And lo, he trespasseth,
and may soon meet his demise. For it is ungodly that roosters leave their original city of refuge and seek solace under a neighbor's tree - especially neighbors that are lethal with garden hoses. For also in that yard an enemy lurketh and lieth in wait for its prey. (Taken from the Proverbs of Martha Chapter 4).
The enemy being none other than. . .
Specky - the other neighbor's cat. The "he" that "trespasseth" is none other than Mr. Rooster Dude! Yes, Troy found him "loose" and strutting by our tree. Unfortunately he saw Specky first as she was slinking across the street. He was shooing her away before he saw the rooster. Bummer!!!!! That could have been a sight to see. I think that even I would have run outside in my pj's just so I could be a spectator at the Rooster Rodeo.
In the end, she did not get the rooster. . . Sigh. . . That rooster is so annoying.

How tramatizing could this be for children? Make sure you keep them away when you watch.

You crack me up. I loved the proverb. That poor rooster. I hope it learns its lesson real soon.

I'm in town this week. I attended church on campus. Your husband's solo was a blessing to my heart. God has given him and extraordinary voice.

Behold, Martha is silent. Hath she been imprisoned by the heathens for harming yonder rooster?
