    It appears that peek-a-boo the rooster crows anytime a car comes up our driveway. I thought it was just a fluke, no EVERYONE that drives up. I think the UPS guy is still laughing about it. [​IMG]

    I had a rooster that did that. He learned to recognize which car was mine (my high school car was old and loud). He would start crowing as soon as I got home because he knew that meant dinnertime. [​IMG]

    My Roo crows when I pull up and open up the gate and when I drive into the drive way. DH still hasn't figured out that when Elvis crows at 5:00 it means I am home!

    We have a home-office, and every time a client drives up, I can count on Crybaby, my roo, announcing the visit just about the time the client sits down by my husband's desk to do business. And I can count on at least 5 good crows, all in a row.

    It's really funny to watch their reaction. Some say, "Is that a rooster?" I always want to say, "Oh, no, it's a goat" or "It's the neighbor's dog."

    A few days ago, a client said, "Is that on your computer?"
