Lesson 636 – Cutting a dog in half – and still have it be alive

I haven’t talked much about our flock member Pippin and perhaps because people were spooked by our two recent losses in the flock, I was asked by more than one person if he was okay.

Not only is Pippin okay but he is incredibly talented. He recently acted as my magician’s assistant while I performed a mystifying and dare devilish magic trick. (I’m currently in discussion with some of the bigger venues in Las Vegas because of this one.)

Lesson 433 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks 


To those of us who have had Halloween rescheduled to this weekend (and now you know that such a thing can be done) and who are getting completely messed up because the stores are displaying Christmas items and playing Holiday music when we STILL haven’t had Halloween…

enjoy the festivities.

Have fun, get buckets of candy, and laugh with your friends – just be safe.

Lesson 429 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks 

At first cock-crow the ghosts must go
Back to their quiet graves below.
~Theodosia Garrison

From a home where it is considered a high holy holiday (read free candy), Happy Halloween from our little flock to yours.

(And yes, that’s really snow from this morning in New Hampshire *sigh*, there’s just nothing worse than having to wear your winter coat under your Halloween costume.)
