Smiley Saturday...already?

It's Smiley Saturday again, the weeks go faster as you get older. I am sure we get Christmas twice a year now it comes around again so fast. Number 4 is sure we don't ever get it, being as he doesn't have his motorbike, snake and chainsaw yet.

I've had plenty to make me smile this week. I got a new digital camera. Working out how to use it is fun. It has a self portrait feature and so far I have a picture up my left nostril, one up my right nostril and one where I look like I'm about to be attacked by a lion. The shock picture made me go and have my hair done. Do I really look that bad, apparently the answer is yes.

I got my roof for my undercover area, the second half went up a lot quicker than the first. Homer only had the blind chicken helping him which made the job go faster. It made me laugh to watch them though, he'd reach round for a spanner and the chook was stood on it, every time.

We rescued the blind chicken from a factory farm and she was blind in one eye when we got her. I think she's lost most of her sight in the other eye now and she sticks close to the biggest moving object in the garden. This is always Homer when he is out there. She used to stick close to the psychotic chicken but psycho chook kept leading her to the middle of the garden and taking off (you wouldn't think a chook could be a bitch but she is).

It makes me smile to see a chicken trailing Homer round the garden clucking as if in deep conversation. She got a bit of a shock when she went to lay her egg in the dead herb garden and I'd converted it to a water feature though.

More good news, I have three writing jobs to do this week, its a good job I booked the week off from my real job.

Your post made me smile all the time I was reading it especially the picture (in my mind) of Homer leading the blind chicken in the garden. That must be a sight.
One of the coolest thing I ever purchased is a digital camera now I don't think I can live without it!
I am sure you'll have great smiley times with yours.
Have a great weekend.

If you have children you need a video camera. I have videos of my granddaughter of each year as she grow up. She is now four. In fact her birthday is today. She should be here in about fifteen minutes. My wife watches her while her mother works.
If you get time check out my smiley sat. Wife of present and future.

Congrats on your three new writing jobs, the new digital camera and new roof for your undercover area. The image of the blind chicken following Homer while clucking generated a smile in ME today too.
Hugs and blessings,
