Simon's "suspicious face":
"What am I going to get if I do what you're asking?" Stubborn, willful, conniving little monster. It's a good thing for him that he's cute.
Next is a frequent occurrence in our house. It's best not to set grocery bags on the floor, or when you pick them up they may rustle and bite. My particular favorite is when all black Wednesday hides in an all black Wegman's grocery bag. Somehow, even when one should expect it, it's all the more surprising when gold eyes and fuzzy paws lunge out of the shadows of the black bag. It's perfect camoflage for my mischievous little sprite.
And finally, this is why I buy eggs, when I can, from a wonderful lady named Wendy at the Regional Market. On the right is a grocery store "large" egg. On the left is one of Wendy's "large" eggs.
Her Jumbo Jumbo eggs are so large she can only fit 6 in a carton designed to hold 12. Wendy's eggs taste amazing, too. Plus, given that she refers to them as "her girls" and gets a rather wistful expression on her face when she talks about them, I think Wendy's chickens have a pretty good life. At least, they have a good life before they become dinner.
