Chickening out

All of us here now dread late winter / early spring, for that is when Mom’s mid-life crisis kicks in and she engages in some life changing task to fill the empty hours of her pristinely uncluttered and sedate life.

This year could be extra special. The last month or so Mom has been reading books like Storey’s Guide to Raising Chickens and Chickens in your Backyard. I wish to emphasize that these books have not only been ordered, but are currently resting on Mom’s reading table. Not that we should draw any hasty conclusions from this. Surely it’s a perfectly normal sort of reading material that many people find interesting in an abstract and exotically in some one else’s life kind of way. Right?

Can I get in line now for some fresh eggs?

The U of I Agriculture department sells fresh eggs just down the road from us. Just drive about 30 meters south from the turn off from Race and it’ll be on the right.
