Okay, so I go over to Ed's blog, Enriched Geranium because I haven't been there in a while and I read his comment here recently, and while I'm there, I look at the top post and read about this French song. I then click on the youtube clip and following Ed's advise, I don't view the clip but instead read the lyrics translated into English and of course, listen. So now I'm thinking that if I'm to be treated to gems like this in the future, I have to visit Enriched Geranium more often. Another blog added to the list and with pleasure!

Yikes. It's 12:30 and I'm late to have lunch with W.P. at what we call The Polish Wagon - excellent Polish food, with what I would call roadside atmosphere. :-) It's a gray day, so we'll likely bring it home, across the river, and watch the chickens in the backyard. Yes, you read me correctly: the chickens. We have two chicks in the backyard that are quickly growing into hens. We're in love. What can I say, we love birds. I wish I had photos but my camera is broken. My kids have pics in their cameras but they're hardly ever around.

  1. Thanks for the plug and I'm glad you enjoyed the song. That's one of those songs that I find gut wrenching. Music is such an oddly personal thing, and sometimes when I share those things with people and they don't experience it the way I do, I wonder if I'm nuts. It's reassuring to know that someone else is getting it.

    We live in the city, and they only passed an ordinance allowing people to keep chickens. Several of our neighbors have chickens, and a house right behind ours has one. It makes enough noise that for a while I thought she had many chickens. Every morning it gets noisy at about 7:00, then again at 4:00 in the afternoon. I kind of like having the sound of chickens in our neighborhood. Interestingly, I never used to see foxes around here, but since people started keeping chickens I've spotted several, or the same one several times. I wonder if there is a connection.

  2. W.P. and I are in love with the silly things. My grandmothers raised chickens for food. As kids we'd get to hold the chicks but once they lost their fuzz, they became just chickens; not pets. These gals are pets. So at almost 49 (July 1), I get my wish fulfilled to keep chickens as pets. :-)
