Thinking drumsticks...

A chicken in a thong would be silly.

Silkies! If you ever want a pet chicken---- this is the breed! Someone gave us one, a white one which we named Veronica. We couldn't put her in with the laying hens cuz they'd peck her to death so she had the run of the place.

She decided that when it started to get dark she had to come inside, running back and forth outside the kitchen patio door. So plaintively that we finally brought her in, put a plastic cover over a small table in the kitchen, put a large basket with a handle on it and an old towel under her nether end.

She would stay there all night and never move. If I was late getting up I would hear her plunk down on to the kitchen floor and I'd find her pacing back and forth at the door wanting to get out!

She was a delight but sadly a neighbor's dog got to her and killed her!

I've been going through a bunch of the many tens of thousands of recipes I've clipped and saved over the decades. Recipes that, when I read them closer, I will never invest the time making. Slowly but surely I'll have all my recipes sorted and organized before I die. I plan on living to 100. Wait, do I hear you laughing? I've got long genes in my family line: a great-aunt to 102, a couple great uncles into their mid-90s, two aunts on Mom's side and one on Dad's also into their 90s. Hmm, starting to sound like I'll have plenty of time to sort recipes...
I was beginning to wonder if I'd be a grandma, too...then I was bombarded all at once.

CG, I've been trying to go through recipes and re-copy them too, but I just barely get started and it just seems like such a monumental chore. I know they'll never get done if I don't just do it, and I do want to, but it always seems like there are so many other things I "should" be doing. lol. One of these days....

I just finished supervising Shreddy in the yard. He wanted another night time exploration of the yard. We spent about 10 minutes out there. I had to grab my leather jacket. It's all of 8C (46F), but feels like 4C (39F).

I just looked up the storyline on that one, and set my DVR to record the new ones. Sounds good. I like crime dramas and need a new series to get into. It comes on in about an hour.
