Myrtle and the others in the yard hear a clanging.

Myrtle: "What is that?"

So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen, good night,
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight.
So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen, adieu,
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu.

So long, farewell, Au'voir, auf wiedersehen,
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne
So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen, goodbye,
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye,
Good bye

Myrtle--oh-oh, Addie, PF, and the others will miss us, but our time has come, to simply say good-byyyyyyye.

Oh no! My heart is broken. I love you Mrytle, Eggatha and all you other girls. Don't forget me. I am your biggest fan! Please don't leave me.

For sure I'm going back to bed, now. And put my pillow over my head.

Pssst--PF, take that chicken feather pillow off you head. I've convinced the Big Chicken to stay on DC--how else could I be a virtual therapy chicken?] Funny thing happened the other day--The Big Chicken's Daddy (or would be her rooster?]) called her and left a message telling her that her Momma wanted to know how my job as a therapy chicken was working out. The Big Chicken called her Daddy back and told him that I hadn't actually gotten a flight suit nor was I actually a therapy chicken, but on DC, I was the virtual therapy chicken and that there were 37 or so pages of stories about me and the lesser hens. I think I saw tear in the Big Chicken's eye--she'd told her Momma (who has dementia...call it what you want) the week before that she hoped I could be a therapy chicken to go and visit people with Alzheimer's at the local nursing home but that the department of health is concerned I would pass AVIAN flu to the patients--excuse me! I take dirt baths every day!

The Big Chicken was happy that her Momma remembered that conversation.

It's really late for me to be up, but it's been really hot and humid--the Big Chicken felt sorry for me and brought me in the house for the night so I could cool off over the A/C vent. She's in the basement and forgot to turn off the computer. Pssst...don't tell her I can type.

Love,

Myrtle

P.S. I'd like a piece of cheese!

Hi Myrtle! Thank you for your kind words and reassurances, you are the best therapy chicken ever. The Department of Health are a bunch of ninnies.

Good to hear that Momma remembered the conversation, it must have meant something special for her to make it a memory. Dementia Stinks, big time!

I have provolone and swiss, which would you like?

SWISS! I can practice my vertical jumping (the chicken version of planking) if I can get my bhieak through one of the holes! Yes! Ummmph! Ummmmph! I hate planking! More cheese, please!

Big Chicken says that we've helped her deal with her Momma's dementia...she always says "who knew having chickens was so much fun!" (But I know that I'm her favourite!)

Goodnight, my sweet feathery friend. I'm off to bed and you should get some tucked head, too!

I am so sorry that your not going to be able to be a Therapy Chicken. Those silly people don't know the harm they may be doing to the elderly folks. But not to worry. You keep my heart beating everyday looking forward to hearing from you. And think of the joy you have already brought to Big Chicken's Momma.

And your secret of being able to type is safe with us here on DC. I don't think Big Chicken appreciates you enough and your talents. Take care Myrtle. We all love you.

Psst! You will find your cheese on the lowest shelf in the fridge. Can you open the door without any help?

Coo-coo--got it Addie. And, although "THEY" won't let me be a therapy chicken, I'm here for you as a virtual therapy chicken. Been here all along, it just took the Big Chicken awhile to twig to the idea I am a therapy chicken. She thought all I was good for was laying eggs--and I did (and still do--once in awhile) lay good eggs.

Love,
Myrtle
