How plucky is this chicken ??
Vintage fabric and weighted heavy with sand.
She stands 9 inches tall x 9 inches wide.
My #3 daughter found her while shopping
thrift stores. This chicken has found her home with us,
and now humbly holds a door open (door stop).
Over the weekend, we visited Lake Tobias.
Located in a beautiful area of Pennsylvania.
This is our second visit and it was gorgeous.
You take a ride on a school bus that
has been "sawed" in half.
They provide special 'biscuits' to give to the wildlife.
The Safari tour covers 150 beautiful 'wide open' acres.
They also have a 'state of the art' Reptile House.
At the very end of our tour,
we caught a rainbow against the mountains.
Usually we spend a summer day at Lake Tobias,
but Autumn is just beginning to show itself and
the landscape was beautiful.

October gave a party;
the leaves by hundreds came -
The Ashes, Oaks and Maples
and leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
and everything was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band...
The sight was like a rainbow
new-fallen from the sky...
