    Gamma's dog at work thread made me think of this.
    Here's my "office" this summer. 0606122121.jpg

    It is ballet season at the opera house, and my summer position has been running one of the follow spots out front. That's my feet in the bottom of the image. Probably about 100' over the orchestra floor.

    Being a fan of heights is what got me into this business in the first place! I scared the crap out of Mrs. Flatbedford at the Grand Canyon.

    I have seen it. Makes my job look like a step stool!
    Here's another from a few years ago. 0322081119.jpg

    There is a person standing right under me. Yes, OSHA inspector, I was wearing a harness.

    My wrench is on a lanyard when overhead.

    I can't be the only one here with a unique "office". Anybody else?

    Nice view. I don't have anything quite like that.

    I do have a work saying though:

    "I have worked with many tools over the years, but not the ones you use to fix things with."

    Begreen, is that a Humming bird feeder? If it is, do you get much traffic? I bought one for my wife and we haven't seen one yet.

    Yes it is. For some reason, we have so much hummingbird traffic this year that it's a bit overwhelming. We have two feeders and they have been emptying them twice a day since the ruffous arrived. At times it's a regular circus at the feeders with 3-4 birds feeding and others hovering or waiting nearby for an empty spot.

    If you put up a feeder, be sure to keep the sugar water fresh. In summer heat it should be changed out every other day. Just make small batches 1/2 cup batches until they show. And don't be dismayed if they don't show up at first. They need to discover your area. Our property has lots of bee and hummingbird friendly plantings which help attract them too. Right now the honeysuckle is in bloom. That's a favorite for them.

    If they don't show, it may be the feeder. We had the flying saucer type years ago and they didn't really like it. Now we have this style and it works well. http://amzn.to/KdhPBo Though if this keeps up I may have to go to the one quart size!
