Good Morning Friends and future friends!
Wow I"m doing good , 3 days in a row I've posted..now to get busy looking at all the beautiful photos I've missed since I've been away from this site!

This photo was taken on my Birthday last October, my children spent the day with me and the 5 of us made the 3 hour trek south to where I grew up, to visit the cemetery where my Mom and Dads stone is, and all the homes we lived in. We had a great time as well as spent a few hours picking apples , visiting the petting zoo there and going to a country store to stock up on treats!

I love animals and couldn't help but laugh when I saw this as I remembered the children store about the Chicken who had something fall on his head and though for sure the sky was falling and alerted all his friends only to find it wasn't falling at all.

I pasted my cropped photo to a white background in Adobe Photoshop CS3 resized and sharpened it.

Hi Donna,
This farmer scene is too charming!
Very well titled. The hen seems really talking at the ear of the goat!
The fur of this one is a bit too dark. I made a WS, don't mind!
Regards! Annie

Hi Donna - I remember that story:
Once upon a time there was a tiny, tiny chicken named Chicken Little. One day Chicken Little was scratching in the garden when something fell on her head.
"Oh," cried Chicken Little, "the sky is falling. I must go tell the king."

Etc., etc!!!
I love how the chicken is acting like a cat - scratching her head on the goat's ears!!
Sounds like you all had a wonderful day reminiscing the olden days

Ciao Donna

Nice catch!

and everything is complete.
All the union and harmony between the animal
