Let us end this week on a chicken

This lovely little bird is seven weeks old, and I’m going nuts trying to assume its gender. I’ve been looking at chicken baby pictures for days. The comb and wattles are bigger than my previous chickens that grew up to be hens, but smaller than the ones that grew up to be roosters.

Please send all your gendered thoughts at this little beast, as it is a very sweet chick and I would like to keep it.

I spent a lovely sunny afternoon in the garden with my flock and I’m as happy as I can be prior to Gin Hour. Which is nigh upon us.

Last night, Gebrauchshund noticed that Denise Nickerson, the actress who played Violet Beauregarde in “Willy Wonka” had been taken off life support but was not yet defunct. He decided to play the classic DP sneaky gambit and choose her. This morning, she died. I am inclined to take that as a win — who doesn’t remember Violet Beauregarde? It is, however, too late for this week. So NEXT FRIDAY, Dead Pool Round 123.
