Almost Wordless Wednesday: The Chicken Library

  

We've all seen these little free mini libraries. They're all over town and we're pretty sure they're everywhere these days. This was the first time we saw the chickens waiting for something to read. What do you think? Is there a book out there called "Which Came First..." If not, there should be. These chickens want answers, and they want them now. LOL.

PS-- Roger is still wearing his Zio patch. The doc is waiting to get those results. So no answers yet. We thank you all for your kind, thoughtful and supportive comments.

  1. Clucks waiting for a recipe book- how to make an egg maybe?
    We have little libraries but no chickens. You are special!

    1. John-- Now that you mention it, I've heard them say, "book-book-book-book" too. They are very clever.

    1. Weaver of Grass-- Roger is still wearing the patch, and we'll know more and how to proceed after that is analyzed next week. We're hopeful.

    1. Red-- As soon as I saw them, I thought, oh wow, they're looking for a book to read.

  6. There's one across from the post office here. I've taken a book or two from it but the best part was I got rid of a box of books a neighbor gave us that we had already read the ones we wanted to and didn't want to keep them so I managed to get every one in the little library.

    1. ellen-- Roger has gotten some good mystery novels from this particular library. We drop off old books there too. It's a wonderful trade off.

  7. That is so cute. Do you suppose they had to "cross the road" to get to it? That would answer that question:)
    Hoping you and roger hear soon. Waiting is no fun.

    1. Patti-- Now I'm wondering if the book they wanted was, "Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?" Perfect!
      Roger is wearing the patch until next Tuesday, so it's going to be a long wait before we get any answers. Particularly with Christmas coming.

  8. I feel like those little libraries often collect more books than they disperse! I hope there's some good stuff in yours. :)

    1. Steve-- I think you are right about that. They are often jam packed here, and often with children's books.

  11. Love the little flock of chickens taking a walk around the neighborhood while you and Roger do the same. Walking is some of the best medicine I know, along with music!

  12. This was a fun photo, Robin, and the comments were fun to read, especially the one about chick-lit and why did the chickens cross the road? Sending good wishes to Roger as well.

  13. I remember as a child having a book that told the story of Chicken Licken. Perhaps that would be good reading for them!

    Sorry to hear about the A-fib. I don't know how old Roger is but my mum's neighbour has had it for years and years and she's in her 90s, I think! My thoughts are always with anyone with such problems (and anyone close to them) as I've also a good friend I've known most of my life who has it.

    1. Carruthers-- I've never heard of the Chicken Licken story. I just googled it, and I think those chickens would LOVE it. Thank you for the good laugh.
      Roger is 79 years old. We're feeling pretty hopeful that the medications will work. The comments on the blog have really helped enlighten us about how common this condition really is.

  14. Could be they're looking for "Fifty Shades of Chicken". Yes, it's a real book! And as you'd expect from me, a cook book.

    1. CCorax-- You made me laugh with that comment. It's the BEST. Yes, it's a little library, and it is a rather poultry selection of books. Ha ha. Thank you for that.
