The Price of Eggs

Do you suppose there is a connection between the price of eggs and the proliferation of chicken mamas? My daughter-in-law studied up and built a chicken castle for four lucky ladies who pay 120 eggs a month’s rent. My niece recently arrived at my sister’s house for a weekend visit with her five children, a dog, a rat, and a retinue of 17 chickens. The babies were still in the brooder and she couldn’t find a chicken sitter.

In Relief

My neighbor’s Mexican tile roof shines in bright relief against a darkening sky.  Has Old Man Winter cast a glance westward? The temperature has dropped to 66 degrees. I hear you laughing. In Buffalo, New York, rooftops piled six feet high with snow threaten to collapse so I’m not complaining.



The only hopping I usually do is in my aerobics class, and I complain while I do it, but Connie Miller Pease invited me to blog hop and I agreed.  What is a blog hop? It’s a game of tag bloggers play in hopes of widening their circle of friends.

MailChimp and MicroDwellings

This little guy arrived special delivery, mail dropped from Barbara Haiges to Stan and Mary Bruederle.  They brought him to me from California along with my Writer’s Magazine and my Chico’s catalog. Chimpie comes courtesy of MailChimp, my email list management and delivery service who does such an awesome job for free on my enewsletter.
