NEW DISTRICT FOR BROAD RIPPLE Recently the City-County Council map for Indianapolis was redrawn, moving Broad Ripple from District 3 to District 2. The boundaries were also changed. See the maps in full detail at http://bit.ly/1QjxjLx

The parking deck over the canal in 1988 as seen from the air during a special aerial photo tour of Broad Ripple. The start of the canal can be seen above the deck. Below the deck is the College Avenue canal bridge (College running left and right in this photo). Broad Ripple Avenue runs diagonally to the upper right in this photo. In the left center, you can see the old Shell station and apartments that were recently razed to make way for the Fresh Thyme Market and Coil Apartments. In the lower right corner, are Roselyn Bakery and Bob’s Marathon that were razed for the mixed-use parking structure.

Everything you always wanted to know about the canal... By Alan Hague


Part Eleven For those readers just discovering this series on the canal now in its 10th part, I will explain why the canal is important and why the Gazette is doing this series. The dam that created the Central Canal was built on the White River in 1836 and the Town of Broad Ripple grew up around it. It is why we are here today. For years the canal has supplied the City of Indianapolis with 60% of its fresh water which is processed for our clean water supply.

A little background for this segment... In 1958 a concrete parking deck was constructed over the canal. It completely obscured the canal from the firehouse to about halfway to the College Avenue bridge. I remember a parking lot arm that raised either to let cars in or out, but I don’t remember which. I also don’t know if they charged to park there (I wasn’t born until 1960!) In 1999 it was torn down and the canal was restored to its original glory. Over the years several have sent in photos. If any readers have photos of the parking deck, please let me know. It is important to preserve as much Broad Ripple history as possible. “Were you around for the parking deck that was over the canal?” I asked Sarah Holsapple, Media Relations for Citizens. “No,” she answered, “what year was that? No, I wasn’t here.” “It came down in 1999,” I replied. “This is them taking the canal deck down,” as I pointed at a picture I brought. “The deck is in here too,” said Ed Malone, Director of Water Production for Citizens, pointing at another picture I brought. “Do you remember the parking deck?” I asked Ed. “Yes, I remember the parking deck,” he answered. I showed several pictures. “This is them taking it down in 99. I have an aerial picture of it too, you can see the cars on the canal here. Here is one of them building it.” Ed said, “Actually we liked the parking deck being there. The reason being is we didn’t get the weed growth under the parking deck.” “No sunlight!” added Edwin Morris, Operations and Maintenance Supervisor for Citizens. “It was pretty long,” I explained while pointing to the aerial photo, “ it went from here (Guilford) all the way down to here (half way to College) along the canal.” Sarah exclaimed, “ Wow! Interesting. So, there was a lot more parking in Broad Ripple!”

Taking down the canal deck in 1999. This is looking to the north east. The pickup truck in the right center is next to the old Future Shock. To the right of that is the fire station.

Ed answered, “Oh yeah, there was a lot more parking there.” “Do you know who took the deck down?” I asked. “Who was responsible? Was it the city…or DPW? Do you remember anything about that?” Ed answered, “I don’t remember how that decision was made. I know we were involved in the decision, but I was not party to that.” Sarah added, “And when you say we, that is way before Citizens owned the water utility starting in 2011.” “That’s correct,” said Ed. “At the time, we heard it was too expensive to fix because it was crumbling,” I added. Ed said, “It was [crumbling]. It wasn’t a utility structure (meaning belonging to a public utility), it was a city parking structure.” I remember the concrete deck was in such bad shape that you could see the canal through large holes. I think sections were roped off for safety. I remember a parking study being performed showing that there was a surplus of available parking spots in the Village and that the removal of the parking deck would not be injurious to local businesses. I believe that study counted the spots available in every parking lot and along every street in Broad Ripple. They compared that to the estimated number of visitors. Parking in Broad Ripple has long been a topic of conversation!

Poetic Thoughts


by C.W. Pruitt II

Town with Nora Spitznogle

A Poem In A Poem Below is a poem I wrote on December 13, 2015. This poem is a first for me because it features a poem inside a poem. The poem and the poem inside of a poem pay tribute to the cross-over dribble of Tim Hardaway. He perfected the move while a college basketball player at UTEP. His 2-step move featured a hitch which would leave the defender a pile of goo upon the basketball court.

