Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Have I Got a Rooster For You!!!


Today, the Bloggerette Sorority is having a "Show Us Your Rooster" party hosted by Miss Barb at Bella Vista.

At first I though, "Man, I WANT to play, but I don't even HAVE a rooster!"

Then, in a flash of brilliant revelation, I realized I not only HAVE a rooster, but I have the QUINTESSENTIAL rooster.

As I went about the process of thinking through this post (oh yes, my dear sorority friends, much as it may not SEEM like it, I ABSOLUTELY think through my posts) I realized I do have a more traditional style rooster in my home. This rooster:

The chair cushions on our little Seller's Table set boast roosters.

However, these are simply too banal to even display on a blog, much less a post for the purpose of SHOWING OFF roosters!

No, mes amies, the rooster I wish to highlight is the most perfect strutting fowl stud to ever grace the face of this planet!

He has feathers galore.

His comb simply glistens like a crown atop his banty little head.

And his wattle, well - - - I doubt you've ever seen a wattle anywhere to compare.

When he crows, it wakes the neighborhood, as should the cock-a-doodle-do of any upstanding rooster.

I give you, rooster specimen "A" - - -

Fisherhubby Rooster Cogburn
In his natural habitat
Doing what he does best!
(Besides fishing, of course.)

I only HOPE this makes you snort and spit!!!

OMG Keetha!
How did you do that? I am laughing so hard and wondering what your hubby is going to say when he see's that pic!
OMG Keetha!!!

Ann in the UP said...

I can't wait to see his comment on here. He must be just as good a sport as you are.

But, if one's own hen won't brag on her rooster, who's to do it?

After all the "sex in the garden" stuff, is this not the logical next step?

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the seat cushions, they are really beautiful. Love your own personal Rooster too! I haven't posted yet but I'm joining in.

podso said...

yes it did ... does he nap that well not to know what you were doing? Funny!

Men nap so well, don't they? And we energizer bunnies keep going ...

britt said...

hahaha I do love that picture :)

Nancy's Daily Dish said...

You WIN, hands down! I am cracking up!

Holly said...

Hmm. A) Was your husband aware of his finery? And B) does he read your blog?

Not sure if I have a rooster in the house. I used to have some kind of tiny porcelain Portuguese bird thing handed down by a relative, though....

Lisa said...

Super great roosters!! This is fun!
Hugs, Lisa

Beth said...

Hey Keetha, That's a big handsome rooster! lol I do like the chair covers too! Enjoy the rooster party and visiting.
I wanted to respond to you when you asked about the private garden I visited in Wisconsin. It's not far from Sheboygan where we did the garden tour (which will be Part III of my trip to WI). You can contact Larry through his blog for further detail. He has a fabulous blog, is tremendously talented and really NICE too. And Sarah - she is a sweetheart! Great people. Here is the link to Larry's blog:


All That Glitters said...

That picture of your man is awesome!!!

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

What a fine rooster you have. His feathers are a little "pink", shall we say! And his comb a little "girlie"! But I can tell that he's quite manly and just simply in touch with his feminine side!

Thanks for visiting me!

Jane said...

I'm hoping my laughter did not wake my the opposite end of the house. Yes, that photo pulled out deep belly laughter! You are such a stitch!!! (I bet your classroom of kids can't wait to see/hear what you will do next.)
Well done!!!

Jane (artfully graced)

ps Thanks for your sweet and encouraging comments re: the BIG SHOES. I actually did another canvas of this subject. Who may make a giveaway one of these days.

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

Does he ever do a "payback"?? If so, watch your back, honey!

Gayla said...

How cute... I think that is the funniest rooster I've seen! How did you do that without waking him up? It suddenly made me think of a poem on my gramma's kitchen wall.
"Said the little red rooster to the little red hen, 'You haven't laid an egg in God knows when.'

Said the little red hen to the little red rooster, 'You haven't come around as often as you use-ter.'"

Hugs from Missouri. Thanks for visiting Oatmeal and Whimsy.

Unknown said...

Oh my, your Rooster chair is wonderful and your dear husband made me have a great belly laugh! How fun! Thanks for visiting my blog today for some bloggy fun and my Keeper of the Roosters or my Watch boy is an old doll by ZAPH made in Germany, he came out in the 1990's sometime, I have forgotten his designer but I think it might be Bridgete Leman. XOXO

OMG....I have been so out of it cuz of computer issues I didn't KNOW the Rooster Party this year was part of the Bloggerette's, too! Well, I had to miss it, but I will be back NEXT year!! I love that Fisherhubby Rooster of yours....he looks swell decked out in that boa and crown...certainly a look to CROW about!! Do you remember that last year I think we figured out that FH and I are extremely distantly related!! Heck, I have to say I'm danged proud to have him on a branch of my family tree. Any dude that would strut his stuff like that boy did is alright by me!! :)

You were sad that your first comment didn't post on my blog....but it did....and so did the second one. I think it was a TypePad issue however. I have zero control over that thing!

Keep's sweltering in KC!!! dana

I am giggling, trying not to wake my rooster. He is asleep with his mask thing on, or I would have awakened him for sure. Oh, a sense of humor is a beautiful thing! Thank you for coming by my little blog and leaving a sweet comment! Love your pic of your rooster man and....your cute chair! I need to come by often, just to see what zany thing youve posted next! You are so cute! God bless ya! Cindy.

Reminds me when we painted up a friend of ours when he fell asleep on the couch! His belly button became the mouth of Mr. Bill!! Thanks for making me laugh!
