Turn the Page, Change the Channel

Who knew chickens enjoy books and TV?  Every evening when Scarlett’s internal thermostat tells her it’s time to be quiet and enjoy a little TV before bed, I put her on an old pillow (meaning I don’t care too much if it gets chicken poop on it) and she sits for up to an hour and “watches” something useless with us.  Normally she shares the couch with a kitty or two.  The kitties prefer Animal Planet, but we usually subject them to The Big Bang Theory, reruns of The Office or the rare House I have not already seen.

I'm sick of Animal Planet! See what's on Food Network.

I will NOT watch Paula Deen fry another chicken!

Our old cat Missy is deaf and can’t hear Scarlett “peep peeping” even when she’s two feet away.


Our morning routine is to read in bed while we drink coffee and snuggle with the kitties and bunny.

Scarlet will not be left out and lately she joins the menagerie, that is the Burlingame family bed.  She has some definite opinions regarding Jim’s book on recent events in military history…

Seems to me the neoconservatives in the Bush administration rode roughshod over the military senior leadership.

She’s young…her political views are just beginning to form.

Finally I ask the question, “Where does a young actress go when she finds out she just got one of the leads in her high school musical?”

To Miss Debbie’s house to get a chicken hug of course!  Congratulations Meggie!  We knew you could do it! 🙂
