ROOSTER ATTACK -
I stopped on the trail behind the barn
to pick up some sticks on the trail
when our rooster suddenly attacked.
He hit me with his spur in the face.
My glasses went flying and his
spur raked across the side of my face.
I think, had it not been for my glasses
he might have taken out my eye.
I spent some time trying to catch him
to put him out of my misery but
was not able.
I presume he will come to roost
tonight and then I will get him
and give him his last rites.
He has been aggressive all along
but this was too much!
(Yes, I had to go for a tetanus needle.)
