EDITOR:Recently the birds were attacking my wife's flower boxes. The things we tried to scare them away with did not work.
So, my wife gives me the assignment to find some "Bird Away." I headed for the local lawn and garden store where I found a clerk talking to a customer.
I told them my problem.
Solution: Customer says get a cat. Clerk says get a gun. Problem solved.
What's not to love about the U.P.?
