Me and Mean Rooster

Oct

We’re becoming friends.


I say that as if I know it, and I don’t. He might take me down with his steely beak tomorrow. But last night? He let me walk by him and he didn’t attack me. And I was brave enough to walk by him without my rooster rake.

We are making progress, Mean Rooster and I.

    He looks well fed, maybe he can’t move as fast to get you! :hungry:

    It’s fall, testosterone levels are down and Mean Rooster is a bit more mellow. The mean may come back in full force next spring unless he is unseated by some young rooster that takes him down a peg or two in the pecking order.

    Suzanne, you must watch The Dog Whisperer Cesar Milan on TLC and apply his principles to Mean Rooster!

    Actually, he looks a little mellower today. Not as mean an expression on his face. Maybe he made whoopee with one of the chickens yesterday?

    Good for you! And good for Mean Rooster since his blood pressure must be better!

    I wish I could make a puzzle with that pic, I understand why you protect your pictures, they definately deserve to be protected, but I keep thinking what good puzzles your pictures make. I actually still have some but stopped doing it when you tightened security on your pics. :jackolantern:

    I agree with Joycee…Ceasar from The Dog Whisperer could probably teach you a few things. Maybe you went out there standing tall and looked like you were the boss and he ‘felt’ it….I bet that’s it! Ya. Looks like it’s going to be a beautiful sunny warm day on your farm today….ENJOY! :hungry2: (pitchfork!)

    Is it my imagination or does Mean Rooster look like he’s gaining a little weight? Maybe he’s getting fat and happy. (Let’s hope!)

    I had a rooster like Mean Rooster once, and one time, when he attacked me, I took off my flip-flop and smacked him up-side the head with it. He came at me again, and I smacked him again, and then he tried one more time and I let him have it one more time. After that he let me alone. I guess I taught him that I am bigger and even meaner than he is.

    Welllll, Mean Rooster aka Sweet Cheeks, etc.etc. etc….

    He is actually pondering….! Roosters ponder a lot this time of year…whilst they rest more til Spring!
    What you may ask is he pondering…?
    Well,it this:
    If chickens are crossing the road is that considered….
    “Poultry in motion”….?
    What do you think Suzanne?

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....