The UTEP 2-Step of Tim Hardaway Before Alley Iverson ever executed his jazz maestro-level cross-over-dribble in the NBA was the UTEP 2-Step of Tim Hardaway

The Underhills – Indy Folk Series Saturday, February 20 615 W. 43rd St. ticket prices below, doors 6:15/show 7:00

The intimate Indy Folks series is housed in the Unitarian Universalist Church. The concerts are in an intimate listening room venue featuring superb acoustics, art on the walls, and candles on the tables – a true folk series vibe. Light refreshments, including wine and beer, are available prior to the concert and during intermission. The Underhills weave together guitars, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and bass to create an original sound that is evocative of old-time folk and bluegrass, while experimenting with new ideas and grooves not typically heard on these instruments. Inspired by the wooded hills of southern Indiana, this six-piece acoustic band combines rich harmonies and virtuosic instrumental ability to carve out their own niche in bluegrass music. Tickets at the Door: Adults: $15; Students/Age 65 and up: $10; Age 12 and under: free.

Magic Johnson after getting annihilated by the rookie’s UTEP 2-Step said, “There is a new sheriff in town and his name is Tim Hardaway. That cross-over this kills!”

My love of Chad Mills’ music is no secret. I wandered into Birdy’s one evening and was lucky enough to hear him play – and it happened to be the album release show for 2 Places at Once. Eight years later he is launching his ninth studio album. To celebrate this milestone, he is hosting an album release party at Theatre on Square. The evening promises to be full of music and storytelling, as Chad shares songs from the new album. Chad Mills has been performing live music around the Central Indiana music

2040 E. 54th Street Indianapolis, IN 46220 answers on Page 14 The winners of the February 2nd quiz were Hey, Peyton, What’s The Biggest City In Nebraska? with 16 points. The winners of the Best Team Name Competition were Strangers W/ Candy. The questions for this quiz were created for us by Dean Knapp, for which we are grateful Movie Bit-Parts 1. In the 1973 movie American Graffiti, Richard Dreyfuss’ character is smitten from afar by a beautiful and mysterious blonde cruising in a white T-Bird convertible. What actress, who would later become a breakout star in a popular television sit-com, appearing on the show from 1977 to 1980, played the part of “Blonde In The T-Bird”? 2. In an early scene of the classic 1939 movie Gone With The Wind, Scarlett O’Hara flirts with the Tarleton Twins, young squires from a nearby plantation. One of the twins was played by the actor who would go on to star as Superman on TV. What was his name? 3. In the 1946 movie It’s A Wonderful Life, actor Carl Switzer plays a young man who’s jealous that Mary, played by Donna Reed, is dancing with George, played by Jimmy Stewart, at the school dance, and so pushes the button that opens the floor of the gym, which drops them into the pool underneath it. The actor was more famous for playing one of the Our Gang characters as a child actor earlier in his career. What character did he play? 4. A well-known actor had a brief, uncredited role in one scene in the 1967 movie The Graduate. In the scene a landlord of a college rooming house is investigating the noisy falling out that Dustin Hoffman’s character is having with Katherine Ross’ character in one of his rooms. The actor in question appears behind the landlord, played by Norman Fell, and utters his only lines: “Shall I get the cops? I’ll get the cops”. He later won the Best Actor Oscar in 1978 for his role in The Goodbye Girl. Who is he?

scene for the last fifteen years – a good chunk of that in Broad Ripple. In 2015 the part-time troubadour performed 140 times! In December, Chad earned the first place finish in the One Voice, One Guitar competition hosted at Birdy’s which featured some of the area’s best songwriters. The lineup for the evening is: 7 PM Doors open, 8 PM - Megan Hopkins featuring Dave Vogt, 8:45 pm - Chad Mills Each ticket holder will receive a copy of Chad’s new album when you arrive. I can’t wait to get my hands (and ears) on a copy.

