Well, Tully and I “processed” one of our accidental Americauna roosters, Emmarica, yesterday. It was our first time.  He had gotten pretty loud for us.  I’ve thinking about turning him into chicken n’ dumplings but have been pretty nervous about it.  Then yesterday morning he was “gettin’ busy” with one of our older hens with her head rammed into the corner of the fence.  So I didn’t feel so bad about it.  It was a pretty crazy experience, but we did it as humanely as possible.  Tully hung in there the whole way (is there a Cub Scouts patch for this?).  Now we have a 5.5 lb chicken and chicken feet for stock!

When you find a hair in your food, that’s how you know it’s homemade.

Really nice trails at Point Washington State Forest.

Only in ATL.  Seen at the King Center on a lunch run.  “You don’t know me fooool, you disown me cooool, I don’t need your assistance, social resistance, any problem I got I just put my fist in.”  It’s a scooter btw.
