Meet the Flockers
New chicken babies! Freshly hatched and all settled in for a thrilling life at Trout Towers. They are tickled to be here and will not shut up about how tickled they are. Will Not Shut Up. They are noisy buggers.
But what's that USB device in the photo? Well, Chris likes to make sure I have plenty to write about, so when I said "do we have a thermometer?" he said, "sure, honey!" And then he plugged this thing in and ran yet another cable across our livingroom floor and now we can monitor the exact temperature of the chickens' luxury cardboard accommodations without ever getting off the couch. Hallelujah, amen.
So. Because life is like this, Life is banging me over the head today with LIFE. "This," it says, "is Life. That over there? What you've been looking at all day? Is not."
It is good to have all this life making a racket in my livingroom.
