If you don't read The Bloggess, you should. She is my kind of humor, although she's a bit more crass than Bits and Pieces. I heart her. She's actually following me on Twitter, which would be a huge deal, except that she follows about 10% of her 162,000 followers. She's hilarious. I was attracted to her when her Big Metal Chicken post went viral. If you haven't read it, do it before you read the rest of this blog post.
This week, when I was bringing out the trash in the middle of a monotonous day of cleaning, laundry, and child-rearing, I saw this.
I lost my fool head. I roared for a couple minutes, and then, of course, grabbed my camera.
The note reads: Dear Ms. Leanne: I need a new home. You are such a kind lady. I know you will give me shelter or find me a real good home. Signed, The Wooden Rooster (cousin to the Giant Metal Chicken.)"
It has found a place in my dining room, where I can see its cute little face (and jointed wooden legs) every day. Where it looks at me, and reminds me to thank God for my very. best. friends.
PS Don't forget to participate in my Ellen Show giveaway! You have a couple more weeks, but I'm going to keep reminding you!
