In 1960, Neil Sedaka released Calendar Girl. The song was about the love for his girlfriend and corresponding events each month which illustrated this love. Though I am no Neil Sedaka, I must confess that there were a few Charlie’s Angels posters which hung in my room as a teen. But, I am here to tell you that this City Boy has cleaned up his act.
“Ladies and gentlemen……….It gives me great pleasure to inform you of a three-way tie for Miss January 2015………… Drum roll please…………. All the way from Ontario, Canada, please give a big round of applause for this year’s winner of the prestigious title for Miss January 2015. Ladies and Gentlemen, please give it up for…….. Honda, Swifer & Rosie”.
That’s right folks. Your eyes and ears have not deceived you. My three chickens were selected to be the January “girls” for Backyard Poultry Magazine’s 2015 calendar. I am proud to say that the calendar is proudly displayed in our kitchen, and my “prestigious honor” has sure given my friends a hearty laugh! “Hey Ted, ……you pulled yourself together yet?”
Happy New Year to All. I hope your 2015 will be filled with many new discoveries and lots and lots of laughs!!
