I don’t mean to brag…

I’m one of the Community Notes contributors on Twitter now. I mean sure, anyone can sign up, but it was ages before I got confirmation.

They claim they get a balanced set of opinions, which probably means Elon has sicced an AI on my posting history to decide if I add enrichment.

The irritating part is shooting down a bunch of notes I agree with because the tweet doesn’t need a damn note.

And alas, Spoony is gone for good this time. I looked through my old posts today and, my goodness, she got herself into a lot of scrapes. Up a tree, on the roof, in a hedge. She disappeared for more than 24 hours once and I was sure that was it. Turns out, she was in the kitchen the whole time, standing silently in the corner.

The strangest of all my chickens.

Sorry about this. I try not to post when I lose one. I hate to be a downer. Some days, Twitter feels like one long montage of dead dogs and cats.

What are you going to do for a laying hen, now ????

I have one, though she’s gone broody and isn’t laying at the moment.

The obvious answer is to get some chicks, but I had quietly hoped to pause chickens for a while. Dealing with three cockerels for four years has worn me out and I’d like to clean up the chicken area in a way that’s hard with them pecking around.

Hopefully Spoon has entered the food Chain at a High level…

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
