This was the first year I could tell everyone what I wanted for Christmas. My mother wanted to get me a dishwasher and I told her I would rather have a heated bird bath. She looked at me as if I had three heads and shook her head. I explained to her that I didn't mind washing dishes and I would rather give the birds fresh water year round anyways.
I guess they are finally catching on. My mother dropped off some clothes that didn't fit her anymore at my doorstep and inside of the box was a Christmas ornament with a cardinal on it that was on her tree. She decided to give it to me because she thought I would appreciate it more. My sister called me last night out of the blue to tell me she was thinking of me after seeing a commercial with birds in it.
Am I the only one with family and friends who think of me as a little strange for liking birds or are there others out there?
