April Fools!

It would seem that the full moon is affecting my ability to think. To whit: in addition to the first ten chicks, now healthfully entering their awkward (ugly) adolescent phase, we today acquired another four. This time Silver Wyandottes. They're cute, alright. And when they get through their teenage weeks, they'll be white/gray/black striped and laying light to darkish brown eggs. Fascinating, isn't it? I mean, I used to have sense. But since this whole chicken thing transpired (still trying to figure out how that happened), my mother (not a pet person) has actually considered taking a huge Chocolate Lab. And I did too, but the family he found for himself is quite happy with him. (Hallelujah.)

Seriously. It must be the moon, because I do not have time for a full-scale menagerie. I mean, other than the human one I'm currently running. (It is too funny.)

Am I sounding a little manic? Hmm? I'm only avoiding paperwork, really. Oh, that and I'm highly amused at my own life. Highly. So that probably accounts for the giddiness. But it does not account for the chickens.

All I can say is just don't get a dog like Chuck. Nita told me tonight that apparently he likes to chase the chickens. Maybe if you got a smaller dog, the chickens could chase it instead. I'd like to see some pictures of how the chickens are doing. Any way that I can see some?
