HEY! That's quite a bunch. We wish you all a very merry & Happy Birthday. Wheeeeee! Well, Deanie & Larry are pre- paring to start their house. The place they plan to build it has the chicken pen on it. Ally & Kelby's chickens came to a sad demise. The coyotes dug under the pen and had them for breakfast. This was some time ago. To start with Ally had chickens when she was very small. They lived out near Lost Creek, they moved into Per- kins so Kelby took Ally's chick- ens, along with the pen. Kelby had a friend who gave her some baby chicks. After their gradua- tion from the bathtub they were moved into the pen also - after the Coyote incident. They don't have any use for Ally's pen. Ron moved it home (since they are the country again). And Carson will probably be in the chicken busi- ness, Madison & Ally too. That's the way it is with cousins. I think it's really neat! It's Spring time, and time for baby chicks. Gerald & I have been having a bout with allergies and bronchitis. Gerald has his pretty well licked, mine is hanging on.
