    Sorry you had a crummy day! I bet that first egg cheered you up though. It seems to take forever for that first one to arrive. Beautiful job with the picture too. [​IMG]

    The first day we got an egg was the same day we had to put down our 15 year old dog. I think it was down to the same half-hour. It was a beautiful and sad moment about death and the hope of new life.

    Aww, sorry you had such a bad day. [​IMG] What a nice surprise to find that first egg though! How old was the hen that laid it?
