It's a Rooster Party...I am a Little Late

I woke this morning to the rooster crowing (well not literally) only to discover I had no internet connection. Aghhh! Now what? Well a morning cup of coffee in my opinion can solve just about anything. Or at least help you start thinking straight. Can you relate? After I got the brain in full functioning order I thought I would try again. Nothing. I waited and waited and tried and tried. Still nothing. By now I am getting perturbed. Do I call the internet service people and wait for what would feel like an eternity? I thought I had better not call, because by now I am running out of patience and I really didn’t feel like being nice to these people because this has been happening on a regular basis lately.

Later in the day, WHA-LA, I am reconnected and I can finally participate in the rooster party but by this time I need to leave for my hair appointment. Oh brother, am I ever going to participate in the rooster party? Well, yes I am. I have been bursting at the seams to share this handsome devil with you. He has always had a place of honor in my kitchen.

He really is a handsome devil. My husband and I were junking one day and he was helping me find the second half to something. I can't even remember what it was now, maybe a candleholder. As he was bent over in the biggest box I have ever seen, he said he couldn't find what I was looking for but he said he found a rooster. I thought a rooster? What do I want with a rooster. As he came out of the box with the rooster he said he had never seen my eyes get so big. Oh my. He was gorgeous. Now the big question, how much? He said $20.00. What? It can't be. I read the tag, yep, $20.00! By now I know people were eyeing this rooster. Maybe it was because I couldn't hide my excitement. I thought I have to get out of here now with this rooster because I felt if I even waivered for a moment someone was going to snatch him. No way!

Here he is on my dining room sideboard.

Thank you for visiting. Please click on the rooster icon and visit the other ladies that have participated in the rooster party.

xxoo, ~Sue

  5. Hi Sue

    Hugs, Rhondi

  7. OK, you would not have gotten out of there with the rooster, I would have upped the offer :) Seriously, he is gorgeous. Blessings, Janet

  8. What a handsome fellow he is. I am so glad that I found your blog. This rooster party has been amazing.

    Have a wonderful weekend.


  9. So enjoyed finally getting over to your "place" for a visit. Thanks for stopping by my place so often. I appreciate your kind comments. Loved catching up on your blog. That would be so cool to visit that exhibit of Abraham Lincoln. I've always found him to be an inspiring man. Though he never felt that way about himself. We took a trip to Sacramento several years ago with other home schooling and friends. We really enjoyed our time there and all the things we got to visit. My home town is actually closer to Sacramento than I am now. So I've been through there several times.
    Love your rooster also. Used to do my kitchen in roosters when we lived at the ranch. But most of them are gone now. Have a great weekend.

  10. Hi Sue,
    So glad you got re-connected in time to show off your handsome guy! The sunflowers are a nice touch ... really set off his colors. He knows how to strike a cocky pose, doesn't he?

    Bye for now,

  11. Oh he's one gorgeous rooster...the sunflowers are and added bonus!
    Hope you had a Happy Rooster Day.
