    So methinks the Sherriff is messing with me. For those of you who don't know: she is the funniest lady in the universe. IF you DONT follow her blog, you should.

    ANYWHOO--she sent me a big ol box---with a packing slip for emu eggs on the top!!!

    (Laree freaks out and gets excited at the same time)

    So I start digging, and the eggs are NOT emu eggs, (thank goodness) but they are hermetically sealed with inpenetrable tape, in bubble wrap, in papertowels. I think it is more likely I would break an egg unwrapping it than if I dropped it.

    I start lining up the eggs, and most are white Icelandic eggs, but some are distinctively tinted---lord knows what those are. I can't wait to find out!

    And to top it all off....there was Fort Knox-triple-wrapped fart egg. I am going to have to make a special cup for it in the turner.

    those others are snake eggs... and I really think you should incubate the fart egg!

    Quote:So we are in the same boat, no eggs here yet. In fact, if you have the 'world's worst post office' then I believe we are in the same town as well. I've resorted to opening a PO Box at a different post office. Today I was in complete panic mode when I couldn't find my keys, but the majority of my hatch is still in Texas and I'm in PA, so I don't need the keys anyway. Waaaah!
