Wordless Wednesday...What Happens When You Run Out of Projects

 

Since we’ve returned to Houston, Larry has been having all kinds of fun tinkering with whatever he can get his hands on. If it needs to be fixed...his eyes light up. 

However this week, he must have run out of projects. 

 

larry and the limb

 

The dead tree in our yard was almost removed when we moved in but the birds loved it, so we let it "live" another day! However a few days ago one of the limbs fell off. 

 

What’s a tinkerer to do?  He drilled holes in the fallen limb and placed titanium rods in it, then drilled corresponding holes in the limb that was still attached to the tree. 

 

Add some heavy-duty epoxy and Ouila!!!  

 

We’ll see how long it lasts!  Fingers crossed.

Very thoughtful.  We do not get many birds in our yard.  It is a shame.  I am glad Larry could fix your bird tree and I hope it lasts a long time.

Good morning Kathy Streib - I didn't know that was possible.  Kudos to Larry but I am sure he will find another project.

What an ingenious fix, maybe not cheap, cannot imagine those rods are not expensive, but keeping the birds happy is important.

Sharon Lee when I see our bluebirds, I think of you.
