Famous For Fowl

You could have knocked me over with a feather....
a chicken feather...of course...
when a writer for the Alabama Cooperative Farming News
contacted me and wanted to write a story on me!
It felt weird when the magazine came out and there I was...
my big, giant face looking back at me from shiny page #12.
I was holding Rod Stewart on the very first day I got him. (smile)
Mrs. Carolyn Drinkard did a wonderful job of making me sound ummm...
interesting instead of down right crazy...:)
The funny part was that my friends may or may not have been horrified
that I included their photo in their chicken outfits in the photos that she
requested of me to send to her.
(I made them autograph their photo for me..heehee)
I was equally shocked and amazed that I had a 5 page spread!!!
Mrs. Drinkard said that was a "first" for the magazine to do on anyone!
I credit her amazing writing skills..:)
It was super nice of Mrs. Drinkard to do this for me.
I was very flattered.
But it did feel strange see me and my life "out there".
 I know that by blogging we are already "out there" but it really just seems like it's a
very small, close community...the blogging world.
Or maybe it's because I think I have only 12 friends... which is my usual number of comments..:)
I didn't mention to hardly anyone that I was going to be in this magazine
because I really thought not many people I knew would even get this magazine
but I was wrong!!
My phone started ringing and I had friends and family all asking
"did you know you were in a magazine?"
My face book blew up for a while and it was really fun to hear all the comments.
But it still felt.........weird....exciting....but weird.
I can't imagine how REAL BIG DEAL people in BIG news feel.
So a big thanks to Mrs. Carolyn Drinkard and Alabama Cooperative Farming News
 for making this little chick get to preen and strut for a few days...:)
I was thrilled with the article but I'm not sure my "guys" are real happy that all
of ALABAMA now knows that their mom is the crazy chicken lady..heehee.

I was waiting for this post to come out. Wow...was the whole article I read online included on that link? By looking at the photos of the actual magazine, it seems way bigger...maybe not all the pics! I think this is awesome, friend! When you get your own reality show from this, I can say I knew you when...well, kinda knew you :)
