Holt Grey White remains in South Austin Hospital. He is doing well after surgery and should be home very soon. He must eat six meals a day, since he can only have small portions; however, he can have almost anything that he wants. Jim Herrmann, of Mountain City, is in the hospital also, with came home on Saturday and is clots in his lungs. He is doing much doing very well. better and should be home again today or tomorrow. He sure scared Assistant City Administrator his wife Karen, the Wallace Middle School nurse and "better not do that again." So nice to see the sparkle back in Pearl Doherty as she is doing much better and getting around very well now.

'Bluebirds exude peace, joy and HOPE! It can't be explained, but you'll understand when you see a birdbath full of the red, white and (awesome) blue birds. That's the sight I've enjoyed in my backyard this week. Seeing a dozen or so splish- splashing on Sunday brought hope that bluebird families will winter right here in Mountain City. Over the past three years, as an effort has been underway to add more bluebird nestboxes in this area, bluebirds have been seen here and there just out from the city during the winter months. Now, they've discov- ered the food, shelter and water that's available here. Bluebirds live in large fami- ly groups during winter months, sometimes with several families together. In this area of the country, they do not "migrate." Rather, they find a spot close to their nesting area where they have the necessities of life. The oak trees here provide the shel- ter; insects are available almost all year long (provided they've not eliminated in non-natural ways); and, birdbaths will pro- vide a constant source of water. If you vcant toolace a blue- bird nestbox in your yard, con- tact me and I can get you in on the deal that Texas Bluebird Society offers in select areas at certain times - a free nestbox with a membership. (Since I'm president of the organization, it's always available here.) Household memberships are $15. A nestbox is no guarantee of nesting bluebirds, but you sure won't have them nest without one. They require a cavity in order to raise their young, and there are fw, if any, appropriate natural cavities in Mountain City. A nestbox might attract other wonderful small cavity-nesting birds such as wren s , titmice and chickadees. House Sparrows should be prevented from suc- cessful nestings because of the damage they bring to our native songbirds. In their competition for nesting space (and they don't need a cavity to nest as you know if you've seen them in Wal-Mart signs), they enter nestboxes and destroy eggs, nestlings and even any trapped adult. Species that nested north- ward are coming through now during fall migration. Look on the ground, in the birdbaths, in the trees, and up in the air. This past week, the JoAnn and John Keller will cel- ebrate their 51 st wedding anniver- sary on Sept. 12. Congratulations to a great couple who are so very willing to give of their time and tal- ents to helping others in our com- munity. Have you noticed that an old building on North Main Street is currently being tom down? Watch for something new to soon be built on the comer and to be the home of a Buda official. Mclntyres saw Yellow Warblers, Canada Warblers and Baltimore Orioles. One of our seven bird- baths attracted seven Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday. Listen for their beautiful song. Look in the air for migrating raptors, primarily hawks. The flight path near here for most raptors is about an hour's drive east, out towards Bastrop. Look all around for scorpi- ons.., anywhere and every- where. Nancy Waddell was all set for a relaxing bath.., this scene might have included can- dlelight and soft music.., when she saw that a scorpion had climbed into the bubbles ahead of her. Now, who has a Tidbit of the Week to top that one?!

Cotton harvest is in full swing and the harvest is one of the best I have seen in many years (that's quite a few).
