I probably shouldn't have,
but I did!
It was too big of a temptation. . .
And now you wish to know the deed? :-)
Well, it wasn't the kindest thing I have ever done (or the meanest), and Troy said it might even be against the law. (Nervous chuckle inserted here.) It all happened when (Cough. Cough.) "Mr Rooster Dude" came waltzing around the side of "his" house, and I, armed with a garden hose, was within twenty feet of him. (Throat clearing inserted here.)
You guessed it - I was getting even for the days when he crows once a minute for ungodly periods of time. I (Ahem) do not think the neighbors noticed. (I was hoping they were too busy unloading the trunk of their new car.) This was a "once in a Southern lifetime" happening that I could not pass, and I gave in. . . Sigh. . . I suppose I should be ashamed, but, alas, there is no shame. Just a wonderfully funny mental picture of seeing how fast a rooster can actually run when squirted with a hose! :-) (Snickering at the keyboard.)

Thanks for spilling your confession. I had a laugh myself. Wish I could have seen it!

Now that is a funny mental picture--one soaked bird. Were your boys watching?? :-)

You are hilarious Martha! You certainly have not changed since the days we "hung out together!" I'm glad to see your mischievous side is still intact! :)

That is way too funny. I would have done the same thing. Great timing.

*grin* Good girl, Martha! We had the same issue in Miami and it was SOOOO annoying, tho, I must admit, upon moving to NC, I found myself missing it. *lol* If the neighbors say anything, perhaps you could blame it on the pregnancy hormones? Just a thought. ::hugs::

So funny! I love your description (throat clearing and all)! We have chickens but NO ROOSTERS! The crowing drives me nuts too!
I can't believe someone has a rooster in a sub-division - is that legal? Maybe someday you can have a nice fried chicken dinner LOL!

Way to go, too funny. Maybe he will have PTSD and lose his crow.

Next time, just wrap the hose around his anoying little neck. Don't worry--we won't tell a soul!

You go, Girl with the Water Hose!

Ha! I got a good laugh out of that!!

That mental picture of the fast moving rooster was hilarious. Or maybe it was your throat clearing and ahems in the description. It just too too funny!! Thanks for the laugh!

Could you all please pray for Justin who has made a drastic decision that will affect him forever and from our perspective is an enormous mistake. Please pray this week. Miracles must happen by Saturday, Aug. 25. Thank you so much!!

It was so good to hear from you!! How well I remember some of our experiences! I recall once when we were laughing so hard that we could hardly walk down the street! :-) Oh, yes, and there are the times we had to try to keep a straight face!!!!

I actually did my "deed" in front of Ethan (of all people). He seemed to enjoy it as much as his mother! (No surprise there.)
I do not believe they are supposed to have the fowl. Their flock of hens had to be taken away, so I have no clue what made them think a rooster would pass!

That is hilarious! So glad you shared.

August 21--no news from Martha. She is apparently still watering the rooster. :)
