Thought for the day


So many worlds, so much to do, such things to be, so little done.
               - Alfred Lord Tennyson

Two of my favorites: Waterhouse and Tennyson. 

Little Sis (at age 7 or 8) named one of our chickens Alfred, in honor of Tennyson.  When I asked her why, she said, "Because the chicken kinda looks like him.  He's weird looking and his poems stink."  *shrug* At least she knew who he was.

That's such a beautiful painting. I gave up naming chickens when we went past 50 of them one year. Unless they stand out for some reason -- like our rooster with no toes.
