HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW?
Ron mentioned that one of my roosters appeared to be limping. It turned out to be Daryl. Somehow our oldest rooster had managed to tangle in some string and hobble himself. You would think it was easy to catch a rooster with his legs hooked together but never underestimate a feisty fowl with adrenaline surging. He managed to escape me until he let down his guard and took shelter in the hen house. I walked in with the net and, smiling, closed the door behind me. He spied me and (second mistake) dove for a nesting box. It was simple then to grab him and hold him until Ron could get the scissors and clip the string. Each time I see him I have to ask, "How do you like me now?" I could swear he wears a look of adoration:)
There is even more going on inside the hen house but I don't have pictures yet. Mr. Gibson the hen (now known as Gibson) has hatched one chick and has two others about to enter the world. More of that story later.
Up, up and away! Carmen's sketchbook has gone to Miami once again. It first spanned west coast to east coast then found it's way to the Central U.S. Now it has gone east again. Aren't you curious about what goes on behind these sketchbook covers? This one is especially tempting with the tassels showing at the bottom. Monique's (aka Holland's) wonderful picture was also in Carmen's book and I added my offering before sending it off to Valeria. We all should be receiving the third book of the project this week. I cannot wait to see Serena's. Each cover opens to great artistic surprises.
