Hold onto your hearts! And maybe your funny bones too! This week’s photo features Pearl in the center on a backyard outing with Blanche (just barely visible to the back), Gracie (to the left), and Bessie (to the right). Or is that Bessie (to the left) and Bessie (to the right)? It’s hard tell them apart when you can’t see the combs on top of their heads. (Bessie’s comb became slightly misshapen and floppy after she defended everyone from a predator.)
I thought this might be a good one to share because this week’s posts have all been focused on Pearl and her dream of being a standup comedian. This photo was taken last fall, and I think it gives you a good idea of how beautifully white she and Blanche appear in the sunlight as I wrote about recently.
Don’t you think there’s a bit of celebrity status in the way she is strutting for the camera while everyone else is hunting for insects?!?
Before closing, I want to thank all of my regular readers for continuing to follow along with these simple chicken cartoons and stories. I hope you will enjoy Pearl’s opening night posts which I have planned for next week in “Pearl’s Comedy Coop”…if all goes well!
I will do my best to post each Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Every “Like,” “Follow,” and “Comment” is truly appreciated!
