Look At What Arrived

It's gorgeous here this morning! ---------- Low humidity, wonderful creature sounds and mid-80's all weekend! Perfect! And we're building a chicken hacienda fit for a king rooster and familia! We'll have pictures on the blog as we complete it. These are some pictures of the new arrivals as of last Saturday. They were 19 hours old! I look like a blowfish girl version of "Rich", my dad! Yikes, how does that happen!@#! I could kill Ron, no shower, hair not brushed grabbed up in a comb, pizza the night before, "blowfish" explanation, not a stitch of make-up on. The chicks arrived via USPS and we hopped in the car to run and get them; upon our arrival I'm ranting ------------"We've got to get first moment pictures"----------obviously forgetting what I looked like-----Ron sends the photos to Sheila, my beloved girlfriend who helps me with my Blog and I guess loves me unconditionally, thank the Lord for girlfriends like her.(I guess, or is it blackmail !@#?!) ----------and now I'm there for the whole world to see in not my best moment! Humbling isn't it? I must be more vain than I thought! But I'm trying to be an "over-comer", work through my "issue" and leave it alone! Thus my lesson of the week! But, oh, those baby's are adorable. I love baby animals! Happy Memorial Day weekend!
