Phyllis and An Upcoming Event
This is Phyllis (as in Diller)
How this breed survives,
I have no idea.
It seems they have very poor eyesight.
She can't see you soon enough to run from you.
If you want chickens you can catch
raise Polish chickens.
Yesterday when we pulled into the driveway at the farm
there was a huge and beautiful hawk circling our place.
The coops are covered, so I wasn't worried,
but I pulled up next to the bantam coop and saw
that ALL the bantams were hiding and out of site
Yes, it was Phyllis.
Just looking around in confusion wondering
where everyone went.
Gotta love her.
On another note,
I have a Bucket List - a short one - but a list.
On this list I put something that I didn't really, actually want to do,
but I wanted to say I did.
Just once, I wanted to at least be able to say I did that.
No, it's not skydiving or any heroics.
It's nothing you are thinking.
In fact I wasn't going to tell you
but to save having you think "well that's no big deal"
I am going to tell you.
Because it is a big deal because it is in Omaha
and I can't for the life of me drive in Omaha
And it starts early in the morning
and I am not a morning person.
And there are a LOT of people
and I prefer no people.
I have been invited to be a vendor at the
Omaha Farmers Market this Saturday.
This scares me.
Have you ever done anything just to say you did?
