving? From that scenic locale? You must be moving to actual Lanai, then! Lol!

Re: Breakfast on the lanai

Contemplating! We live in DC suburbs in Maryland. It’s expensive here, and we are very asset rich/cash poor.

Due to the pandemic, I have the capability of working remotely - if eddie (who has been unemployed since February 1 with a REMARKABLE severance) can get a remote position As well, We realized recently that moving somewhere like Houston, we can have a nicer home for much less. We’ll be able to free money up and not be so paycheck to paycheck. Have a life.

Keep the dc pay while living in a cheaper city.

Geeez Chris...with all the crap that has been happening in that area..hurricane's and flooding and such ( ya I know DC has been experiencing that stuff too) It's really screwed up now with climate change. I'm wondering what this winter has in store for CT this year. Last year's snow fall was MAYBE a total of fifteen inches with a couple nasty ice storms.

Amy doesn't/cant/wont fly either,no matter what I try with him. He just likes the flap flap lessons we do Even if he gets frightened,jumps and waves his arms frantically it's always a THUD to the floor with a look of " what just happened?"

BB would be an easy target for the raptors we have here too.

Re: Breakfast on the lanai

Lol Jim - the DMV (DC/maryland/VA) hasn’t really had those. Lots of rain lately. Sure, but no hurricanes or anything. This years been unusually wet, but not torrential.

I’m hoping for more winter this year than last. For the first time since I’ve lived in the area (1999, when I was a sophomore in high school) we got ZERO snow. Very unlike this region.
