It's Saturday Morning and I Missed the Rooster Party!

I'm just a gimpy old hen!

Well, it's Saturday morning and last night's first of the month "Friday Night Dinner" went well with fifteen in attendance.  Everyone brought something to contribute to the menu,which was full and very tasty... Baby back ribs, salads, grilled corn on the cob, baked beans, and red velvet cupcakes! 

Anyway, I realized this morning that I had missed the Rooster Party!  Fortunately, I got everything done for the dinner party last night, but forgot to post my roosters.  I will post some quick pictures of my roosters. Earlier this last week my back went out and I've been gimping around for days.  I did manage to do some Ombudsman duties, but missed my Thursday volunteer gig at KP.   So, you see I am just a gimpy old hen and I do apologize.

Last night was so much fun though.  Our new little addition to the family, Aiden Christopher was here for the first time.  Erika's mom Virgin who is visiting from Puerto Rico joined us, and since yesterday was Miranda's birthday we celebrated her 26th to boot.  Great Grandpa Al even made it back from his camping trip, and got to see and hold little Aiden for the first time.  It was a celebration.

He's my Portuguese "Good Luck Rooster"

I loved seeing your chicken collection as many years ago we kept chickens and at that time collected our own chicken related 'stuff' a lot of which we still have. However what was the Rooster Party you missed? Am I missing something which as a follower I should be au fait with:(

Yvonne, I love your big rooster high on the cupboards. And the salt and pepper shakers are so sweet, too. I have the black and white rooster and hen plates, too. They were a gift from a SIL a few years ago. I move them around every so often. In fact, all my roos take a break and disappear for months on end when I get tired of them. I kept checking back to see if you'd posted yesterday. Life does get busy for us, doesn't it? Have a great weekend, my friend.
hugs, Sue

It looks like you made it and in a big way. Everything is beautiful. I hope that you are feeling much better by now. Char
