I hope you folks know how much I appreciate your good and kind thoughts on my oldest daughter's affliction. Many of us bloggers post about kittens and such, so please forgive me as I post about my progeny. She is doing well after a lengthy MRI on Wednesday which showed no signs of cancer migration. Another scan in a few months will reveal the same I pray.

Camry and I were visiting the other day in the hospital and we were talking about her younger sister Castle's creativity. Castle can't have a myspace page so she has been creating word pad documents for her own amusement as if she had readers. I lifted the photos she pasted and edited the shortened
"teen-ease-sms-aim-shorthand" from the document. I am gathering she saw a menu item that inspired this little photo report on the elusive Maple Chicken and thusly the Chicken Tree.

The Maple Chicken Tree

The Chicken Tree is a very rare specimen.

Have a good time looking at my site.....

Aren't they cute?

Maple Chickens grow on the Maple Chicken Tree.
Yeah, pretty freakin' awesome.

Their fears: enough said...

The food they eat...yum?

In America people wonder if the Maple Chickens eat
the Maple leaves...well we have the answer for you,
right here, right now!

It's freakin' awesome!

(In the fall) they eat the Maple leaves,
and this is what happens.

weird huh?

Thank you for taking the time to read my page.
It means soooo much to me.
I hope you had a great time looking at my site.

this page is not alligal [sic] in South America.....its not even a real page

Many thanks to Miss Castle for her information/perception on the Maple Chicken Tree. Thanks also to her big sister for bringing it to my attention and sending an attached file in her email to me.

Carry on my sweet girls and don't make matters worse, love Dad.

Jed, My apologies for having not keep up on my blog reading due to my own selfish woes and I'm just now reading about your dear Camry.
I am so relieved to hear that her prognosis is great and that she is doing so well. She is a brave soul much like her father and I will keep her and you and the rest of the family in my thoughts and prayers.

BTW, thanks ever-so-much for the kind words you left me, Tennessee Jed. See you soon, no doubt! Hope the grrls will make it out for campin' later this month.

Every fall I have to rake all the feathers to the curb for the big truck that sucks them up and takes them to the factory where they make down blankets.

Will continue to channel bored gods for your daughter!

I'm glad to hear the melanoma hasn't migrated. She's so young to have this.

LOVE the Maple Chicken Tree! I want one for my yard.

Hello from a local blogger! I was actually googling "east tennessee spiders" when I stumbled across your blog. Nice to meet you!

I hope your daughter gets another good report at her next doctor visit!
