    Hope is a powerful antidote. Sounds like a lot of good things happening! (Well, except for the flat tire. [​IMG])

    well, that wasnt the end of it ! daughter called me and said there was a food bank in osgood , not to far. so i met her in versailles and off we went . I have never been to one . I was a little uncomfortable being there . I got TONs of food. a pack of chicken that would last us all week. canned stuff, just a lot including little candy bars. hahaa has nuts in them but i can spit . By the time we left i was pretty happy. they must of gave me 30 little bags of snack crackers. So there was another place in Delaware again not to far. the line was very long so i sat in the car while she stood in line. people were coming out with donuts, cakes, all kinds of breads and cakes. and a big ol ham ! I told my dd watch, by the time we get up there the ham will be gone and sure enough, 2 people ahead of me didnt get one. Man my mouth was watering for that too ! I got a roll of breakfast sausage. hahaa, again , i got tons of stuff though. veggies, peanut butter and jelly, tomatoes, ect... bet i came home with 200 dollars worth of food. All the goodies and breads are past due but still fresh . so, on a sadder note the baby chick i gave the corrid to passed last night. I called my GS and i hung up with him balling his eyes out. I felt really bad but i knew it wasnt going to make it. SO, I have a little bantam that went broody on 3 eggs and one was pipped all day. I went out after i talked to GS and it was zipping. It is in the flock and she is a first time mama so i took the egg, put it in a wicker baby carriage, wrapped it in a white sock that looks like a baby blanket and put it in with the seramas. funny looking site. hahaa If its healthy i will see what he thinks about it.

    thank you, I have slept most the day away and thinking back, I had hallucinations last night . The severe headache, throwing up, must be a migraine. a bad one no doubt. The headache is much less now. the sun was killing my eyes trying to drive today. I didnt think i would be able to make the trip. but i did and am happy . they were giving away donuts . 4 boxes per family and they were my favorite. LOL the whole familys favorite. The chick hatched under the heat lamp. It is as big as the seramas it is in with if not a hair bigger. kinda looks like the one that died. I think my GS will be pleased. I remember giving the egg to the little broody but i have no idea what it is. mostly black with dark legs. very fluffy but not polish. light tan egg. I remember thinking since i am getting rid of "this" chicken wouldnt it be cool if her egg hatched ?

    Oh, granny, you buggar - I'll have you know you made me tear up reading that. I am SO very happy that things went well for you today and that they were able to give you a little bit of relief - I am so very glad I was able to help play even some small part in that. [​IMG]

    THIS is what programs like that one are there for!

    Ol mare, thank you. I am sorry i made you cry. know that i was crying along with you for the same reason. tears of joy . I paid the rest of my bills and i have 100 dollars left for the month unless i still have to pay the balance which is 25 dollars. I was so sick when i was there i didnt catch too much. something about a new app. in a yr ? do they do this once a yr. or ?
    Camping, is it the EE ? dark legs, my EE was white and tan , But i am wondering if the cream legbar was the daddy, and her the mama ? that would of been something i would be hoping for. could of been her egg. and he was with them at the time. It has that fluff around the head. OHH, I hope so !
