What were we thinking???

So this morning at o'dark hundred (okay, really 7:45ish) Presley called to see if I wanted to go to a "small animal swap" with her at a local feed store. She's knows I'm in the market for illegal chickens. Well, chickens aren't illegal, but having them in my "city" is. Anyway, always game for an adventure, I said "sure".

There were 2 calfs, 4 puppies, 1 goat (that NO ONE would want after listening to the guy give his "sales pitch"..."she'll chase you to the fence and over it...and then she'll follow you right THROUGH the fence". Oh yea, I want THAT one. NOT.), 4 cages full of full grown chickens, and one pathetically scrawny horse. Yep, it was lame.

And cold.

Did I mention it was cold? Bone chilling cold? Really, REALLY cold?

So all that, with four kids in tow (her three and my youngest) for the sum total of NOTHING except a 50# bag of rabbit food.

And a cute picture:

Do NOT let their lack of winter attire fool you. Florida kids don't seem to believe their parents when they say it is cold outside and they need a heavy coat-we get too few days where that is true for them to put much stock in that sort of parental some things have to be learned by doing. Liv's eyes in the second picture tell the real story...she was COLD!
Pin It!

I, too, have been plotting the "illegal chicken" ideas. I have been asking Dana if it is a sin to have the chickens if I am not trying to hide them and am perfectly willing to pay the fines if cited. He says yes...I still think no. I. want. chickens!11
