Ms Quickly prompt for today was a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, which I have bowdlerised in a haiga.  The two pictures were borrowed from Celie at The Kitchen’s Garden.  The story about the chicks is that the incubator was turned over by the dogs in the cold Illinois night, and the about-to-hatch eggs fell, as well as cooling rapidly.  Happily some of these heritage chicks survived, thanks to Celie’s tender care.

    We put four fertilized eggs under our hens when they got broody one time and two hatched. It was the cutest thing seeing them toddle around peep peeping like mad. If we’d known one would turn out to be the noisy, bossy cockerel we have ended up with we might not have been quite so enchanted – the neighbours even less so!

    I’m not sure what to make of the ‘Climate change’ theories. Some say it is more a natural cause of events that man really has nothing to do with. And others say man is completely responsible.

    It is a wonder more of us don’t think we are in some kind of petri dish – an experiment of some creator that we most likely will never meet.

    Thanks for your visit. I actually didn’t make the connection to Mr. Emerson and the Underground railroad (as a real thing) until after I wrote the piece. Strange how that works…
