Feeder Fail

We got a hard glaze of ice the other day and deemed the path to the garage, where the feeders are kept overnight, too treacherous to navigate.  I spread salt on the walk but it takes a while to work.We had various species drop by only to find disappointment.  The salt finally started to thaw the glaze well enough to scrape off with a shovel.
Lonesome dove. There was a pretty good book named Lonesome Dove that was made into a TV miniseries.  It was developed first as as a movie script that came to naught so McMurtry turned it into the book.  I have it as an audio book, all 36 hours of it.
