The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
That’s what happened today.
Granny Meeky, our senior hen, decided she’d had enough of the courtyard behind the house.
So I took her to work.
She brought along her quail bodyguard, brown boy. Together they make a Kermit and Miss Piggy type combo.
While we were there we met various small people who looked at her eggs and asked questions about her food and habits.
She spent the time, relaxing in the sunshine and brown boy patrolled the perimeter fence ensuring her safety at all times.
When it was time to go home, she thanked everyone in Danish, in her usual fashion.
On her return the Bronte sisters, were remarkably disinterested in her adventures. How rude!
I’m not sure she’ll want to go again.
