Missus is planning on hanging around in the living room, and she wants my company for the next 127 minutes. I can tell because she has got McLintock! on the DVD player. It is a good way to round off an evening. We just came in from her workshop where she has been out working on some of her artistic adventures. She had been complaining of being eaten alive by the flying insects out there. No problem there! I went out to the fence and pulled off two of the hens that have been roosting out there since they got evicted from the chicken coop, one for being abusive, and one for being overly abused.
I put the two hens on the floor of the workshop, and let them get to work! Missus didn’t know if she should be happy or disgusted. It didn’t bother me a bit to watch them devour every bug that hit the floor, and what really makes me happy about it is that y two year old played on the floor with them, and I did not have to worry one bit about any poisons around on the floor or in the air. The chickens carried on with their work, while we carried on minding our business.
Other good news about the Chickens! The other night my eldest found a scorpion walking across the living room floor. We caught it, fed it a spider, and the next morning put it in the chicken coop to pay the hens a visit. That didn’t go well for the scorpion at all! They had it in pieces and were fighting over who’d get to devour it. More pest control!
As for McLintock!, I know who I want to be when I grow up!
