Silkie Black Cock

Wish I'd had a camera.
It's actually a type of poultry I saw at the local 4-H fair.
I love to see all the animals.
Up close and personl with my fave, the cows. They have such soulful eyes.
The horses that are just magnificent.
We always hope the llamas don't spit at us. Did you know that llamas are territorial and that they make great guard animals?
I want a lop-eared bunny. They had two really black ones that I just thought were adorable.
My kids went on lots of rides and we ate fabulous ice cream.
That's what I did yesterday instead of writing!

LOL!! The title of your post seemed so out of character, I HAD to look.

Bet you get 8000 hits from this in a week. It's a shame you didn't have your camera - you could've titled it "...pictures" and upped your readership even more!

In the early 90s, Virginia Henley had a historical romance out that began with the line "It was the biggest cock she'd ever seen." She then went on for two paragraphs (as my collegial memory vague recalls) describing this cock until the page turn where readers (of course) discovered that she was taking about a rooster.

My roommate's boyfriend loved it and for a while there took to reading it out loud - with gusto - to unsuspecting friends (mostly guys) and giggling girlishly at their reactions.

The reading was a hoot. The giggling was a tad disturbing.

No wonder she dumped him.

A giggling guy is strange.
I once read a crit partner's chapter and in it she described a cock-filled kitchen. The pattern on the wallpaper was roosters.
Needless to say we had a field day on that chapter and my stomach hurt from laughing so much that day.
Thanks for stopping by.
8000 hits would be great.

I'd say it was a day well spent.

Hi Chris,
Don't be surprised if you get some weird Googles from this one.
I got a strange one when I posted about Swap Parties - a new fad to exchange goods and instead of buying them.

I've always said the subject heading is the one that will grab you and yours certainly did.

Nice going!
