    A thread for random stuff not worthy of its own thread....

    Rockies style since we are such a tight knit group of friends here (anyone know if the other regional forums are like we are :dunno)

    There is a wild chicken outside my window and it is making a helluva racket.

    I had no idea a single chicken could be so loud.

    Cheryl has been knitting me a touque for like a year and a half. I think her knitting schedule was inspired by 309's maintenance schedule

    How the hell do you do that?

    do you use the onion as bait or do you throw the onion at the chicken and knock it out?
    OR
    did he mean "hunt chickens who have their own onions" "lol3

    I killed "two chickens with one onion!"
    Somoan version of "two birds with one stone!"

    I've been feeling the itch to get my needles clicking again too. Duke just gives me dirty looks when I say he should learn, good on Hell for taking it up! If I didn't live to far away we could start a two wheeled knitting club! Not that that should stop you gals from starting one, though!

    We could start an EXTREME knitting group. Full race leathers required.

    Personally, I enjoy acquiring new skills.