Indianapolis Children’s Choir founder recognized

The Indiana Music Education Association (IMEA) presented the 2016 Outstanding Hoosier Musician Award to Henry Leck, the founder and artistic director of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir (ICC), in January. The IMEA honored individuals in three categories including Outstanding Hoosier Musician, Outstanding Administrator and Outstanding Indiana Music Educator at their annual IMEA Professional Development Conference last week in Fort Wayne. Leck, an internationally recognized choral director, is professor emeritus and recently retired director of choral activities at Butler University aside from his duties with ICC. Under his direction, ICC has grown from two small choirs to one of the largest choral organizations of its kind, with nearly 20 choirs and many music classes serving more than 5,000 young people from 18 months to 18 years of age each year. Approximately 2,500 children are enrolled in the ICC’s weekly rehearsals and classes, and the other 2,500 receive programming or resources from its Innovations initiative, which directly supports music in schools. ICC singers have traveled to and performed on six continents and in some of the world’s most recognizable venues and events, including Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, the Super Bowl, the NCAA Women’s Final Four, the FINA World Swimming Championships and mass at the Vatican. Leck announced his retirement in July and plans to step down from his podium after the 30th Anniversary Concert on April 30th of this year. Josh Pedde, the current assistant artistic director, will step into the role after working seamlessly with Leck for the past 15 years. During this past year, Leck has been recognized by the National Association for Music Education with the Lowell Mason Award, by University High School with the Trailblazer Award for Commitment to Creativity, and by Music for All with their announcement of Leck as their 2018 National Choir Festival artistic director.

Meet Bobby Plump And Help Save These Historic Films Of The Famous 1954 Championship Game

Film historian Eric Grayson of Indianapolis is known for his skill at preserving many rare films. His last-minute efforts have preserved the only known copies of many films that would otherwise be lost to us forever. Please help save these films important to Indiana in our Bicentennial year. Eric’s Kickstarter campaign, at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1622418422/save-the-1954milan-basketball-films, will be the focus of the fundraiser being offered by Plump’s Last Shot. We must reach a goal of $7,500 in about 20 days’ time. Please help! Admission to the fundraiser for this Kickstarter, on Sunday, February 21, from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., is $50. Plump’s Last Shot restaurant and bar is located at 6416 Cornell Avenue in Broad Ripple (www.

plumpslastshotbroadripple.com, phone 317-257-5867.) Bobby Plump and Plump’s Last Shot are generously supporting this effort to preserve these films. This time, this “last shot” at saving films that are rapidly disintegrating will, if you help reach the Kickstarter goal, preserve the Milan films that have been stored at Milan High School since its amazing victory over the much-larger Muncie Central in the 1954 boys’ state basketball championship, immortalized in the film, Hoosiers. In real life, Bobby Plump threw a “last shot” with about a second to play. The ball went into the basket and Milan won by two points. The character Jimmy Chitwood, playing for tiny Hickory High School in the film, also makes that last shot. Both the 1954 game and the Hoosiers game were filmed at Butler’s Hinkle Fieldhouse. You can go right now to the Kickstarter site and make a pledge of at least $50 for admission to the party. Bring proof of that pledge (you’ll receive an acknowledgement from Kickstarter) to Plump’s. And, for every $50 you pledge, you get one entry into a raffle for some great prizes. Also, if you want to up your pledge at the party, we’ll have it set up so you can do that. For your $50, you also get to have a photo taken with Bobby. There will be a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres, as well as an opportunity to make online pledges to Kickstarter at the event. RSVPs are not necessary. Just come by for a great party for a great cause! If the goal is not met, the pledges are returned, and these films will not be preserved. Eric estimates they will exist, in their current fragile condition, for another six months. On the other hand, the restoration will save them for an estimated 200 to 400 years. The archivally sound 16mm film will be stored at the Indiana University Moving Images Archive. Pledge now! See you on the February 21st at Plump’s Last Shot!

