Check out this pretty boy. Usually I've seen him and his buddies at the edge of Anderson Lake and down by the creek in more wildy settings, but lately he has been visiting my feeders. I guess the word is out about all that black sunflower seed to be had at the MoneyPenny digs.
So - as I'm looking at the QFC ad this week I notice that there are several things that I can buy for the food bank. I understand that attendance at our local food bank is way up these days.

Coffee Mate Update:
Readers of Miss MoneyPenny know that she has a real addiction to Coffee Mate. If there is not CM I won't have coffee. I have tried all kinds of substitutions, even going so far as to pour whipping cream and real sugar into my coffee. No go. My friends have begged, pleaded and shamed me but still I persist. What do they put in that stuff, anyway?? and none of it is "food". Could be heroin.
Last year I made it two weeks before I gave in and enjoyed my morning coffee. This year - 3 days. Disgusting, I know.
