Chickens, Goats and children!

This picture made me think of the 2 chickens we used to have--
We named them, Colonel Saunders, and Pecker--
You see, Himself used to run a clinic, in a farming community , about 45 minutes up the highway-One Friday evening, he arrived back at our cottage with 2 young chicks---
They were too young to leave outside, so I put them in a playpen, in the cottage.
Eventually they grew, and used to follow son #4 who was about 3 yrs old at the time.
We put them in the shed every night then. When they grew to adult size, they used to steal wieners from the BBQ---

Well, at the end of the summer, Himself took them back to the farm----
But, Thanksgiving came, and Himself arrived back at the cottage with 2 chickens, telling us all they were not the pets we kept all summer---
I cooked one up, and it tasted like wieners-----WE Knew what had happened to Pecker and colonel Saunders!

Another summer, Thelma and Louise came to the cottage-2 twin baby goats---
Thelma grew up and would bunt me if I got too close to her, ---Louise ate all my flowers and a lot of my garden---They did follow son#4 all around, but had to be returned to their farm sooner than the chickens

Life was certainly interesting with 5 children, plus all their friends, who would spend time at the cottage--
There were always dogs-----huge meals ----jumping in the lake all day, everyday---and children running around like hooligans, on motorbikes and 2 wheelers.
-makes me tired now just to remember all that!-

So, it's an Uber Day and I'm off to the grocery store before that cleaning Lady, Sadie arrives (that's me of course!)-
Enjoy the peace and quiet of to-day----I hear there is more snow on the way---
Will it ever end?-
