One For The Birds

If one is fortunate enough to join the ranks of nonagenarians and still possesses his mental faculties as well as physical prowess (although limited), he feels entitled to enjoy certain harmless hobbies. Years ago this nonagenarian became a fan of bird feeders. Tony's Finch Diner has been the target of a number of posts (see Birds, Finch Diner labels) over the years. It is now time to once again update the status of Tony's Finch Diner.

Tony's Finch Diner is again on the verge of bankruptcy. If there are any finches left in this world they have found better feeding grounds. St. Francis who is the greeter for Tony's diner has been in tears.  Where have all the finch gone? The last time I asked this question was 07/03/2012. At the time I blamed my diner problems on Romney. Holy cow! It was during campaign 2012. Could it be that finches stay away during the circus we call selecting Presidential candidates? Our political climate scares the hell out of me - why not the finch. There is also a rumor going around that Trump has built some kind of a wall to keep finches out of the USA. I doubt that. The last finch chirp I heard did not sound Mexican. Even an ass like Trump knows that birds fly over walls. Another rumor is that the Bernie Sanders' bombastic rhetoric is just too much -  even for a bird. By the way there is no truth to the rumor that the Clinton Foundation has offered to bail me out.

I doubt that there is a  connection between presidential campaigns and Tony's Finch Diner problems. After all, so far Campaign 2016 has been for the birds.
