    Oppositional/defiant chickens

    Should I take my sick baby to the doctor?

    Maybe we are related, what was your maiden name or your mama's?

    My maiden name was Baack (pronounced "bock", like the beer). My grandmother on my dad's side was Hibbeler. My mom's maiden name was Renegar. Her mom's maiden name was Brown.

    have we talked about the new KFC double down sandwich? (w/ picture)
