Thanks to everybody for their ideas! I forgot to mention that Tony and Daisy are Chihuahua's. Now that the kids are gone, they get all the attention. The X-pen is a great idea. I bet I could sew a netting to fit the top similar to a fitted sheet. You are right though - watching the birds is the best! My grand daughters like to lie in the hammock and watch the hummingbirds. We tied the feeder directly over it. Even the dogs enjoy the birds and will talk to them in this funny squeaky bark they do. We bought the lake lot at a tax auction for $300.00. It had a pole on it and was cleared. We thought it was 70X100ft, but when we had it surveyed it was 75X160ft. We can see the lake and the dam is a 3 minute walk. It was one of the best investments we ever bought. Next to the AS
That I bought for $3000.00. All the appliances worked, no leaks, good floor, the ac runs so cold you could hang swinging beef. All we did was clean her up. Every Friday night we head out only to come back on Monday. The dogs know that when the hamper comes out to get their leashes and wait at the door. They get so excited when we turn into the gate!
