My Notebook of ....ROOSTERS

WHAT A FUN TIME THIS IS GOING TO BE....

*
BARBARA had a Rooster Party last year and it
was so successful that she has followed up with
**
One thing I fell in love with Barbara for; her address is
BARBS GOOD LIFE...
don't ya just LOVE that? I sure do!~!!

*
These are my favorite rooster salt and peppers.
My sweet daughter*in*law, KATHY, gave me these and a platter to match one year for Christmas.
*
Their little names...HOPE and CHESTER

HOPE and CHESTER show up again on the large ceramic platter that goes along with the salt and peppers...
*


YEP...I have NAMES for my roosters and chickens....
do you?
**
I've had this little plate for several years and it is still a favorite...
POLKA DOTS and BLACK..
what's not to like ??
*
this is LOU..... "SKIP TO MY LOU, MY DARLING..... "
*
My FUNNIEST Chicken story happened with a fellow blogger......
*
Remember NIKKI at BLAH BLAH BLAH BLOG ?
She is, without a doubt, one of the FUNNEST ladies I've had the pleasure to know.
**
About 4 or 5 years ago, we were all on RATE MY SPACE where you are SUPPOSED
to post photos of your house or rooms...
*
We did that......for awhile....
Then, one day, just out of the BLUE..
I posted a picture of one of my ROOSTERS...
*
Well, needless to say, EVERYone jumped on the ROOSTER WAGON and started
posting THEIR roosters....
*
NIKKI....wanting to join in the fun but having NOT ONE SINGLE ROOSTER in her house,
ran to her freezer, ...
grabbed a FROZEN CUT UP FRYER...
took a photo of it and....
POSTED IT ON RATE MY SPACE
for all the world to see....
*
I'm telling ya...I laughed so hard, I nearly threw up....
*
It was so so funny and, all these years later, I SELDOM see a cut up chicken that
I don't think of
NIKKI......
oh, how I love memories such as this !!
********

"show me the way, JACK"
ALL IS WELL WITH MY SOUL...
hope it is with YOURS, too. :)
*
This is MAGNIFICENT MIKE....
can you believe he has a little door on his side that opens to place a CANDLE inside...? CRAZY...
*This is TISKIT....
*
TISKET shows up a lot at our breakfast table.....
*
"...a tisket, a tasket...I lOST my yellow basket..."
*
just a song from my early childhood....:)
*
A special friend gave these magnificent picture to me...
just out of the goodness of her HEART...

You probably guessed HER name....
SASSY BRITCHES
*
*
Ole "PURE COUNTRY" has lived here for about 8 years..
maybe a little longer...
He's made of wood and thrifted for a couple of dollars....
*

A little ole chicken feeder being used for GRANDS candy...:)
When I was little, my mother ordered baby chicks THROUGH THE MAIL...
They would come in big cardboard boxes that had "breathing holes" in it...
Mom had big feeders like this one for them and it was such fun, watching them grow...*
*
...and DOMINECKER !!
*
HE IS MY FAVORITE OF ALL THE ROOSTERS
that hang out here at SWEET NOTHINGS...
He is, indeed, THE LEADER OF THE PACK...
*
could be because he's black and white and has....POLKA DOTS !
*
I think HE thinks that he's UGLY....*shhhhh
*
BUT...
I think he's so UGLY, he's CUTE !!
**
hope you all have fun, looking at all the ROOSTERS in BLOGLAND...
and
HAVE A MAGNIFICENT DAY...
**
*NOTE...I do have a few more roosters but...
I'll save them for....NEXT time.. :))

Sue said...

Yup- only you would go around naming your rooster collection, BJ!!! I love the framed lithographs the best- they are so regal. The rest of yours are precious, including the last guy with the sparse tail feathers. He must be the wiser, more mature, balding king of the barnyard... too cute
hugs, Sue

Oh, I had to tell you - I made stuffed Anaheim peppers last night and they were so delicious!! Thank you for sharing that idea. I would have kept on using bell peps! What do I know? I do know you're a fantastic cook and I borrow your recipes all the time! :)
Mr. Precious thanks you, too!
Be a sweetie,
