A Shipping Funny

Aug
30

Biscuits and scones fresh-baked this morning and ready to go out for an order.

I bake and ship Mondays-Thursdays. One day last week, I baked a batch of muffins, a gift order for a granddaughter at college in Texas. When I ship, my return address says Chickens in the Road….. Here is a note I received from the grandmother who ordered the gift after her granddaughter received her package.

Muffins arrived Wed. 29th My college granddaughter said they were delish. Thought you would appreciate note in her mailbox said for her to come to mail room to pick up a package of live poultry. This city girl, though a biology major, freaked out; was afraid to open it inside so took it outside on the sorority lawn and carefully opened. Luckily no chickens. In Texas they must literally think there are chickens in the road. Thank you for a good product and a good laugh.

I thought that was so funny….. By the way! This is a great time of year to send something to the college student in your life! A one-time gift, or even a club gift of a shipment every month for 3 months, 6 months, or a year. You can see everything in my Etsy shop here.

If you’re interested in a gift club subscription, it’s available in cookies, fudge, biscuits, muffins, scones, or variety treats. You can see all the club subscription options that are available here!

  1. August 9, 2018 - Mason and the Mess

    This is Mason.

    Mason and his brother Brandon have done quite a bit of work for us over the past year, and currently Mason is #1 man on the camper makeover.

    Mason and Brandon are contractors, and Mason is doing the major construction (and re-construction) as well as testing the gas, electric, and water in the camper. (You … Continued…

  1. July 15, 2018 - Camper Flip

    This is a project we’ve just started! We’re remodeling this 1984 Scotty camper–with an eye to flipping it, but in case we don’t sell it, we’re also remodeling it with an eye to using it, so we’re restoring it in a way that we would love if we were doing it just for ourselves. We’re redoing practically everything, from new tires to new benches and … Continued…

  1. May 18, 2018 - The Boys, An Update!

    Look who we have here!

    Weston! Weston finished his four-year stint in the Army just in time for his 25th birthday. That’s right, he’s 25. Boggle!

    So here’s the Weston update: He’s 25. (Did I already say that? I’m still shocked.) If you’ll recall, he started college at WVU Morgantown on a full National … Continued…

  1. May 11, 2018 - A Beautiful Bread

    I just took this bread out of the oven. Now I think, what did I know about bread before? Apparently–NOTHING.

    Because my bread never looked like this before. Now I begin from scratch. I have discovered true artisan bread.

  1. April 25, 2018 - At Least He Hasn’t Taken It Off Yet

    This bull is too clever for his britches. He’s gotten so adept at life with a weaner that he can deftly swing it back up toward his nose, get up under Glory Bee, and STILL STEAL MILK.

    Since I’m not in a position to separate them at the moment, nor do I want to separate them (he has a job to do), I guess I’m putting up … Continued…

  1. April 13, 2018 - Wedding Pepperoni Rolls

    I’m making several dozen party size pepperoni rolls this morning for an order that is for a wedding. They’ll be going in goodie bags. I’ve never seen goodie bags at a wedding before. You? Nobody ever gave me pepperoni rolls at a wedding. (Hmmph.) I’ve seen sweet potatoes at a funeral but not pepperoni rolls at a wedding!

    But– You … Continued…

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
