random photos

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.

Love the photos! I think they call it a chicken ladder 'cause it looks like the ramps that the chickens use to walk up into the chicken house. Or maybe that's what it used to be and they recycled it into a sidewalk!! Anyways, those towns look a LOT better than L.A. Would like to live in a town where roosters live at the post office.

That peanut does look like a bird. If only it looked like Jesus you could make a fortune! I believe the Rooster wants to apply for a passport. If only I could be as relaxed as the kitty.

I agree with Ellie. The "chicken ladder" looks just like the ramp that my Grandmother Heath used to have so chickens could get up into her hen house. In fact, I think it might even look like a ramp that went to one or more of your own chicken houses.
