About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Yes, hockey. My husband may not be a hunter...thank goodness, I dont care for dead animal heads all over the walls as decoration for the living room, BUT he is a sports fan. He loves soccer the most, but loves hockey almost as much.

When an opportunity came up to get free tickets to the Thrashers game tonight...http://thrashers.nhl.com/ well you know we were going to be going.

Now I have never, ever been into sports. I was always supportive of Ians soccer games while we were dating and even early on in our marriage. He had played since he was 8 years old, and played til his body wouldnt let him anymore, so now he has to enjoy the game from the sidelines.

He puts up with my chickens, Shelbys horse and rabbits, I guess we can go to a hockey game.

There is one thing I will say. We have been to two of them before. Once you have been to one live, you will understand. It is a lot of fun if you are actually there. Watching it on TV is so boring compared to being there.

The blare of the horn when they score...the Thrasher bird head coming open at the mouth and blasting hot flames from its mouth...the music, the fans...it all comes together when you are there in person. On TV they dont show the Thrasher bird shooting flames...I like to see that.

I wonder if they allow cameras? I want to take some pictures!

So, I better get off my rump and get things in order so we can be ready to go this afternoon.

If they allow pictures you can be sure I will post them here tomorrow. :)

That is so nice of you to compromise with him and go to his game with him.  l can't wait to see pics tomorrow...hope they allow them.  I'm not a sports fan really either...just love pro football and high school wrestling.

I think it's great you are going with him - and like you say it is so much different live.  My cousin & I used to go to Hockey games all the time - but I can't watch any on tv....snooze alert!!!  Have a great time and I hope you can take pictures...catch a puck too!

I agree.  Hockey is no fun on tv but a blast in person.  Have a great time!

Hocky was big in Canada, too.  Every tiny little town has a hockey ARENA.  Not a hockey rink...a hockey ARENA!  LOL  But I've never been to a game.
I'm a football fan (go Ravens!) but have never been to one of their games either.  I like PBR (Professional Bull Riding) and did get to see some of that in real life.  WILD, man.  
Love your blog.  I remember coming here before and thought I had you on alerts but apparently not.  You are now though.  I could never hear too much about chickens.  I'm glad you found me. Thanks for visiting my journal.
