Bless me neighbor, for I have sinned...

Yes, I have to confess..after all, confession is good for the diet..or something like that.

Anyway, as I was reading Laurie's http://buttonsnlace.blogspot.com// posts on Melinda http://melindasfabricfancies.blogspot.com/wanting chickens...

I realized....I covet thy neighbor's chickens....


Yeppers, I do.  I say a cheery "Hello girls" each morning to them..give them left-over bread and veggies..Mother-in-Law gives them fresh water and grape leaves..along with her Morning Glories..

...no, she doesn't give grape leaves to her Morning Glories, silly..although she does give them water.....the Morning Glories..and the chickens..

And, I must say, the girls love us too.  The come a runnin' when they see us.  And, they are not afraid of Lulu.  Even when one escapee came over to our yard..Lulu went charging over and the chicken just look at her with a look that could only be disgust..and she didn't move. Not one inch..

Apparently, a non-moving target is no fun for Lulu..so she sulked back in the house and huffily went back to guarding the neighborhood and all that is hers...

And, they too ask the age old question....


Here's some pictures of  the back yard today.  Had nothing to interesting going on..just a regular-regular day on Main Street..



Have a good tomorrow.  Or today if you read this tomorrow. Or if you do read this tomorrow, you can use the "have a good tomorrow" for the next day, which would be  "tomorrow" it you're  reading this tomorrow..

I think I have a headache...

God love ya Colleen! I'm crying through laughter, and loving this post! So have a good tomorrow, since it is tomorrow here in Michigan, I'm having a good today, while you're still having a good tomorrow. But since you probably won't read this til tomorrow, have a good day today! Really, it does make sense, doesn't it? Maybe we should share an aspirin!

OK I am having a good tomorrow. Worked in the garden...(no chooks.)...and got a sore back. Do you get eggs from the neighbour's chooks?

I wish I had a neighbor that had chicks...I would love fresh eggs but don't want the full responsiblity for them...have a good one..whenever

Those are some good looking chicks Colleen, but you definitely gave me a headache with all the tomorrows... now I'm hearing Little Orphan Annie singing!

I'm reading it tomorrow. I'm having a tough time lately with blogging. I can't think of anything spiffy to say and I feel very boring. I'm coming up to lay around with those chickens.

I like chickens. I don't like walking through chicken poop if they run loose. In Hawaii there are roosters everywhere on Kuai. (That doesn't look as if it's spelled correctly.) Any way, you're funny whether today, tomorrow, or yesterday.

I like the signs on the fence, what a great idea. I just love seeing roosters and chickens. I follow a great blog on them. So glad that you get to visit with them. I think Skye would go crazy seeing them.

Hahahahaha...why, yes, those feathers do make the gals look as if they're wearing bustles. You have a lovely backyard. I could happily sit out there sipping lemondade and having a great chat with you. BTW, I've not mentioned it though it's been a few days...love your header picture.

Chickens are addictive. I've never had any (and those are particularly spectacular) but my friends who have are totally smitten by them and apparently once you get a few, you can't help but order more. We have a rooster down the street as of last week. Don't know how long it will last around here. It's the suburbs after all and there's an awful lot of ethnic grilling going on :) Have a great Sunday.

SEE! They are addictive......I appreciate you joining my quest......and, I get two hens in the Spring....I was PROMISED!
