My Hero!

On Tuesday I posted about the Squatters that have made their home on our back porch. If you missed it, you can see it here.

Since I made that post, Will and Winnie's babies have hatched. You can click on the picture below to enlarge it, then look carefully and you can make out four of the five nestlings.

It has been so fun watching Winnie and Will feed these little guys. Soon they will be leaving the nest and making their way in the big world. That began me fretting because this was directly below the nest.

A large hole in the flooring. I could just see the babies dropping out of the nest right through that hole with no way to get them out. During dinner last night, I expressed my concerns to Hubs.

This morning, this was what was happening on the back porch.

Before the day was over, the temporary repair of the porch was complete.

I feel better now.

And what about that man I married? Is he not the best? He is my hero!

He is the best. He heard your concern and he also has a heart and fixed the problem before it became a real problem. Hero's are among us!!!

What a sweetheart you have! And how cool is it to be able to watch the birdies?!

Hip Hip Horray!!!! Your man has saved the Day!!! Repairing the porch floor not only will keep those little birdies from being able to fall in but it will keep the other critters from crawling up!
