Jason and Amanda Joy Wells were thirty-something newlyweds who, two weeks after tying the knot in spring 2009, moved into their first home, a beautifully preserved 1949 one owner home filled with charming character (and lots of potential)...not to mention the giant workshop and all the fruiting trees and bushes in the back yard. This site is meant to document the evolution of this house into their home as well as all of the events, occasions and happenings in and around it.

Kitty T.V.

The window that looks out into our backyard is our cat's favorite hangout spot...because of all the birds. Jason recently picked up an Oklahoma bird field guide which stays on the dining room table near the window so we can look up all the birds that frequent the bird feeder that we liberated from the curb in front of someone's house last fall.
At one point I identified eight different bird species hanging out all at the same time: European Starlings, Common Grackles, Mourning Doves, Dark-Eyed Junkos, a Downy Woodpecker and a Red-Bellied Woodpecker, a House Finch, House Sparrows and Cardinals. There must have been over forty birds out there!
We just bought some suet for the woodpeckers and added a new type of seed mixture to keep everyone happy (including the cat).
