FARE THEE WELL

Hope arrived yesterday. Our neighbor's granddaughter came over to play. Two heads are always better than one. These giggly girls decided to surprise me by collecting the eggs. They came in the house with their shirt hems pulled up into a basket and filled with eggs. What the dear girls did not know was we had placed guinea fowl eggs under a broody hen for hatching. How the girls got those eggs out from under the big old red broody hen is well beyond my understanding. I tried not to over react and we carefully put the eggs back in the nest while the hen tried to kill ME.

Tomorrow three more grandchildren arrive for a visit. We will have five next week. And there you have the reason for the title of this post "Fare Thee Well" as I step into the phone booth and change into my Super Granny cape and costume. Oh if only we had the California three as well.

The girls meant well and it must have been difficult to not show anger at their goof. You handled it wisely, but the broody hen did not. I'm glad you survived her beak.

P. S. My cartoons that you couldn't see yesterday are now visible, but I have posted a new article and you will have to scroll down to see them.

Perhaps you should have had the girls put the eggs back. They must of had a secret technique. Good Luck to you Super Granny as you fight for justice and the American Way! Have fun!!

Good luck to you. I feel challenged when I just have the great-niece and great-nephew for the day, lol. Now we have added sweet Layla to the mix, but I'm looking forward to all the fun times grandbabies bring. Enjoy yours SuperGranny.

Glad the hen didn't attack!

You will be so tired after they leave that you will not be able to blog! (Won't you?)

I think you also need a tiara.

Have fun!

I wish you well, I really do. But most of all, I'm glad it's not ME! I'm too old and too crotchety and too stuck in my ways.

Rachel said...
