It’s Wrestle Mania without the wrestlers! We don’t watch WWE any more; we haven’t watched it in years. Guess it’s still good entertainment. Now a days we watch BIRDS! They’re a lot less rehearsed and most of them are better looking than Triple H. If you would like to watch birds but don’t want to spend a fortune on feeders and feed, we found the bird feeder for you. It attracts some really neat feathered folks and uses suet cakes – they don’t cost a lot and they don’t spill out on the floor like when you accidentally let the bird food bag slip out of your hands. You might see some woodpeckers, jays, bluebirds, and more. TRY IT – YOU’LL LIKE IT- That’s a promise.
Here’s another TRC Recreation super pool float. Why is it that the women get to float in the pool for hours while us guys get to pay for the pool floats? That’s a dumb question isn’t it? We pay for the floats so we can watch the beautiful women float in the pool for hours! So much for that dumb question! This is a really neat float though – it comes in ten different colors and designs. I like the bronze palm best, but the green leaf and the wave are close seconds. Put a couple of these floats in your pool and you won’t regret it! Just think, if you have two – one might be for you! Then you can spend hours in the pool and the sun too! Now that’s a unique twist!!
If you’re a Major League Baseball player – that’s a bad thing! But if you’re out in the patio or on the deck, “sitting on the bench” is a good thing! There’s nothing like a couple strategically placed benches to make your backyard visitor friendly and comfortable. I found a couple two-seaters that looked great and one had an added benefit. This bench had a full sized storage compartment under the seat so you had a place to put all kinds of stuff without buying a deck box. By the way, we found out that deck boxes are not good benches – last time someone sat on one the whole side of the deck box caved in. So now you can have a deck box that doubles as a good sitting bench, or a good sitting bench that doubles as a deck box. Either way, you have a good investment – one that adds beauty to the décor and “space for stuff.”
Somehow you have to take care of the flame maker – “the wood.” Are you still stacking it up on the garage floor or in your backyard storage closet? Maybe you pile it up on the ground. Come on – let’s get practical. You need your garage space and the closet space! If your woods on the ground it stays wet and the bottom pieces rot in the dirt. That’s no way to take care of your fire wood – you probably paid good sweat and sore muscles or, worse yet, hard earned cash for your wood. It’s an investment; treat it like one. There are plenty of good quality inexpensive log hoops on the market – get one! Take a look at one I found – less than $30, good looking, and ready for your wood!
You can play all these games – right in your own backyard! Get some family and friends together and you have all the resources you need to have good and healthy fun. None of these games are expensive and all are great entertainment and good exercise. The kids can join in, the neighbors can join in, even the grandparents can play!! If you have a favorite – go for it! If you’re undecided – try one! If your too lazy to play – get off your duff!! Even a slacker can throw a cornhole bag, a bocce ball, or a horseshoe. And it doesn’t take an Olympic champion to hit the shuttlecock or the volleyball – try it – you’ll like it!! Don’t spend all summer sitting on couch watching TV – get outside and enjoy all the backyard games that are simple and fun!!
Tired of the charcoal – buy the charcoal, put it in the grill, buy the lighter fluid, soak the charcoal with the lighter fluid, burn the charcoal, clean up the ashes, and put the ashes in a plastic bag and then in the trash – and then start all over again? If you’re like me – Yes I’m tired of it! If you’re like me – where do I find a LP Gas Grill that doesn’t cost more than I got? I found one – it’s not a $1000 Weber – it’s not even a top of the line Uniflame – but it’s way less than $200 and it’s plenty big enough and it looks great! This is our answer to the poor man’s propane grill – prime quality at pauper’s price. Not going to wait on Robin Hood – going to get this grill now. You need to take a look and see what you think!
Is there a hummingbird in you bath? Not talking about your indoor tub – talking about your outdoor birdbath. If you don’t have a backyard birdbath, now is the time to get one and the one I just saw is the one to get! Never saw a birdbath like this before and to say it caught my eye is an understatement – it caught both eyes!! We have a few birdbaths in the backyard but nothing like this. Need to talk my wife into getting one! Got to find just the right place for it – somewhere where everybody, including the birds, see it!! You might take a look at this garden accessory – it will brighten up your day and your backyard. I think every backyard needs at least one hummingbird in the bath!!
This spring, I am planning to attract all kinds of different birds to my yard on a regular basis. To do this, I am trying to transform my yard into a place that is really meant for birds while adding bird feeders and bird houses to the different areas of my yard. I have been trying to save money where I can so I am trying to learn how to build these items.
To make sure that I am able to build them myself, I have bought a few different ones that I can examine the design of. I feel good having these around since they are really helping me to plan out how to build my own. I know that the sample bird feeders really help me get an idea of how to create a working feeder for my birds.
Was that the name of a song? No that was “smoke” not “bed” – I’m a dummy sometimes! My wife thinks “all the time” but that’s another story. Saw something the other day that might change her mind – if I got her one of these adjustable recliners, she’d spend the whole day floating in the pool. And you know what? I couldn’t blame her. This is like having one of those fully adjustable beds you see on TV right out in your pool!! And it’s not as expensive as one of those beds! Spring is here but the pool water is still too cold. If I order one now, it’ll be here for summer and my wife won’t think I’m a dummy this year – maybe?
Don’t know about you, but I really like outdoor bars. They are perfect for morning coffee, mid day brunch, and late afternoon beers. For years we had a bar with stools on our pool deck and seems like we spent a good part of every summer day AT THE BAR!! In a rash of insanity, we sold our old bar at a garage sale – now we don’t have one – bummer! Saw a neat set of bar and stools that I really liked and the price was right; so next step is to find where to put it. The old bar spot is being used by large outdoor dining table with six chairs. Maybe we can rearrange some of the items in the gazebo and put one up there. I would really like that.
