    Sounds good. Try the Dickel if you can find it. Vanilla and smokey oak finish. Cut well with water. I used to drink Old Overholt, still will, but prefer George.

    I keep the barn swallows from building in my shop and porches with a stuffed raccoon toy. Just hang it where they want to build. After a few passes they move on to "safer" places.
