My Husband Is a City Boy or Which Came First The Chicken or The...

When we were on vacation, my husband had his first experience with an outhouse. My sister and I thought it was pretty funny, so we had to document the experience. He was so proud.

Also, he made the discovery this year that a hen can lay eggs even with no roosters around. I love him so much. He makes me laugh all the time. When he learns something new, he is absolutely delighted just like a little kid! I only wish my grandpa was still around. He would have enjoyed this.

He hasn't used an outhouse at the forest preserves? An experience not to be missed! LOL I love that childlike excitement of learning something new! How wonderful to have a husband who has that characteristic! Are you painting, Candy? I'm close to giving it up and starting over learning to draw! I think it is basic and I'm missing something. You, however, do great things!

Hi Candy,

I'm about to make your husband feel better... I grew up in the city too... and after I moved to the country was equally amazed to learn that chickens don't need a rooster to lay eggs! How's that? No man required? LOL! It's women's lib for the fowl!

Haven't gotten back to painting yet... was planning to yesterday but found a leak under the kitchen sink so I spent most of the day pulling stuff out so I could play plumber and track down the leak. Today I hope I get to my art table!

Did you find out anything about whimberries? It is a lovely name, isn't it?

Autumn Leaves, please don't give up! You enjoy it. Try to relax. (I know - easier said than done!)

Teresa, I told Jim what you said and he laughed. I understand about the leak under your sink. Our last leak had us removing and replacing flooring. I hope you're back at your art table as I type this.

Acornmoon was right about whimberries. They're blueberries in the United States and Canada. I like the name "whimberries" better. I read that they're also called "winberries", but that just doesn't have the charm of whimberries.
