The plan for this evening is to transport our lovely hen house to the Newaygo County Fair. We were fortunate to be able to borrow a small trailer to move that heavy Chicken Palace - much easier than us 2 senior citizens lifting it onto the box of a pick-up truck (which incidentally has been outfitted with a lift kit by the previous owner!). We've delivered many chicken homes to our customers in that fashion, but upper body strength is something I lack, and as wonderful as Mr. Wonderful is - he just can't lift it that high by himself!
Yesterday I finished staining, and today will be adding finishing touches to the project. The girls have been watching and hoping that this new home will soon be theirs, but Mr. Wonderful refuses to lean that direction. His plan is to sell this display model! We advertise our structures unstained to save money for the general public, and also to encourage the entire family to complete the fun part - the painting and decorating! We imagine parents and their children getting away from their TV's and computers, using their creativity, working as a team to complete a project that can be uniquely theirs. What could be more fun?!?
Playin' it Fair -
