The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Parking - Chickens Only

Brownsville, Tennessee

Sometimes the things I find are out of my being momentarily confused, but I never get lost.  This here is an example.  I pulled into this empty parking lot (it was a Sunday and the hardware store closed) to turn back around and found this.

It wasn't like he (or she) was right next to the store, no this was set up halfway out to the street.
A chicken mobile home.


  1. Perhaps the parking is not in heavy use and by night the chicken mobile home is stored somewhere inside.

  2. You made my day, this is so funny, a mobile chicken home, had a laugh!

  3. Oh my. Maybe it is a hint they are fed up with it all.

    Hope someone will drive away with it. I mean how did it get there right.
    Hey people are known to do unpredictable things.

    People will take it even if it means getting something to move it.

  4. folks call 'em chicken tractors. they can move them around the yard to allow for picking and scratching and eating.

  5. Just one chicken in it? That seems highly unkind to me.

  6. That's too funny sitting there all alone in the parking lot.
    Smiling and grinning here.


  7. That would be a great one for those Urban Chicken keepers.

  8. As the saying goes, sometimes life is stranger than fiction. :)
