Do you give out candy for Halloween?
We have, "forever". But there are no more children in our neighborhood. There is a small woods, across from the houses, on this street. Which we love, but which makes it very, very dark at night.
Kids from the local college used to get dressed up with made-by-them costumes, and it was cute. But some of the college 'kids' have vandalized our yard, in the past. And I just don't like opening my door, to unknown 'big' people, anymore.
So, nope, we are not having lights on or answering the door. I hope you still have little kids, ringing your doorbell.
The younger chickens have now had enough of one of their wing feathers clipped, that they can not fly over the backyard fence.
This morning, their coop door had not yet been opened, letting them out into the yard and garden area. So "Blondie" above, who still can 'hop/fly' to the top of the coop, to the high coop fence, did. And then was stuck there! LOL
Son talked to her, but would not help her down. I said he was *mean.* -grin- But of course he couldn't! If he did, that would teach her, that she could do it any time, and she would be "rescued." 🐔🐔 It's fun, living next to chickens!
With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
Beneath my shady roof; there thou may'st rest,
And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe;
And all the daughters of the year shall dance!
Sing now the lusty song of fruit and flowers."
~William Blake, To Autumn, 1783
