Merry Monday Link Party #72

Sharing is caring!

Welcome to the Merry Monday Link Party #72

Let me share a funny story with you, because I can laugh at myself.

As my husband and I were enjoying our coffee on the front porch Saturday morning, we realized a chicken had wondered into our yard.  We live in the country and cannot see our neighbors homes and they can’t see ours. We hear the neighbors rooster crowing all throughout the day so we knew they had chickens.

Of course, I had to go take a closer look. It’s early, so I’m wearing my pajama’s and a pair of Crocks sandals. I have no idea why it never occurred to me that our dog, Orbit was not going to allow that chicken to roam free in his yard! Just as I had gotten almost close enough to get a good look, Orbit took off chasing the chicken. Well, as it turns out, chickens can indeed fly! That chicken took off slow and low but came flying straight at me. I turned around to run, let out a loud yelp and promptly fell straight down landing with a thud. My sweet hubby who loves me so much expressed concern over any possible injuries but immediately burst into laughter when he saw no broken bones or blood. I had my head down for fear of being attacked by that yard bird which mysteriously disappeared while I was on the ground. Orbit was satisfied that the chicken had flown his coop!
