chick chick chick ..

Every trip back home includes visiting with (actually staying with) one of the dearest people I know, Mary Lou.  She started working for my parents when I was around 4 and quickly became another member of the family. I was admiring the free-range chickens roaming her yard when she said "wanta see something funny?" and in a breath she took a slice of bread out on the back porch and yelled "here chick, chick, chick".  The chicks, roosters, hens, and even a Canadian Goose came 'a running' from every direction. There was no stopping to see if there was any traffic, no slowing down because of the fence, and forget it if another tripped along the way.  These chicks were on a mission to get some of the good stuff. 

some were so pretty ... 

others were just run of the mill. 

 All were entertaining.
