Giving me the evil eye...
I was finally able to pick up a chunk of a rotten log and threw it at him and he went running towards the hen yard. By this time I thought you F#*#*N so and so, I hope that hawk comes straight down and picks you off so you don't even know what hit you! He wasn't anywhere to be seen so he obviously found a hiding place away from me...I was so shook up and angry and until you've had a rooster come at you with the look of the devil in his eyes, you have no idea how freaky it really is...he must have come at me about 8 or 9 times before I escaped. After Griffin and I got back from our walk, we came up the driveway and look who's way down in the front field but one little hen, non chalantly picking her way through the new garden patch. I don't think she had a clue of the trouble she had caused.
So I got to thinking that I didn't want to get caught off gaurd again, and decided I needed some serious armour.
"hey rooster...look who's the tough one now!"
my new anti-rooster shield.
You better RUN!
By the way...I don't think he knows how ridiculous he looks without tail feathers...we got him as a young guy and he's never had any grow in properly...but we'll keep that our little secret. By the karate like kicks he was sending my way, I think I'll call him Bruce, after Bruce Lee (besides a few other unmentionables!).

So, you know how you log on to your computer to research lets say, a good soup recipe and you end up buying an antique couch from Regina? Yeah? Well that's why I limit my time to the www. Actually I haven't bought any couches lately but I think I'm going to start posting a favorite site of the day and maybe how I got there...this time I was looking at rural farm life blogs and ended up strolling through the digital collection of the New York Public Library. If you love images as I do then this one will keep you busy for hours...here's just a few of my favorites...
