Yesterday an email fluttered in through my Windows from Hilda.Β  I scooped it up off the floor and it said, “Have fun with this !! Hilda x”.

  3. I’d eat a bunch of churros with chocolate, then chill out with the bird in the sink for a few hours.

  4. I love that chilled chicken. Well, I think you are all crazy in Spain to let a chicken have control over the TV… it must be the heat! Lucky chicken to chill out like that before it gets too hot in the oven….

  16. Ralph, that WAS Manny, but I don’t see you in the picture. Where are YOU in that picture??? OK, I’d better stop there! The chicken is adorable, He’s been drinking so much his eyes have bulged out of his sockets. Maybe he was watching you and Manny! Anyway, I’m afraid he’s lost his head over the whole thing.
