Letting Go

Earlier this week the girls went into town to run errands and to buy some chicken feed. They came back with more than just chicken feed. They came back with more chickens to feed. So five new chicks are living in the shed, under the heat lamp, until they are ready to join the little flock. And I can't complain. Not only are they fun to sketch, but someday, months from now, they'll start converting our kitchen scraps into eggs.

Does Anna read this blog ever? 'Cause I think she'd be pretty appalled by the way you depict her as a heartless monster in your comics.

Ben Hatke said...

She never NEVER reads it. And if she did see the terrible way I depict her she would just scream "IT'S TRUUUUUUE!"

Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you
knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one?
Thanks a lot!

Also visit my web-site; discounts

Haha... know how that goes with uh, detaching oneself from things... but baby chicks? FTW. We're getting goslings soon, can't wait!

Ben Hatke said...

In its next service pack, maybe Anonymous will get a sarcasm detector.

Ben,
I want to, er, 'share' your comics on my facebook page, but there's no facebook share button. Why not? Do you not trust that I will credit you? Because I totally will.

Check out my website! http://greatdealsnow.com

Hey watch it there Johnny D, Anonymous is my best fan. And I bet that Body Mass Index Chart website rules the school.

I should set up a facebook share button. I should get a new website blog that's not just a blogger blog.

I should do a lotta stuff.
