Funny how stories are found and told.
A few days ago I came across one of the funniest (to me anyway) posts I had ever seen as I was scrolling through the Key Peninsula Washington Facebook feed.
“O.K. o.k…..#@!#$%^&*%$#@!!!!!!! YOU did it to me again. Last year you dumped 5 game roosters off in the barn pasture. Today you did it in my front yard. The big golden rooster you also dumped didn’t survive the eagle attack last summer. I will usually take peoples extra roosters. Most I am able to sell. Game roosters I can’t. Now these mini hoodlums are tearing up everything. I am going to have to catch them….and….eat them,” wrote Barbara Rowland of Sunny Key Farm.
I grew up with chickens in my father’s farm in the Philippines. I know a little about the birds. The line about “mini hoodlums” left me in stitches.
Next thing I know, I am sharing with fellow editors Rowland’s plea at a gathering of newshounds from The News Tribune at the Swiss in Tacoma.
That left them in stitches.
We all agreed this would make a wonderful story for our columnist Larry LaRue.
So now you know.
Good morning Longbranch.
