"Oh, officer, I was just juggling my dieing hen, is that distracted driving?"
"Hmmmm...well....the Act doesn't say anything about driving with a dieing hen...."

Didn't get pulled over, but I was trying to come up with an excuse should it have happened.

RIP little Hetta. It is only right that she return home. Now God has another one to add to his flock.

"Sorry Officer. I am trying to get my poor very sick pet chicken to the vets."

Some officers would understand a pet chicken, others would not. Lucky you didn't have to find out.

Of course, I still have my Pet Rock...

Today was one of those sunny/cloudy days. I let the Girls out and the Saint Bernard (he's very good with the chickens--he's their guard dog). If I could figure out how to download the picture, I got a picture of him lieing on the ground surrounded by about 18 of the Girls. Some of them even hopped over him. It isn't a great picture--I couldn't go off the deck to get closer--I knew he'd get up and spoil the picture. In the sunlight, they all looked so nice--and it was such a nice image of my chicken-friendly dog taking care of the Girls.

Myrtle is concerned--she knows winter is coming. She has been coming to the patio door and asking to come in lately.

She doesn't want to be cooped up all winter.

Of course if your puppy ever got fleas, you know the girls would be grooming him. Just another source of food.

The Animal Planet often has a show called unusual friends. This sounds like a perfect pair for it. At least you know he is no "chicken dog!"

You should listen to Mrytle. She knows what the weather is going to be before humans do. And that includes the Big Chicken.

Scene: Big Chicken goes out to chicken coop to let Myrtle and the others out dressed in her lavender terrycloth bathrobe.

Door opens...Myrtle leads the way.

Big Chicken: "Myrtle! What happened? You're naked!"

Myrtle: "I'm not NAKED! I am MOLTING!"

Snicker-snicker in the background (the youngsters).

Myrtle: "Snicker all you want, but next year you'll lose your feathers, too."

Big Chicken: "Myrtle, I think you need to come and spend time in the house."

Myrtle: "Can I watch TV with you?"

Big Chicken: "Of course, but no CHOPPED or Hell's Kitchen. I don't want you keeping me awake because you're having nightmares."

Myrtle: "Deal if you make me cheese-coated popcorn."

Big Chicken: "Oh, Myrtle, of course I will."

Myrtle: "Coo-coo...I have you so well trained."

Scene fades to black as the sun sets...Myrtle is on the arm of the sofa being fed cheese-coated popcorn while watching The Good Wife...

Mrytle certainly does have the Big Chicken trained. She is one smart chicken. I bet when the deep freeze weather comes, you will find Mrytle in the Big House everyday getting real plump on cheese-coated popcorn. She is such a charmer.

I'm afraid that's decidedly not true. How would you fill ravioli with ragł for example - or sugo di pomodoro. Ravioli must be filled with something thicker, that will not disintegrate, and the sauce always on the outside!
