Roosters in the wind

This afternoon it was sunny and warm with temperatures right around 70 degrees- absolutely lovely for late November-until a strong cold front decided to come through. Now the weather-guessers are predicting that by tomorrow morning reality will set in and daytime highs will only be in the mid 30's. The drastic change in temps ushered in a stiff wind late in the day which seemed to cause a bit of trouble for the marauding roosters. I should have video taped them as they tried to brace themselves against the wind, walking like drunken sailors.
I like to call these pictures, "Roosters in the Wind."

 "Anyone else feel a draft?"

 "Dude, seriously, I think your junk is showing."
OK, so maybe my "Roosters in the Wind" pictures are not nearly as beautiful....or classy.. as my friend Nancy's "Ewes in the Mist" photo that she has entered in a photo contest, so maybe you should skip on over to her blog and help her win the photo contest.

I was sitting here chuckling at your rooster pictures and your hilarious commentary, and then I saw your nice note about my entries in the photo contest. Thank you! That was very sweet of you.

It's amazing how someone with such a dirty mind (his JUNK showing!) can be so nice...


Love you!

They are certainly handsome. It is funny to watch them out there with tail feathers billowing!

As always, your posts entertain me endlessly. BTW-I think Roosters like to show off their junk.
