If I catch anybody throwing anything at it, however, there is going to be trouble. I think I like this so much because I was way outbid on one at the last auction I went to. This one was a couple of dollars. It might have been cheaper (cheep-er? sorry) because one of the birds was missing a beak. I replaced it with the tip of a golf tee. That also pleased me.
If you are wondering about the sailors in the title of the post, here they are. I stopped at a thrift store on the way home from the sale and plucked this old pattern out of a box of junky ones. The feedsacks came from the sale, and I think we know how I feel about them.
