Ron had sense enough to grab the flashlight, I was trying to see and the chickens were flying and chicks were crying and it was utter pandemonium. I was expecting a fox. The flashlight shined a bit and and I yelled, " It's a skunk!!!" All I could think of was Sasha was going to get sprayed. The next thing I thought of was I had to get it out of the coop. I ran to the door of the coop, and unlatched the door and swung it as wide open as I could. I ran back up to the house calling Sasha so I could put her in the house. When I opened that door two of the hens went flying out into the yard. Ron kept the flashlight on the skunk who ran out across the yard.
We got back in bed I finally settled down around 3ish to go to sleep. Ron had loaded the gun and it was by the door. At 4:45 the hens started again. I still didn't take time to put on shoes. Ron grabbed the gun and the flashlight so I had to run with the flashlight while he looked for the skunk. I think that time though the hens are so traumatized they are going to scream at every thing they see.
On another note, I had a nice birthday. My sweet heart Megan, my son's wife brought over the boys to see me and brought me a birthday present.
She thought I needed some chickens so she made me some.
They are just works of art and I can't wait to see them on the top of the cake. Now we all want him to make us a chess set with all of the pieces.
I think that is what has been fun to plan and do this wedding. It has been so much fun to see the talented
family and friends we have.
Thanks for stopping by today. I am so glad it is Friday.
