What's missing in this picture?

Our bird feeder, that's what.

The other morning we got up and opened the curtains to find that some toe-rag had come down our drive in the night and helped themselves to it.  Amazing really, it's been standing outside ageing in all sorts of weather for about three years now, so it's not as if it was all shiny and new looking. We've walked around the are to see if it's lying around somewhere but it's not and it's certainly too heavy to have just blown away.

It makes you wonder what goes on in some people's minds, doesn't it?

  1. So sorry to hear someone swiped your bird feeder. As to why... some people do things just because they can.... *sigh*

  2. Very sorry about your missing bird feeder but my mind went in another direction. Being very tired of our long winter and waking to even more snow this morning, I immediately thought what was missing was SNOW. lol

  3. we were puzzled one time when our bird feeder that we had hanging from a tree disappeared - we live in the country so wasn't likely someone had walked away with it - an animal for sure - ours was rather large so where was it and what too it? We eventually found it a distance away lodge under the utility trail - it was stuck under it pretty well - we think a raccoon got it and pulled it with him and it got stuck and he couldn't unstick it?

  4. It was probably Lynns raccoons paying a visit...afterall, they demolished her bird feeder months ago! The true answer to your hats missing question...three giggling women ap-PLEEK-ay-ing!!!

  5. So sorry that someone felt they were entitled to your bird feeder! My hubby was transporting our garden arch when we were moving. It bounced out of his truck and by the time he turned around to retrieve it, it was gone! It made me so sad.

  7. We've been bringing our feeders in at night as the racoons and opposums are out from hibernation and started pulling them down.

  8. Sorry to hear that someone took a bird feeder. All I can do is shake my head. Here's hoping someone took it to "spruce" it up. Okay, that would be crazy, right? So is taking the feeder!

    hugzzzzzz

  9. When you asked what was missing, I thought you were going to say snow, and I was going to send you some of ours!

  10. Bummer! There are great pics of bird feeders you can make or buy on pinterest - another way to spend hours on the www instead of sewing!

  11. I was going to say snow, but that's us, not you. Love the toerag thing. I guess they just liked your little birdhouse. Your yard is so neat. Nothing like my jungle.

  13. Must have been the same toe rag who removed my garbage can. Dumped the garbage in the middle of the street about a block up. Yes, sounds like the same toe rag. Makes one wonder how the toe rag got across the ocean!

  14. Oh Sue, I am so sorry. Miserable little toe-rags, I despair of the society we live in these days.

    Sending big hugs to you both.

  15. Well....they're getting around. They got my accent lights for outside. We had 4 shepard's hooks with (cheap & old) solar lights hanging from them lining our front walkway from our house to the street. When I went out to mow one day last year, it took me a couple of minutes to figure out why something was "different". Realized someone had stolen our lights....worth about $40 when I had a $400 lawn mower sitting on my back porch...makes you wonder!!

  16. Well Sue, you know a bear ate my birdfeeder! Maybe he went to your neighborhood across the pond.

  18. ROFL at Lynn... bit of slang coming out there Sue!! So... not much has changed then in the 10 years since I lived in the UK. If you don't fasten it down someone will steal it. But why would anyone go to all that trouble for a bird table!?!?! xx
