    Welcome to Backyard Chickens. I was admiring your avatar and thinking 'that' looks like a red heeler. Ta dah! I was right.

    BTW Backyard Chickens has 3 music sites stewarded by cavemanrich. You can put up your favorite songs for others to enjoy, and also listen to those submitted by others.
