all you need to know about friday night at our place.

Kevin just got back from an two day overnight field trip, and my new thing is getting a chicken. Not a full coop until we have a house and backyard, but just a chicken. Tonight's Google searches have included "can I keep a chicken as a pet?" and "chicken diapers."  He is so happy to be home.

P.S. My research led me to find that Flannery O'Connor had her first brush with fame after teaching her chicken to walk backwards as a child in Georgia. 

Film still of Mary (Flannery) O'Connor from British Pathé
