What to buy a Mother-in-Law

After 22 years I've just about maxed out the redundent gift possibilities so this year I made her one..She can while away her days watching the birds fight for food and flit and flitter around.

Thought I'd share it........what does it have to do with boating?...well...er...um...there is a fishing pole and bailing bucket in there someplace......................OH ya now I remember........I'm the big dummy that takes her presious grandchildren out in the middle of the Ocean in a rickerty old sail boat ......I'm just trying to buy points.

Hows that..

I like it man!! Nice work. But if it's a bird feeder where do you put the seed ? And where do the birds eat ?

Cool

Misread the title. Thought it was "Want to buy a Mother-in-Law?" That would be a very small market indeed...

You guys are a riot...I'm going to have her log in here...I will be a saint in her eyes after this....Thanks Guys...

Paul:
Here ya go..and if you look real close at the viedo the front and back walls have a 1/4 inch raised gap along the botton most of the way across.

I built a ^ shape to direct the seed directly to them so there will be no dead space in the middle for seed to sit and go bad. It will hold 7 lbs of seed .

When I first read the heading on this thread my dyslexic self thought it said "Want to buy a mother in law" and I was going to say, "What! Are you crazy?"

bird feeder

Way cool, Still... she should like it, and the birds will too. With all this snow we're having here, ours peck at the window if I'm 5 minutes late in filling it... they're very demanding. Yours will probably be wondering if the little building is heated.

Best, Bob S/V Restless
