Bedraggled

Jan

Not them.


Him.

This morning, when rain that flooded the river turned to pelting-down snow, the donkeys, goats, chickens, and one overgrown baby cow hid in the shelter of the goat pen under the porch. Except this one rooster.

The animals love to peck at the fallen seed scraps under the bird feeders. When everybody ran in from the weather, this rooster said, “I’m the man. I’m the man! MINE, IT’S ALL MINE.”

He looks quite dashing, don’t you think? He’s going to see the ladies next.

“I know they want me.”

    Well those guys just don’t know when to come in. I caught my husband sneaking around the yard when Hurricane Katrina blew thur MS. That was until I screamed at him and made him come in before a tree fell on him.

    if the chickens are out in rain, it is going to rain all day. If it is raining and they are inside, it will quit soon!

    He be a fool. I guess something can be said for being in the right place at the right time to get the extra food, but man, he’s having a bad hair day.

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....
