Day 13: guarded

But not guarded well enough, alas!

Are slingshots legal? My Second Father was quite good with a slingshot, and he loved his birds. That ol’ Br’er Fox would be a goner if my Pop was around (because Pop would sleep during the day and keep watch all night until he got the fox).

I guess chickens don’t post a guard.

Chickens post guards!
Why a very prominent chicken was just appointed to be the number 2 foul guarding the roost at Scotland Yard!
Chock full of white feathers too!

Another Unpossible Weekend Stoaty! Nearly half way there!
Go Stoaty go! Go Stoaty go!
Really your stuff reminds me so much of pen and ink illustrations from books from my childhood.

“There must be some way out of here,” said the new chick to her Chief.
“There’s too much confusion, I can’t get no relief
Weasel collects my eggs , Badger digs my earth
Neither of them in that old house know what any of it is worth”

“No reason to get excited,” the Chief , she kindly spoke
“There are many here among us who feel that life is but a yoke
But you and I, we’ve been through that, and this is not our fate
So let us not cluck loudly now, the hour is getting late”

All along the watchtower, Charlotte kept the view
While all the neighbor’s sheep came and went, and baby sheepies, too

Outside in the distance Mad Jack did meow
Two foxes were approaching; the wind began to howl

Can’t tell you how much I am enjoying this.

(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.
