Thanks guys. I miss it every time I leave!! It's kind of a catch 22 really. I can't wait to be there permanently but don't wanna rush getting that old to quick... lol

For now I enjoy it on the weekends and my parents are there enjoying it as well. I have my own built in caretakers and workers!! LOL...

Beautiful! I'd like to put a house next to our pond, at the farm.. (But no $$)
Looks like a great place to kick back and enjoy life!

Great looking place, RC! I like the floating feeder a lot more now that I've had ants invade of couple of my shore based feeders.

Won't the fish eat the ants when the feeder throws them out with the food.

Probably, but the ants swarm around the feeder and make the area no-go territory, especially for kids. This is really annoying since one of the infested feeders is on my dock... mad

I have a fire ant mound about 10 ft from my feeder. I occasionally try to kill them but have been pretty unsuccessful. For some reason they have never really bothered us or gotten into the feeder. Not sure why.

I had that problem but Esshup (Scott) suggested a product call Tanglefoot that you place onthe legs of the feeder and the ants can't/won't cross it. It is a pate that Works good for me but it is a little sticky/messy if you accidentaly touch it.

RC, ya don't need ta worry about gettin old too fast, it just happens.
About 5 yrs ago I met a gal and as we were talkin she asked how old I was. Told her 61 and she said she couldn't believe that. I told her I didn't understand it myself. Good luck.
