Lesson 514 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks 

Early "G-man"

I was going to put a chicken photo up with an appropriate quote but then we got the alert that there was a lock down at RIT because someone had spotted a man with a gun around the dorms. The situation was cleared when it was determined that the man was actually a student with a “samari sword handle umbrella,” but for two hours, Marc and I sat at our computers trying to reach our son at RIT and figure out what was going on and if he was okay.

Our first thought wasn’t that “hey it’s probably  an umbrella”, our first thought was “we need to pray for our son’s safety.”

The ALL CLEAR has been called, all is well, the flock is safe.

I think I should go naturally grey and just get it over with.


Happy weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.

  1. Let’s hope that the only excitement in your day tomorrow is a green chicken! Glad today had a happy ending.

  2. Life is dangerous. Out here on an island on the Pacific West Coast, we worry about earthquakes and tsunamis. Once, years ago, when we were living near Seattle, a woman fleeing a beating from an abusive brother-in-law, pounded on our door. We let her in and called Sheriff/Aid Car. While we were awaiting their arrival, the perp slashed a Good Samaritan who stopped to help our side our house on the face with a knife. (The person trying to help turned out not to be seriously injured.) The Sheriff’s deputies knew who the attacker was; I don’t know if he was ever apprehended.

    When I was 12 years old or so, in Los Angeles, an aunt of mine (at the time a college student at UCLA) was murdered. I don’t know the circumstances. (Probably as I was a child, my relatives withheld information.)

    As you know, my wife’s favorite hen was attacked by a chicken hawk a few months ago. “Big Mama” survived; you can not longer see where she lost feathers. As I said, life is dangerous; it is natural for moms to worry, but all we can do is conduct ourselves as safely as reasonably possible and live our lives. I am glad your son and his fellow students are safe.
