'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Me-not-rise (mee-not-waking up)

Since arriving, I have been hearing a cock crow.  In the middle of high-rise suburbia, this is somewhat out of the ordinary.  I decided not to pay it any attention. Then I went for the late afternoon walk last Monday.  

As I finished and was coming out of the park I heard a rustling over to the creek-side...

Say what??!!  Not your average visitor.  Wonder where he escaped from?

  1. A fine looking fellow indeed. I wonder if anyone is missing him?

  2. Maybe the house behind me, theirs has gone missing along with the hens, maybe they ate them.

  3. Good for him. :-) Maybe people are going back to keeping chickens in their gardens.

    Bertie/Gail - I suspect he may have been 'let loose'; our council permits a maximum of 6 laying hens and one cockerel per quarter acre block - but of course the cocks make themselves unpopular after a while!

    Merle - hens as well - I may have found them too!! Watch this space...

    Perpetua - see first response above Y*>
