The Chicken or the Ordinance???
If I understood the newspaper correctly yesterday the “big vote” is tonight.
I’m taking Aidan with me and find myself all irritated again at something so stupid as chickens that are neither seen nor heard being “against the law”.
Pray I can control my mouth if people are asked to speak.
I swear if it doesn’t pass I’m gonna go throw a double-wide on the closest five acres I can find…
OK, not really.  But come on!
Here’s hoping!

    Hell hath no fury like that of a woman whose chickens have been scorned. God bless ’em if they get it wrong tonight!

    Prayers are with you for the vote to go your way and so that if you take the floor they do not get too upset by your passion for fresh food and your right to have chickens.

    Beautiful little one, I think that every time I visit.

    Also, kudos to your mom. I would like to hear you rant about decor, I am a bit tired ig the burlap, monotone house with ascp on everything and then chipped up. What ever happened to having a house that is unique, with collections and layers of treasures that are meaningful and not all cookie cutter?

    Good luck!

    I love to drive down the streets of my town and see a few chickens that have escaped from a backyard on the nature strip. No one would bat an eyelid at such a sight here. You can grow veggies in your front garden if you want to and clotheslines are positively encouraged by all levels of government. All the very best Ang – I hope they see sense and the value of keeping chickens that provide a family with fresh, natural organic produce. I wonder if the ordinances allow ice cream vans to drive your streets that sell junk that contributes to the health and obesity crisis? Just a thought! Challenge them on what they are doing to promote sustainable living and healthy communities.

    I hope the chickens win. I got ten chicks when I thought they were illegal! Then, I found out that they are legal. I would die if I had to give them and their healthy eggs up because of the law. Chickens Rule!

    Hope all goes fantastically… Maybe bribe voters with eggs?

    I just discovered you, and I think we are about to become friends. I just returned home from riding my bicycle, along with my husband, from the tip of Normandy to the very bottom of France. Oh, la la!. C’est formidable. I love all things French but seeing it from the seat of a bicycle makes me realize we might have misinterpreted some things. The nice thing about cycling through a country, and we have done tons of them, is that you see the real/not the tourist version.
