When I wake up screaming tonight, you're gonna have to hold me until I get back to sleep.

When should I expect you over?

I am on my way. I will sing you to sleep with "All Through The Night."

My chickens eat almost everything (pigs with wings), but they don't have teeth!

Most definitely, as long as you don't try to feed them rubberbands!

I am now thinking of using the ladder technique that is used to construct Norwegian sweaters to take some old sweaters and make them into "chicken coats." Faster than knitting them...especially if I use my serger to go between the lines. I didn't have much planned between Jan 1 and 23...time to make chicken coats (and panties--I've been picking the chickens up several times a day now that the weather is cold--cuddling them inside my coat, rubbing their feet and combs). They seem fine-egg production is the same as it was before winter arrived, but I worry about them being cold! I don't want to go out in the morning and discover frozen chickens...

I have never known chickens that were so loved.

Friends used to say they wanted to come back as one of my dogs, now they want to be my reincarnated chickens. I've dragged the "mercedes benz" sewing machine out, picked out some old sweaters I was planning to donate to the GW, and now am working on "coats" for them. I used to use the MB sewing machine to make dog beds, bandanas, etc., now I'm using it for "chicken clothes!" How deep have I fallen?
