4. I never knew you could mail a rooster. Or Three. That was apparently happening when Moses and I went to the post office on Monday. Moses was amazed and dumbfounded the entire time we were in there...every time one of them crowed he looked at me or a nearby patron with wide eyes and his mouth completely open in shock. When we got to the front of the line the rooster crowed again and immediately Moses did his best impersonation...as though no one was in the crowded post office...at the top of his lungs he shouted "do, do, do!" to which each and every person in the place laughed and smiled at him. He felt like a celebrity. :)
