Have I ever mentioned how much I love to get mail? NO? Well, I love to get mail. Like real mail. Snail mail. The kinda mail that may be in the form of a letter or a package or a bill....okay, maybe not so much the bills....but the tangible idea of communication. It has always been so cool to me.
When I was younger I used to have a pen pal and I thought that was the coolest thing ever. I mean, EVER.
These days, letters and stuff seem to happen less and less due to the whole online and internet age. BUT, they still happen. Sometimes totally out of the blue.
I was so excited when the mail carrier brought it to my door. AND, I was home all by myself....what better time to open it! Look. That has my name on it.
Awwwww....a little rooster.
Then, I undo all the tissue paper to find this. Now, as I stand there I am having a moment of dejavu. Thats right. I seem to remember having seen this exact thing somewhere before.....
But, this time I know what it is! OMG. Its a chicken. Isnt it the cutest thing you have ever seen? My guess at a hat was WAY off base. But I was right on when I said that the colors were great. Arent they great?
And I got a chicken magazine. All this great stuff came from Mim. She knows its gonna be a bit before I get some of my own chickens, so she thought she'd try to make the wait a little more bearable. How sweet is that? Pretty damn sweet, I say.
So now the question becomes...where do I put the sweet little gal?
With this llama?
Or these llamas?
There clearly is not enough room to be with this trio of llamas.
On my cozy bed?
On my favorite, little stool?
On the buffet?
I know, how about near the fruit? Chickens like fruit.
Thank you, Mim. I LOVE my new barnyard friend.
