Thanks for the invitation annieyokie I do not even sing in the shower my kids told me off for that years ago I cant think Why !!!!! you know us men we are great at all things trev Sorry to hear about the rooster
sorry guys, it's been a while, I was busy investigating the intended sabotage on our planing committee , still don't know who sent the cat Bonnie won't get off my back now about organizing professional singing lessons for the other two ladies. She reckons if her voice hadn't been so outstandingly well trained the cat would have eaten all three of them - Ronja and Lili needed to be able to fend for themselves, because she'd be touring the country very soon (she deferred the Europe concerts while the volcano was playing up) and thus can't guard them all the time. Here goes my next salary Anne, I actually quite liked the idea with the underground heating, much more comfortable for them. I found a manufacturer who uses really well insulated cables
I'm not too concerned about Hippy, after all she seems to start earning her keep by laying giant colored eggs I'm sure you have heard about the phenomenon that dogs and their owners start to look very much alike after a while, I assume Hippy is just blending in with your family In a way I wish all chooks looked like her, MUCH easier to sex sorry about your rooster, too. I've come to the conclusion that you should start taking on any unwanted roo's from now on to counter those losses, and have taken the liberty to put an ad up for you on chooknet , I'm sure Ross won't mind building another pen or two
ANYWAY, good news ;D the ABC has decided that our orchestra should be the one who accompanies the next contestants of the "Young Performers" competition in the final stage instead of WASO ;D ;D They've noticed a decline in applications and are convinced that the prospect of working with an ensemble like this under Mr.Verbitsky's direction would spark huge interest in the competition. ;D ;D Of course, all our birds are invited to apply as soloists as well, they'd presumably all fall under the age requirement of being under 32years old (if not I'm sure we'll make a lot of money out of them by selling their photos and story to the media :

Speaking of cats ,I know why they are after our birds .I went to see CATS last night and found my birds had already checked out the talent . You should have seem Ross face when I pointed out on stage 4 of our chooks blending into the alley scenery on stage and 8 sitting in the front row .(they must have seen my tickets ) .Anyway when I questioned them last night after the show they were discus-ted that cats were dressing up to be humans !!??!!just to sing .....Low self esteem they reckoned..... and why was there not a show .........................called ....."CHOOKS " ;D ;D ;Dor......ROOSTERS REVENGE. ;D ;D
They also now know where Pianochook can get lots of cockroaches to batter and fry ............the alley was a pigsty they told me and any self-respecting cat shouldn't be seen in a rubbish bin...certainly a chook wouldn't I'm sure the cat around your place was in with the CATS team . our troupe are certainly a threat ...those cats are out to get us .
You can see below what I found in the pens yesterday
Fluffy Grinch paid us a fleeting visit yesterday and I'm hoping he passed on the message to start hatching chicks for the choir ,they still want Trev's chicks to even if they wont be able to sing .
They may be able to play tambourine's . Trev's chicks will be bigger than your silkies so they can be a backdrop to the silkies ...they will need to keep in time so maybe a bit of metronome training wouldn't go a miss when they hatch.
.Found snooping around the backyard

Those cat's are out to get us all right I'm glad you got a close-up of that white chicken, that's the one I saw in MY garden, too (I was wondering why I suddenly had four chooks but I was blaming my blood pressure, affecting my vision ), and it's the only creature who could have opened my fridge and tempered with my salmon - have been sick for days!!! What has the world come to??!!! Thanks for the info about the cockroaches, much appreciated ;D how did you know I was running out of them? My local IGA has stopped stocking them, heaven knows, why It's probably the cat's fault, too, I've heard rumors they signed a petition, just to upset my poor little darling girls
Trevor, mate, you have to be strong, we REALLY need you and your chicks, and they HAVE to be singers, I'm afraid I had a meeting with Mr. Verbitsky and he's thinking BIG, as in BIG I'm talking Mahler, Beethoven, all the favorites with huge orchestra and chorus, so for goodness sake, sing !! Remember, you live far enough away from everything and everybody, nobody would mind, or assume you're strange ;D ;D
Anne, how could you possibly suggest someone else could be assigned to play the tambourine??!! Did you not notice the T-shirt Pipa was wearing to the audition? On the front you could read in big letters "Life is not worth living without Tambourine" and on the back she had printed a copy of her tambourine diploma from CNSMDP (which is short for "Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris", of course ), and "Le tambourin, c'est moi!!!!" So there is no way anyone but Pipa could do the job apart from that, her audition was breathtaking! The entire cast was moved to tears

