Mark your calendars! (a guest-post by Tyson)

According to the internets, May 4th is International Respect for Chickens Day! So everyone get out the party favors, cue up this song and dance and drink to your feathered compatriot's glory!
For my part, I thought I'd post a few pics of our local fowl celebrity from across the street. When I cam home today I saw him strutting around and snapped a few fine photos. According to Nick, this cock was pimpin' as he literally crossed the street:
So there you have it. We're going to enjoy International Respect for Chickens Day by eating some porkchops and southern-cooked collard greens. I suggest you do the same, for National Pig Day is not as far off as you'd think.

The lead story in Wednesday's Andrews County News was about two wild javalinas that were wreaking havoc on south Main Street. The police had to call the local vet to assist in their capture. One was caught. The other is still at large...

You should journey down to the local Catholic church, or other if you prefer, and light a candle in memoriam for the one you bludgeoned... maybe say a little prayer. Though, I think a Requiem Mass would be a little over the top.

Hey, just like the good Catholics during the holocaust, I didn't actually participate in the carnage; I just stood by and did nothing, and then later shook my head, incredulous at the world we live in...