Students to get free FAFSA filing help at College Goal Sunday

Financial aid professionals will be volunteering at 42 sites in Indiana to help college-bound students and their families open the door to financial aid during College Goal Sunday. The event is set for 2 p.m. (local time), February 21, 2016. The free program assists Indiana students in filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA form is required for students to be considered for federal and state grants, scholarships and student loans at most colleges, universities and vocational/technical schools nationwide. The FAFSA MUST be filed by March 10 to be eligible for Indiana financial aid. College Goal Sunday is so important since completing this required form correctly and by the deadline is sometimes perceived to be complicated and time consuming. In less than one afternoon at a College Goal Sunday event, students and their families can get free help and file the form online. Students should attend College Goal Sunday with their parent(s) or guardian(s), and parents’ should bring completed 2015 IRS 1040 tax returns, W-2 Forms and other 2015 income and benefits information. Students who worked last year should bring their income information as well. Students 24 years of age or older may attend alone and bring their own completed 2015 IRS 1040 tax return, W-2 Form or other 2015 income and benefits information. Students and parents are encouraged to apply for their U.S. Department of Education FSA IDs at fsaid.ed.gov before coming to the event. Volunteers will walk through the online form line-by-line and answer families’ individual questions as needed. All sites offer FAFSA online capabilities and many have Spanish interpreters.

The background of The Gazette:

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post #3. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and is Assistant Band Director at BRMHS. As a board member of the BRHS Alumni Assn he is an organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1930’s through the 1950’s held the first Sunday each June at Riviera Club. For many years, I have wanted a newspaper that answered my questions. Where did that store go? Why were those people digging on the corner? When is the BRMHS Homecoming Parade? What happens at that business? The Gazette is that paper. You will get an unbiased look into what is happening in Broad Ripple because I have no financial interests in Broad Ripple, nor am I affiliated with any of its organizations. I am simply a resident who is passionate about the area. You will also read about the history of Broad Ripple. This history continues to expand as I uncover new sources of stories and photos. The Gazette’s area of coverage has no real boundaries. Historically, the town of Broad Ripple extended down to 54th Street. The goal of the Gazette is to share with readers stories that are within 10 minutes or so from the heart of Broad Ripple - covering events in the Midtown region. Also, Broad Ripple is one of the seven Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/ recently opened business or long-time business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you. -Alan Hague

New group formed to get bus line off College Avenue As reported in my column last edition, neighborhood groups have raised concerns about IndyGo’s plan to run the new Red Line Bus Rapid Transit line along College Avenue. A recently formed group called College Avenue Indy has placed a billboard at 54th and College. “Stop the Red Line” it proclaims, citing congestion, wasted tax dollars and over-development. They note the City will hold a hearing on the matter on February 17. They do not list who is funding them nor the names of any individual on their website nor how to contact them. Bus rapid transit would be a new highfrequency, limited-stop service that is being used in other cities along high usage routes. The Red Line is planned to run from the University of Indianapolis, north to downtown, up to Broad Ripple, and then, eventually, on to Carmel. Requests for Federal funding for the line is pending. In a city plagued by a bare bones transit system, it’s disappointing to see opposition to the one bright spot on the horizon. While waiting for the Red Line, be sure and take the #17 and #18 from Broad Ripple to downtown. You’ll save on parking and be able to read while you ride. Fare just $1.75 and buses run every 30 minutes during the week.

Skunk cabbage up at Holliday Park Norma Wallman and I are scouting out for skunk cabbage, the first plant to bloom in spring, which is starting to bloom in Holliday Park. The plant generates it own heat (to melt snow) and has large green flowers (which smell like a skunk to some). Also in bloom is the witch hazel tree. So, spring is around the corner and in just a month hepatica hill will be full of hepaticas. Can the trout lilies be far behind. Don’t miss a winter hike at the Park—an area gem. Read more about the plant in Wallman’s book, Wildflowers of Holliday Park. She photo by Bill Malcolm will also lead a hike in the park in Norma Wallman with the witch hazel. April for those wanting to learn more about the spring wildflowers. Freshen your houseplant selection Need some more green for your house or apartment? I can always use some more house plants and always enjoy the house plant sale at the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired greenhouse. It runs March 3rd (noon to 5), 4th (noon to 5), and 5th (9am to 3 pm). The last word on civil rights for LGBT The state legislature and Governor have spent the 3rd legislative session debating LGBT issues. No matter which side you are on, it’s amazing that again this session it was the number one topic. Worse, they kicked the can to 2017 – despite the fact that this is an election year and you would think they would like to get it off the table. Worse, a survey by Visit Indy showed that Indy was losing convention business due to the RFRA fall out. If Utah can pass a bill (as they did 2 years ago with support from the Mormon Church), certainly Indiana should be able to figure it out. Indeed, the Indiana Chamber and large businesses throughout the state strongly supported civil rights protections. Indiana should not continue with a self-imposed black eye. RFRA was bad last year but this year’s non-actions ripped the bandage off the wound. Indiana can do better. Upcoming • February 27 – Sap to Syrup Day at Holliday Park. 12:30 and 2:00 pm to journey around the trails learning all about making maple syrup. Try a syrup taste test, complete a craft, and enjoy a delicious Sugar Maker’s Sundae (trust us, you’ll love it!). Tours will depart every fifteen minutes, meet in the lobby. $7/person, preregistration required by calling the Holliday Park Nature Center at 327-7180 or visiting www.hollidaypark.org

