I can't believe I forgot to post about the evening at the fair that I had with my parents! Such a great night! As some of you may know, Tom Peterson is a chicken/rooster/turkey/bird fanatic. He loves birds and raises them. We currently have a turkey in our backyard named Thanksgiving. He plans on cooking Thanksgiving up here in a month. Poor guy. Anyway, if you can recall from THIS post, my dad loves his birds! For Halloween, he was a chicken farmer and he carried around one of his roosters all night.
This year, my dad entered his roosters into the Utah State Fair. (By the way, I wouldn't be surprised if the neighbors kill the roosters in the middle of the night one night. They cackadoodledoo all day long.) When my dad received the phone call that his roosters won 1st and 2nd place in their category, he almost cried. I've never heard as much joy in that man's voice as when he heard this FANTASTIC news! He couldn't stop giggling and hootin and hollerin! That is, until he realized that there were no other birds in that category except for his. But hey, it's okay! He spends a lot of time taking care of these animals and they are really his pride and joy. I'm so happy for him and I'm so happy the "ladies" (chickens) love him just as much as he loves them.
I'm proud of you and your roosters, Dad! High five!!!
