Little red hen

She was out by the road, right close to a sign...a stop sign I think.  We did stop for me to take a pic.  Isn't she pretty.  When I was little, I really liked the story of The Little Red Hen...do you remember it?

'why did the chicken cross the road?' comes to mind...

Your little red hen reminded me of my young days. My mom keeps a very small farm behind our village house. We reared pigs, ducks and chickens. I used to play with the animals in our little farm.

A fine shot of this pert looking hen. I don't recall the story. My loss.

Yes, I too always like the Little Red Hen story. Even now a lot could be learned from the stories of our childhood by the children of today. Instead what do they have to impress their little minds? Just look at TV programming. No don't!

Always favorite photos for me.
And a friend of the little red hen; Henny Penny---the sky is falling, the sky is falling.