WEATHER DEFYING WINE and FOOD It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day in Broad Ripple without a bit of snow and the Perk Up/Brotgarten Valentine’s Day Dinner. 24 lucky guests braved the blustery weather to enjoy an enchanted evening of food, wine, music (Kudos to NCHS Jazz Trio “Groove In”) and another unique, hand-crafted Valentine from Alice’s husband Innacio. Crush & Brew provided the wine selections that included a crisp dry German Riesling, an earthy Cabernet Sauvignon, and the hands down favorite, a bold rich Malbec from Argentina that was perfectly paired with Alice’s hearty beef ragout. She and Jeanette create a variety of sweet and savory breads, pastries, muffins and goodies every day. Plus breakfast and lunch sandwiches. But this yearly meal showcases their limitless culinary capabilities. The theme of the meal reflected an AsianGerman Island getaway with flavors and colors that not only excited diner’s taste buds, but elicited a gleeful giggle from the creative and thoughtful presentation of each plate. Guests were welcomed with a nonalcoholic punch, a trio of juices touched with caramel and served over cinnamon crushed ice. Shrimp ceviche with avocado and mango followed, then a luxurious and aromatically exotic carrot orange bisque. A refreshing daikon-Fuji apple salad with yuzu dressing cleansed the palate, before the main course arrived: a rich and satisfying beef ragout accompanied by a heart shaped polenta cake and soy glazed baby bella mushrooms. Baskets of freshly baked Brotgarten baguettes were used to sop up the hearty tomato based sauce leaving 24 members of the “clean plate club”. Rounding out the evening was dessert, a cheery plate with a swath of sweet curry mousse surrounding milk chocolate cups filled with caramelized bananas and coconut. Perk Up’s house roasted coffees and cups of espresso were served as guests readied for the truly “priceless” portion of the evening, a serenade from Circle City Sound and Innacio’s incredible hand cut, three dimensional Valentines housed in a hand made paper boxes. The ladies are taking reservations now for next year’s dinner. And you can always stop by Perk Up/Brotgarten to enjoy their house roasted coffees, freshly baked breads (including new coconut/chocolate German pastry and Sourdough Jalapeno Cheddar bread!) and goodies and the Sunday Kaffeeklatsch. www.perkupindy.com Jill A. Ditmire is an Omnimedia Wine Specialist who shares wit and wisdom nationwide in print, TV and radio, and is also an AWS-certified wine judge.

Clue: C equals N Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can – but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. Let’s start with the easy puzzle. We will try to put a 9 in the right section of the top row which contains 2-3-4-8. The 9 in the left section of the top row eliminates the space to the right of the 2. The 9 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the left of the 8. The 9 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces above and below the 3. The only place left is above the 8. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Historic Ad

13 Feb 19 - Mar 3, 2016

This ad for Sutho Suds appeared in 1946. The “hidden” location of this old business was recently shown as the signs were removed one by one from the now defunct Double 8 Grocery headquarters, south east of Broad Ripple, at 46th and the Fair Train tracks near Keystone. The building (top photo) has been for sale and is being cleaned up. First, the Double 8 sign came down revealing the Seven-Eleven Grocery office and warehouse sign (middle photo). Next, that sign came down revealing the sign engraved into the limestone facade for Sutho-Suds (lower photo). I did some research and found that it was a company that made synthetic soap - “A post-war miracle - Perfected during the war for vital war uses”.

