crack that whip!

Woo yeah, busy! I have three projects underway, unfortunately none of which can be posted on line as WIPs because I can't risk any of the recipients accidentally seeing them. Have to get them done in time to be shipped/delivered by Christmas.... :-) That's pretty much the extent of my life right now.

I have a rooster living in the house. That might make me weird, but that's okay. It's Eddie, the almost 12 year old BBRed Rosecomb, the great (many times over) granddaddy of my ENTIRE flock of BBReds. He's special, to put it mildly. But he's also older than dirt and not in great health. He's not sick, just old, and I really don't know how long he will last. He's certainly not on death's doorstep, but I think the cold weather really takes it out of him. He's spent some time indoors every year around this time when the weather changes. I can put him outside on nice days but I always bring him in at night now. Good ole Eddie has earned his right to be spoiled in the winter of his life.

Nothing else to report.

I think we can all recall that special bird in the yard...the one that warrants the extra special care and concern in the extreme weather seasons. What have they done to warrant our attention? Perhaps they perked us up on an especially hard or awful day; perhaps they talk to you as you go about your daily routine; perhaps they are the yard watchdog; or perhaps they are the foundation of what we have been working on for so very long. Anyhow, here's to Eddie! Any pics of him?

Can you be a Rosecomb fanatic without bringing in a bird for special care now and again? Didn't realize that put us on the weird list...guess we are in exceptional company. Happy Holidays!
