Well, first, we're getting the new furnace we've been needing for years. So hurray for that. Didn't even wait until it broke down in the middle of winter! For lunch, the two guys installing it sat outside and watched our chickens! I'm always a little hesitant what other people will think of our back yard because the coop is not beautiful, and I'm trying to be a recovering pack-rat. But they seemed to get a kick out of it, and that's always an ego boost as many of you can probably relate to. When someone likes your chickens, it's like a personal complement. Sort of like when your parents like your spouse, or visitors faun all over your adorable overweight cat! I always pay special attention to my friend's pets because it's sort of like an extension of the friendship. Even her goat...she LOVES her goat. I could do without, but I always agree with her that he's totally handsome. I figure it's a way of saying, "Yes, you're cool!"
