Good morning! Please adjust your computers, laptops, phones, and any other device you use to read the posts from the GrowingSelf blog. It’s about to get interesting over the next week… why, you ask? Well… maybe you should start by asking “who is this?” especially when the last post you read from here mentioned something about Momma Roda going away for a week on vacation.
I’ll answer that last question first. My name is JJ and I was named after my supposed doppelganger, mom’s brother, my Uncle Jay, probably better known to you as that guy who runs the ThisIsMyTruthNow blog. In case you’re curious what I look like, here’s a recent photo. I’m not looking my best (mornings are rough with that other rooster starting at the crack of dawn!) as she was busy when Uncle Jay asked for a new photo. Oh well… I’m still quite the attraction here at Indigo Acres.
If you’re now wondering how a chicken could be writing a blog post with feet like those, well… that’s for another day. The better question is… who’s helping me? For anyone who may not have noticed a little something peculiar exactly one month ago today, the wonderful woman who runs this blog had a little fun with my namesake and took over his blog for 2 weeks while he was away on vacation. Here’s the post where she diabolically planned the evil. Since Momma Roda’s fond of little phrases like “when the cat’s away…” I thought I’d help Uncle Jay exact his own revenge, after all, they say “payback is a…” Right? Psst… don’t tell her I almost used a bad word. She won’t give me enough feed when she returns.
So… for the next week while Momma Roda is away relaxing, I’m going to help Uncle Jay wreck havoc on GrowingSelf… or as I like to say… peck it to death! I’ll be kind and give the weekend a little quiet time, especially since she is just leaving in a few hours. But stay tuned and check in again Monday. I’m gonna dish on what really goes on around the farm that Momma Roda conveniently forgets and/or leaves out in her posts! But first, please enjoy a friend’s latest new dance crave…
