Hens and drug overdosing

walkin'

Everyone keeps asking about Pearl but no one inquires about the chickens or me.
The old hens couldn’t have it any better.
The avian experience at our place starts with a snug hen house. The outside of the building is made of sturdy plywood grooved and stained to give it a paneled look. The chicken’s door or, as I call it, the “hentry” is neatly trimmed with strips of linen sprayed with gnat repellent dangled in precise intervals making a barrier for the pesky bugs.

Saying goodbye

Food For Thought

Children, for the most part, are dedicated optimists. If things are going well, they assume they’ll stay that way, and if things are not so good, kids invariably believe they’ll soon get better. So when I was in second grade and approaching age 8, I was pretty sure I had my future well in hand. I loved school, had several nice girlfriends and my very best friend and soul mate Charles. My dad was home from the Air Force to stay and I never gave a thought to the possibility of anything unpleasant coming along to ruin my contentment.
