Stopped by a farmers stand today and bought a bag of apples. One dollar. Just doing my part to boost the economy. Thanks for the applause. Got home and offered one to each of the kids. Once the blank stairs started feeling awkward I went out side and offered the dogs each an apple. This went a little better. Then I had an idea. Quite an accomplishment for me some might say. Anyway, I tied an apple to a string and hung it from the roof of the chickens run. Just up high enough so they would have to jump to touch it. It would swing around and they would jump and peck and everyone seemed to have a good time. The chickens jumping, me watching the chickens, and the dogs and kids watching me. All this for a dollar. Pretty smart after all huh? Dan.
