Things I like today… chapter 4.

 

I like…

This road sign we passed on a country lane.

Notice to salesmen – please move along.

 

 

 

I like…

Sitting on my deck reading,

And being quiet enough to have a few visitors drop by.

I like….

This kind of race.

I might get a little winded…

But at least I know I’ll be able to cross the finish line.

I like….

My fruit infuser pitcher.

I know I should drink gallons of water daily, but let’s face it…unless it’s toning down my bourbon?

I’m not really interested.

But chop up some fresh strawberries and let it sit overnight?

Quite tasty.

I’ve tried pineapple. Wonderful!

Mango? Meh.

Watermelon? No flavor at all.

Pear seemed like a good idea….

But it turned brown and slimy in mere hours… so no to pear.

(Don’t worry, it took me a minute to get it as well.)

 

I like…

This picture I took of my flower bed with a triple rainbow shadow.

Let’s Talk Chicken … Chapter 3.

 

If you missed the first two chapters of this riveting chicken series, catch up here:

Let’s talk chicken…

Let’s Talk Chicken… chapter 2.

Onward.

This could be a trick question as chickens often eat ticks, but we’ll proceed anyway.

Let’s start with some interesting chicken facts.

Quick recap – You can’t beat a chicken off the line unless it’s at night… and if it catches you? It will unleash it’s inner T Rex.

My advice?

Don’t race a chicken.

Quick recap – There’s no need to buy your chickens deodorant or a birthday cake.

Though wearing the hat can be quite stylish.

A 3 eyed chicken?

I’ve often thought having a third eye on the top of my head would be helpful, though it would be hard to find the right pair of sunglasses…

Okay, whether you’re a chicken fan or not this is fascinating stuff.

They can literally be asleep and awake at the same time. How frickin’ cool is that?

Heck, I could snooze and finish off that 12 part documentary series about Heinrich Schliemann at the same time!  (1)

So there you have it.

Never let it be said my blogs are not educational…

(1)   A few years ago I started watching a PBS documentary series on the search for ancient Troy.

Was it dry? Perhaps a wee bit…

Was it boring? Not to a history buff like me… but the husband fell asleep approximately 7 minutes into each and every episode.

If he was a chicken we could have discussed it later.

If I should disappear without notice…..

 

This is a general heads up to my friends and followers –

In case I fall off the grid without warning.

It seems I’m a wanted woman, and may have to go on the lamb very soon.

OnTheLamb

 

(That’s me trying to figure out how to kick the silly creature into gear)

The reason?

 I’ve been receiving some strange phone calls and may have to plan accordingly.

 

 

 

I have no idea what grievous crime I’ve committed….

Do the mattress people know I removed their tag?

Did the grocery store manager see me eat a grape?

 

i-dont-know-meme

 

But clearly things are about to get real.

And if the message wasn’t bad enough…. this call came in yesterday.

Time may be running out.

 

 

(For you youngins…  Attica prison?

 

attica-ft

 

The riot in 1971?

 

 

1398415831000-Attica123

 

 It was awful, 43 people died. Read your history!)

So please, if you’re questioned… don’t tell them I ate the grape.

And wish me luck as I make my escape.

I’ve never been much of  a runner.
