Roosters and chickens

I am joining Shelia for a party.

I only have one to share but it is a good chicken,---- on a nest. The chicken I made many years ago when I did crafting for a business. The crate Mr. T made from barn boards.It has been tucked away in a closet for a long time.
The party is a good reason to bring it out again. Still looks good after all these years sitting on the porch in front of the barnwood planter.

It has been a very busy past few days.The wedding in Mn. was wonderful and I will post later about that. Yesterday when about 15 miles from home we blew the left front tire on our RV. It was very scary. Mr. T did a great job of keeping the rig on the road. I had read on the RV yahoo lists about folks blowing tires and really having bad wreaks. I am so grateful I was not driving when this happened. All his experience with big farm machinery is what kept us upright I am sure.

We were tired from the trip and the stress of the tire so we went with friends to have a sandwich. I took my small clutch purse in to the restaurant but forgot it when we left,---- it was the topper of a very bad day. It is such a helpless feeling to know I can not replay time to get back that small possession.It is not the clutch but the drivers license and medical cards etc. that have to be replaced.
Over the years I have found peoples purses several times and returned them to very grateful owners.I do wish I had been one of those, but I was not that lucky.

I have come to realize to stress over this will do no good and in a few days it will be just another thing that happened in our busy lives. But it WILL take a few days to get it off my mind. I hope you all have a very good rest of the week. Our weather is cooler today and I am grateful for that too.j

I'm so sorry to hear of your unhappy events! I hope you call of of the holders of your cards and all so no one will charge things! God was watching over you and your husband with that blow out! Glad you're safe!
Now thank you so much for bringing your chicken in a nest to my party! How cute and aren't you talented?
I do hope you'll pop back in sometimes to see me.
Thank you so much for coming to my party.
You are a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

That's certainly the most cuddly chicken I've seen all day, nicely done.
