194

G'day we've been living at our Bethania home now for
7 years & in that time I've always wanted to put a chook
or two in the back garden...
'No' not real ones... as we go away now & again &
that could be a bother to our good neighbour... lol
Well I looked high & I looked low... I found some chooks
but not any that suited me & my garden...
Now that Border Girl has shifted, we have new shops
to look at & low & behold I found me a Rooster...
he was big & looked a tad heavy so we were going to
get him on the way back...
well I think you can imagine what happened...
the shop was shut.
But that Border Girl she knew so when we went down
their for a BBQ before Christmas who was there waiting
for me but 'Tin Rooster'...
waiting to go to his own garden home...
Do you see him down the back there...

watching my every move...

standing guard of the back garden...

standing so erect & very proud...

When I went down the other week to say
'G'day' to Tin Rooster, he confided in me
that he was a tad lonely in our big
back garden without another feathered
friend... he found the birds rather rude
to him as they all had their life-long mates.
Ummm... I could understand his
dilemma so I set about finding a solution...
I went & stayed with Border Girl the other
w/e & 'by chance' we did a 'bit of shopping'...
So look who I brought home for Tin
Rooster... Teanny...

His new wife... she was a bit shy at first...
but he soon won her over with his usual
charm & charisma...

they both love the freedom of our back garden...

What is that I see in the plants over there
Teanny???...

Ohhh myyy we have some eggs... But
Teanny soon let me know they weren't for
our breakfast...

Look who made a little sneaky appearance
today... I'd forgotten how cute chicks are...

Ohh Teanny how cute she is...
what's her name???...

Ohhh still some discussion between you &
Tin Rooster... that's OK... I can wait...

I think it best if we leave this little family to
get used to each other... Bye seeya later...
Treasure every precious encounter.
To treasure you relationship is to
treasure your life.
