    So today I park my car on a street I've never been on, in a neighborhood I've never been to, to wait a few minutes in the hopes my blackberry would start working again so I could retrieve work messages and determine my next stop. Having been doing paperwork for days on end, not seeing the light of day, I decided to stretch for a few rare minutes. Rediculously, in under 10 minutes walking I got turned around while strolling in a densely residential not-at-all-rural neighborhood with several dead end streets so stopped to ask directions from someone who was walking toward her car. As we're chatting I notice a BYC bumper sticker on her car!!! "BYC!" I exclaimed! What are the odds? Within a couple of minutes I met her 2 lovely hens and then she kindly directed me the right way to get back to my car. Turns out we both also do rescue of furry beings. Small world? No such thing as coincidence? Don't know, but it was a nice serendipitous part of my day [​IMG]

    hahaha... what a fantastic story!!!! Thanks so much for sharing it with us. I love wearing my BYC shirts to Home Depot during the Spring. I almost always get people stopping me saying, "Oh, you go to BYC? We're building a chicken coop like one we saw on your site!"

    No coincidences - only providences. That was great.
