The Little Things

In my town we can get caught up in a lot of issues. The location of a skatepark has been unbelievably contentious and I feared for some peoples' sanity in it all. Our formerly-local daily newspaper is dying a slow death and plenty of people are all pissed off about it. There are almost as many issues in Bratt as there are people. It can get boggy. Especially now, in the pre-Town Meeting agita.

Then a question like this, about a really free-ranging chicken, lightens everything up.

February is a heavy month. Much ado about decisions for the next year go on. There are changes going on in many lives around me. The whole country is nuts. But really, here and there it's good to have a break and only worry about an escaped chicken or two.

You know what they call a chicken that crosses a road, dontcha? Poultry in motion.

Poor chickie, dependant on the kindness of strangers for her daily scratch.

Susan- oh, that's bad... ;)

Lawless- ha! She better get home, there are falcons and foxes who'd just love her!

LOL! I couldn't agree more -- a chicken on the run is so much easier to take. What a sight that would be.
