The other day I was out running errands, driving around the county. It was one of those cold days, 17 degrees (FAHRENHEIT) or so.

On the way into town, I noticed one of the trailers I passed had the front door wide open and a man was sitting in his living room. Just sitting there. Door wide open. 17 DEGREES.

A little odd, but who knows. Maybe the guy was simply a fresh air freak. Accent on freak.

Did I mention the temperature outside?

On the way home, I again passed the trailer. The door was still wide open, the man was still in his chair, but this time I noticed the chickens wandering in and out.

Of course they were. Why wouldn't they? Given a choice of rooting around in the blowing wind or hanging inside maybe watching a little TV? Hopping up on the sofa and cracking open a couple of beers? Chuckling at the poor fool critters still sitting in the yard? You know they were probably doing all that and more.

Wow. And I thought my house was pet friendly.

I went by there today and once again he had his door open. Of course today it is way up in the 40's.

Are you sure he hadn't moved his lazy seat into the chicken coop?

Hmm, could be. There doesn't appear to be a chicken coop anywhere on the property.
