This post contains my first attempt at doing an "educational" video. Perhaps someone powerful will see this, marvel at my talent, and hire me as a broadcaster or public speaker. I might even get my own TV show.
It can only get better than this
No where to go but up
Which way to look
Where to put fluttering hands
Do I look fat?
Perhaps this isn't a good color on me
With a twist of hope
For another feather in my cap
Watch me pull a rabbit
Out of my hat
For a chance to show
I can do this too
And even if it is only this
And not a rainbow to a star
It's not shy
It's no fear
With a twist
It's a story
Okay, so I need to work on my flow. Whatever. And just in case you think one of the chicks is named "Erotica", that's not a bad idea but I actually said Arabica. Just wanted to clarify that.
And no movie is complete without showing a blooper...
My chicks are a bit stressed from the long, bumpy ride home. Why is it we never notice how terrible a road is until every bump creates a frantic, harried, shrill chirping? One of the Buff Orpingtons is ESPECIALLY LOUD!
I think they wore themselves out and thus, the photos are a bit drab but you get the chick idea. I'm trying to quit checking on them every fifteen minutes and simply let them sleep.
But now I arrive at the important stuff -- chick names. What's in a name? Quite a bit I'd say. Changing my name to Maery Rose opened up other possibilities. I was able to see myself differently and create a new story. Old habits die hard but I can always ask myself now, "What would Maery Rose do?"
Chick names are a bit different. I don't suppose the chicks care, but the choice is still important, at least to the chick owner.
This isn't exactly a poem, but then few of my so called poems are. In no rules Maery Rose land, that's okay by me.
Chicken names An important part of Every backyard chicken operation
I laughed when I ran across The name Ann Coulter* For an especially noisy hen
There are literary chickens Adorning backyards You may well find Sylvia Plath Virginia Wolfe and Emily Bronte
I'm sticking with My coffee theme And testing out Kona Arabica Sumatra and Robusta
Poor Robusta Sounds like GASP... A meat bird name
Do not worry Your cute, fuzzy, little head Well... Unless... You're a rooster
p.s. For those who have asked about Luke, I rode him today and he was awesome! Lazy yes. But awesome. Not a cough or even a snort. And one of the boarders told me Luke raced with two other horses from out in the pasture to the barn the other day, and Luke won. He is so busted on milking this Heaves thing. Which made me very happy! He is such a wonderful horse.
