Woody Wood Pecker and a give away

This is what happens to your tree when Woody Woodpecker makes a visit and not to a theater near you. For months I kept hearing something banging out in the back yard of our home. It sounded like my neighbor was building something, so I didn't really pay attention to it. Then about 2 weeks ago, I was out walking the dogs and heard it again, only it sounded like it was coming from our back drive way. I quietly walked down there and looked up and sure enough, there was Woody Woodpecker in all his glory..having a great time destroying our tree. This is the first time I have ever seen a wood pecker...the cartoon yes, but a real live one....NO! Believe me when I saw what he had done to this beautiful tree, I wanted to shoot him and stuff him for the mantle! I have to admit, he sure was beautiful, but the damage he had done will cost me a ton of money to have the tree cut down. I guess there are disadvantages to living in the country and this is one of them! I am hoping that Woody is on his way elsewhere and I won't be seeing him anytime soon.

I will be having the first of two giveaways starting on the 24th of March. The first one, I am participating with Sandi at A Legacy of Stitches and her Hopping down the Bunny Trail - Good Eggs giveaway, please come back on the 24th of March to see what I will be giving away and how to participate.

Till then,

Omigosh, your woodpeckers are brutal! Ours are small here in New England and they leave small, neat holes - but lots and lots of them.
