651 – Affection For Objects…But not Pigeons

I don’t really hate pigeons. But I am now engaged in a battle with them. I had put one band of re-useable cable ties around the bird table quite a while ago, and for a time it did flummox the pigeons – didn’t stop the squirrels or the smaller birds. The pigeons are now completely used to it, and although they have to flap around a bit, it appeared to be well within their abilities.

Hah! I though, I’ll get them – I’ll put another band around. That’ll stop them. Well, it did – for about an hour and a half. When I came down mid morning to make a cup of tea, there were two of them chomping away. Well we will just have to try something else.

Do you have favourite pens? I do. Are you sorry when they run out? I am. When you drop the pen in to the bin (with reluctance I add – I have kept empty pens safe, not wanting to throw them away) do you say “Thank you for your service”? I do. I know it is utterly ridiculous but I can’t help it.

Strangely, just thinking about it, I don’t think I feel the same way about other inanimate objects, except perhaps all my computers. Probably, it is through writing I have a special relationship with pens? They are after all, one of the prime means of expression. Plus of course this blog.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
