Chickens in the Basement

I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

My Favorite Rock

We have trails down the hill in our back yard. In one of the darkest sections of the woods is this huge rock. Seeing the striations in the rock makes me think this rock has been in my backyard since the dinosaurs roamed there, too.


Even with a trickle of light through the trees, flowers still manage to grow.

No dirt, just cracks and crevices.

Yet something small and delicate and pretty still grows!

This is why I was walking in the woods! Somebody had to hold the camera!

Today a tree, tomorrow Mt. Everest!


And, I think your old rock really IS a dinosaur!

I think we should all post about our favorite rock! Mine is of course the 20 carat diamond ring given to me by the Sheik of Araby . . . Seriously, those photos are just beautiful and I'm jealous that you can walk through your woods and not worry about all those snakes and bears behind the bushes.

It's been a few years, but I did see 3 baby bears on one of the trails near our house. I found out I could still run! (where there are baby bears, there are mama bears!) On Saturday, Will discovered he could climb that crazy tree. A saw a baby snake then. Yet, I still went back down there on Sunday with my video camera. Of course, I made Tony come with me!

Very cool rock. I had one in my old back yard when I was a kid and used to imagine there were fossils and dinosaur bones inside of it, many a daydream for a tomboy only child! Jennifer jennsthreegraces

Looks like your boy is part Monkey! He's giving me flashbacks to the rope in 4th grade gym class...ugh. I love the woods, don't have many too close by here at the beach, I have to drive up in the mountains. Totally worth it!
