    Today one of my quilt customers comes to pick up her quilt. We got to talking about my chickens. She asks why isn't your chickens out. I say because it's going to rain. She replies does that matter. I say yes because their feed gets wet. She says can't you make boots for them. Well to say the least I thought she was losing it. I babbled on and she left. A little while later I had another quilt on the gammill quilter. While I was going along quilting I realized she thought I said feet not feed. Just the thought of chickens wearing boots puts me into fits of laughter. Make them boots..... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I just had to share that. I can almost see my chickens with yellow boots.

    I have an image in my mind of a duck with boots on. Maybe it was a cartoon or on a grocery product.

    One other time a Jahovah Witness came over. Well at the time I had several red star hens. They were over our banking where we dump the compost bucket. Course those hens could scratch and dig like nobodys business. They could root like a pig. I didn't hear her pull up in the driveway. It was windy that day. Those darn hens were dirty and I was telling them they had dirty feet in a high pitched voice. The Jahovah Witness lady was there the whole time I was making an idiot of myself saying you dirty girls.,..what dirty feet you have. I was mortified. I could not speak to her for a few seconds I was so embarrased. I still get a little red just thinking of how that must have looked. She was just there. I heard nothing. Less than ten feet.