well, pictures would not have done it justice - she just created this incredible musical tension, the perfect timing, dynamics, everything! It was as if she made the planets align and suddenly the meaning of life became tangible, if you know what I mean
;DI didn't get a picture of Pippa either but i did catch a glimpse of your Light Sussex,Pianockook ...Lilli ...It seems despite her elegant denial of a need to dress provocatively she has a hidden side ...This was taken in her dressing room .... ;D
Lilli in her dressing room
A small bird told me that you pianochook have been practicing Flight of the bumble bee ..
. :oFluffy chook I hope you birds have been practicing. this act will soon be ready to go .
I to had confirmation that The ABC is thinking of using our orchestra as the one who accompanies the next contestants of the "Young Performers" competition . 8-)I feel some more practice secessions are on order .A few local sporting teams may like to use us as a fundraiser ... ???Anyone any ideas. We need lots of practice and if we keep them busy it might keep them out of the night clubs
Trev.. Pianochook is right we need all talent we can get..... Sing..Sing..Sing

Well Annieyokie I did it unfortunately even the sheep ran away and would not eat there food that will tell you something, and my one and only broody hen took off and has not got back to her eggs that was two days ago trev
;D ;D Trev, you will need a manager! I'm convinced you will be inundated with requests - all the chook owners with broody hens that need to be cured....what a niche! ;D
Anne, what do you expect, Lili is MY girl, so of course there would be LOTS of hidden, dark sides, you don't wanna go there... I personally think she's pretty hot, don't you?
..as to the Bumble Bee, that's right, I have been practicing, the version for violin and piano, are any chooks out there who can play violin and feel up to a challenge? The bee is currently bumbling at 160 per crotchet, so I'm taking bookings ;D

Iv found your sheep Trevor ... ......She arrived at the latest Lingerie Party that was at my place last night...what do you think of her latest look ...she seemed to have vast amounts of cash ;D ;D she may have been selling something before she arrived? Tthe other girls were there Lilli,Bonnie and Ronja(credit card in hand) from pianochooks and Fluffy ,Beauty from Fluffychooks and some others I didn't recognise as well as the ???Ducks .. ... . Not sure who they belong to but they did look like Wendysducks..... and were exhausted on arrival at the party so they could have come up from Bunbury
Trev ....There was a mixed response on the Chook raffle. Some thought ..horror of all horrors a ???cooking chook A few heart attacks on that one (had to bring out the rescue remedy for them) ... The other thought it could be a way of becoming a star if ........ " THEY WERE PRIZE" and would go to a GRAND HOME
Other jealous birds suggested a sheep raffle...
Trevs sheep in all her trappings

wow, Anne, those outfits are just spectacular!!! The sheep's AND my girl's new ones. But how come I never get invited??!! I know, I know, it would look a bit silly on me, those things are more designed for chooks and sheep....
I reckon we need to start getting little name tags with address and telephone number for our sweethearts, so we know where they are coming from My girls have been on the computer all day, checking out google maps to get directions to Toodyay, they saw Jacquie's roosters and are beside themselves Lucky they've got the new lingerie, that was great timing, because I think they're off to pay a visit tonight
Last Edit: Apr 27, 2010 16:49:47 GMT 8 by pianochook
I know her I`ll bet her name is BAAABra from Bullsbrook I have her number in my little black book but I must ad she has a new hair doo from the last time we met I remember it was a blond colour with lighter trimmings "I must leave the wine alone" or change my smokes Trev
Ross (OH) got excited when he saw her (barrrbra) too . Hes an ex kiwi, Iv had to ban him from the computer.
I think I should have got an invite to the lingerie party too I think the chooks are worried we might upstage them if we turned up at the next pencil auction in our purchases (little do they know) ;D
These are some of my mystery guests last night ... You can see Lilli has really decided she can be seen now .....also in there is Fluffy having a go on drums ...apparently Grinch has been giving her lessons when visiting .Beauty... ;D ;D ;D.and if you look carefully all you WAP's you may see your chook s:o Watch out Fluffychook you may end up with drums in the back yard ... ;D ;D council rules on drum noise??? :: )
Spot your chook
Pianochook did you chooks go up to toodyay to visit Jackies roosters after the session at our place ?,a couple of mine disappeared ..still not back
