I've Gotta Crow!

It's just that I am what I am
And I'm me!

When I look at myself
And I see in myself
All the wonderful things that I see
If I'm pleased with myself
I have ev'ry good reason to be.
I've gotta crow!

If I were a very ordinary
Ev'ry day thing,
I'd never be heard cock-a-doodling
'Round like a bird!

I've gotta crow!
"would you crow and let me go back to my nap??"

I'm really a rare thing,
Such a fair thing,
I can't keep still!
I'm bursting with pride
And I just couldn't keep it inside
If I tried so...

That I've gotta let go and crow!

" They may crow, but I do all of the work!!"

(lyrics from musical Peter Pan)

Hope you all have something to feel good about and to crow about!

Salem is trying very hard to ignore the crowing but I don't think it's working, Kathleen! *grin*
Love your pretty (or should I say handsome!) roosters.... but I have to agree with Miss Leghorn~ the hens deliver the goods! *haha*

I love them all and I put two of the pictures on Pinterest. I hope that's okay with you because everyone there should see them too.

Crowing about waking up to another day to enjoy. We have a weekend of rain (no snow, sigh) so lots of indoor things to do and may crow about them in a future blog post too.

Scrolled down, looked at other posts and found a milk recipe for plants, new to me . but certainly going to use it.
