“Friends are as companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life.” Pythagoras

The aging rooster and barn cat…companionable animals
He randomly dines on flourishing bug life
While barn cat, born with a club foot,
Every morning limps bravely forward…

The Truth about Tomorrow…

One thing I know to be true is that tomorrow morning the sun will rise and my rooster, Roose, will crow.

He does that.

Sometimes Roose doesn’t even wait for the sun. He’ll just crow, say around two, or three in the morning, or just about anytime he feels like crowing!

Could Roose be dreaming so he crows in his sleep? I just don’t know!

It’s strange to hear cock-a-doodle-doo at all hours of the day or night. Lucky for Roose, everyone can sleep through a major electrical storm around here or we would have had delicious chicken stew a long, long time ago!

Once Roose is up and about, his day resembles a retired Farmer. Check it out…

1. Roose jump off back porch railing and the retired Farmer rolls off the bed into his overalls.

2. Roose goes over to the dog water dish and drinks away the parched throat from crowing at all hours of the night while retired Farmer puts in his dentures and bifocals.

3. Roose takes steals a few dog food morsels for a morning snack and retired Farmer grabs a cup of black, hot coffee.

4. Breakfast! Roose cruises the back yard looking for tasty bugs and being late spring, early summer, bugs are happening! retired Farmer enjoys a bowl of corn flakes and milk.

4. Roose crows–retired Farmer yawns.

5. Roose runs on over to the chicken coop with one female chicken living in it  and says ‘hey!’

He believes she is his girlfriend and in the meantime, retired Farmer goes and visits all his retired neighbors to ‘shoot the breeze,’ as they say.

6. And the rest of the day goes on like the above and no sooner, it’s time for bed…

7. Sun goes down and so do Roose and retired Farmer.

Good night, Y’all!

I know one thing true about tomorrow is that it will be a new and wonderful day, if we plan it like Roose and retired Farmer.

What is one thing you know to be true about tomorrow?
