I'm not the only one who likes my cowboy pillow:
It's a peanut! In the shape of a little bird! (Or maybe I'm just crazy!):
I drove out to Angels Camp this morning to buy some old ivory, and was highly amused by this so called chicken ladder. Turns out it has nothing to do with chickens, it was a pedestrian path for people to walk up and down the steep road. I'm not sure why it's called a chicken ladder... but of course I had to take a picture.
Speaking of chickens, this is the rooster that lives at the post office here in Wilton. I don't know his story. He's been there for a while now. Someone must have dumped him, I imagine. People feed him, I've seen him peck bugs off the front ends of cars. He sleeps in one of the big trees at night. He's pretty approachable. I tried to pet him today but he stayed out of reach. He's cute.
