Country rooster

I don't remember a time that I didn't like roosters...I don't know why I find them so appealing, but I do. And it is a great day when I get to see one and even greater if I get to photograph it. I saw this one on a drive day before yesterday...
************
Spring is here fore real...we had our breakfast on the front porch this morn. I love sitting outside and having a cup of coffee or a coke, but having breakfast out there is even better. Or brunch might be a better word. We had a BLT minus the L this morn....

Often when I make BLTs it brings to mind a neighbor and his son. The son was grown...in his 20's at least but a little bit mentally challenged. The dad had a garage in back where he worked on vehicles...Eric helped. Well, the dad was going to be gone and ask Roger to keep an eye on things and ask if we would fix lunch for Eric.

I decided to fix BLTs and when we fix BLTs we are not skimpy with the bacon. I really piled it on...he ate the first one...he ate another just as loaded, and I think another...and looked to me for more. By then I was out of bacon and he had to make do with what he had had. He was content, but had just really liked them. It made me wonder if he had ever had them before.

Oh I got caught up in the story of Eric that I forgot to add that Spring has sprung here, too! I'm sooo glad... BUT it's only suppose to get up in the mid 40's tomorrow, but as long as it isn't freezing, I won't complain! LoL! =)

Oh you know me and that I love Roosters...That's a cute story about the BLT's and Eric...I do that too, something I make or do will bring back a memory.
We are still waiting for some signs of spring. We had some freezing rain here that looked like snow on the ground.

Roosters are colourful critters! I'm fond of them too.

You've captured a very handsome rooster here. I'm glad he made a great day for you.

You must have had some great BLT's...I would have eaten three of them also!

I like roosters, too. Except when they get ornery and chase me! That happened sometimes when I was a kid! Heck, even the hens tried to peck me...of course, I was stealing their eggs! :-)

I love chickens--and eggs--I used to raise them--miss that now.

A piece of news said...

So seriously: before I commented I got up and made my lunch.

Toast and bacon sandwich. Thank you!
