Just Cluckin Around

    [FONT=comic sans ms,sand]Man it's another hot one.
    Discovered from the good folks here on BYC
    that I need upper ventilation
    in addition to the ground level doors.
    So that was my morning project.
    Went to Home Depot
    (ultra conveniently located 2 miles down the road)
    and got the vent covers.
    Got the front one installed easily,
    it's my belief that with the proper tools
    there is almost nothing a girl can't do.
    [FONT=comic sans ms,sand]But I do wish I had a better jigsaw,
    I'll put one on my wish list in my letter to Santa.
    When I went around to do the back one,
    I saw that the door had fallen and closed the girls
    out of their house.
    I suspect one of them hopped up on it
    and it gave way under the weight.
    As I was fixing it
    I heard roomie Sondra's words
    when I got home from work yesterday
    "No eggs today..."
    my reply was "Those slackers!!"
    I had gone out and checked on them, but didn't go around to the back,
    so I didn't see the door closed.
    Then I glanced around and spied one of
    Dorothy's small green eggs by the big tub of flowers.
    I felt guilty for calling them slackers.
    It was my fault for not securing that door well enough.
    But I think I've got it now,
    and they have some extra ventilation.
    And Pearl is currently sitting on the nest,
    working on a little gift for me.