Gettin’ Ripped in Ripple by Laura Minor

Broad Ripple Brewpub Quiz Answers (Questions on page 5)

H2O when it’s Cold! This article is probably coming to you a bit late as winter is likely coming to a close in the next month or so (which my guess is many of you are thankful for). However, the topic idea came to me due to our recent family ski trip to Copper Mountain in Colorado. With the exception of this year, the past two years I fell ill for about 24 hours due to what I believe to be dehydration. If you are a regular reader, you may recall an article last spring addressing my horrible experience with a kidney stone for the same reason during my training for Boston Marathon. So, AGAIN this one is learning from my mistakes. After that incident I have drastically changed my ways of drinking too little water for my activity level. When most of us think of the word dehydration we typically associate it with heat and summer. But in actuality, the winter moisture can be drained from the body more easily and leave you dehydrated. Here are several facts that I learned about winter dehydration which will hopefully persuade you to drink up when it’s chilly!! • In cold weather more moisture is lost through respiratory evaporation. Humans lose 1 pint of water a day through breathing alone, and this increases in winter. • The hormone that triggers our sense of thirst reacts differently when we are exposed to cold weather. So in general, people don’t drink as much as they should in the winter. • In order to feel thirsty, your body has a mechanism that is often triggered by sweating, leading to your body demanding more fluid by feeling thirsty. However in cold weather our body reacts differently and you don’t feel as thirsty, leading most to drink less water. • When wrapped up in lots of layers it is normally more difficult to tell how much you’re sweating and how dehydrated you are becoming. • In a dry or high-altitude setting, your sweat will turn right into vapor instead of forming on the skin. For instance, if you have been skiing and see someone steaming, then their sweat has already turned to water vapor. • In cold weather, your body has to work harder to humidify the air you breathe and to warm it up, meaning that you need to drink more water and eat more if you are outdoors. • In my case to boot, cold weather makes me crave COFFEE which has caffeine… which is a diuretic leading to additional fluid loss. • Lastly, if you are engaging in physical activity such as skiing, running, snowshoeing, this exponentially raises the need to drink more water! I recently purchased a “camelback” from a local running store which is essentially a backpack with a water bladder and a hydration hose. It is awesome! So, don’t lay off the aqua in the chilly temps, keep your H2O intake the same if not more than when it’s toasty! Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit.

The Broad Ripple Village Association recently held a meeting to plan the Village’s activities for the upcoming Indianapolis Bicentennial celebration in August at Broad Ripple Park.

by Brandt Carter What I Learned! Every once in a while someone will ask, “What have you learned?” Whether from a class, a life-lesson, a fight, a book, “what you have learned” is significant. Because of my store and my hobby of birdfeeding, I mused about what I have learned from birds. So here goes! • • • • • • •

• • • • •

“The early bird gets the worm” I love being first so I can get my choice! I observed how the birds eat at my feeder and wish I could learn the lesson they display so perfectly: eat small meals and eat only when you are hungry. Eat what is good for you is another message. You won’t see them eating candy, drinking pop or coffee or having cocktails. No, they love seeds, berries, suet, and peanuts. Sing your heart out is a great lesson. When you are awake, make some noise, don’t be silent, engage, and sing or speak beautiful words like the birds music. They only scold when there is an enemy in their territory. Go for the male with the best nest. This is a lesson I observed later in life, but I never fail to share this lesson with young women. A male wren will carefully build multiple nests, and the female will choose the perfect one. Go south for the winter. Migration is not shared by all birds, but only by the ones who nest in the south or need the warmth for survival. I wish I could go to the sunny south more often. Feed and take care of your young. Dad may help every so often, but the mom is usually the major caregiver. They don’t depend on handouts or substitutes (cat birds don’t practice this!). They are ferocious when it comes to taking care of their eggs and young. Nature has reliable laws…follow them. Fly fast when in danger. Birds rarely stay for the fight. Keep clean. Watch a bird dust up in the drive way or take a dunk in a birdbath. This helps their feathers stay in condition. Push your kids out of the nest when it is time. You have never seen a teenage or adult bird living with their parents. And the birds do push, they don’t ask! Be proud of who you are. You have never seen a cardinal trying to be a hawk or an owl.

These wisdoms are all observable in our backyard and at our birdfeeders. What lessons in life have you learned? Share them with child, and enjoy their delight when they find out you may have learned them from a bird, or a cat, or a dog.
