WELCOME to the 2014 #AtoZ Blog Challenge
Inspired By My Pinterest Boards: This Year’s Category is GARDENING
If you have grandchildren, you remember many of the ‘priceless’ things they say. Let me introduce you to the Yellow Pincher. Picture this….a little boy, Andrew by name, coming to stay with his Grammy and Grandad. There is a round dining table where we look out on the deck and back garden. Attached to the railing is a bird feeder hanging from a wrought iron crook filled with thistle for the goldfinches. Andrew called the goldfinches, Yellow Pinchers. His Grandad tried to correct this mistake on several occasions.
“Andrew, say, Gold.”
“Andrew, say Finch.”
“Now say, Gold Finch.”
To this day we refer to these birds as yellow pinchers. The little boy grew up….he’s married now. Someday I’ll tell you about “We got troubles!”
