Food for thought...

Hey everyone! This year I want to:
  • Crow when the urge hits me.
  • Strut my stuff.
  • Spread my wings and try to fly.
  • Pucker and peck those I love.
  • Show head and tail up-attitude is everything.
  • Scratch the dirt and see what comes up.
  • Say what I feel and let the feathers fly.
  • And yes... treat myself to fried foods every once in a while:@)
How about you, are you ready to do something exciting in 2012?
Have a happy day:@)


  1. All I Need To Know I Learned From My Chickens

    Wake up early, stay busy
    Rest when you need to, but always stay alert.
    Visit you favorite places every day.
    Scratch out a living.
    Routine is good.
    Plump is good.
    Don't ponder your purpose in life - your brain is too small.
    Accept the pecking order and know you enemies.
    Weed your garden.
    Look after your children-
    sit on them if necessary.
    Take them for walks, show them the little things and talk constantly.
    Make a nice nest - share it with friends.
    Brag on your accomplishments.
    Protect your nest egg.
    Test your wings once in a while.
    Squawk when necessary.
    As you age, demand respect.
    Leave a little something for those who care about you.
    Chase butterflies.

  6. In Carbondale, Illinois .. our city council is debating allowing residents to have chickens in their yards. If you all would send me those smart chickens you are talking about ... I'd take them to the city council meeting! Happy New Year!

  15. I love the way this is written! I think I like the "scratch the dirt and see what comes up" the best.

  16. I just spewed tea all over my laptop. What a funny post!


  17. I hope this wise old chicken doesn't end up in someone's stew pot. This was really funny and a great way to start the day. I hope you have a fabulous day. Blessings...Mary

  18. A friend of mine has chickens. He lets them out each afternoon to stroll and scratch and they are so funny to watch. This made me smile. hugs, Linda
