Episode #142 "Chickens [NOT] Back on Board"

...bad egg-timing?
She didn’t know it then, but one day she would be cleaning their nesting boxes.

Howdy folks:

Elder daughter helping build the original coop.

Included in today’s installment: Mike is missing his daughters and pondering the price of eggs. This moves him to revisit a piece from Peaceful Persistence addressing both of those topics and including a reference to Lawry’s Seasoned Salt.


Bonus link to a video of Mike’s younger daughter leading a flock of chickens across the yard.

Ruling the roost.

Thank you for listening. We don’t take your time or interest for granted.

P.S. Sometimes people ask Mike, "Why—in blog posts, or social media posts, or this Voice Mail—do you sometimes refer to yourself in the third person, as if you were a professional athlete?” Answer is because although most of the time what you are reading on those platforms is typed up by me (Mike in the first person), I also have a helper who prepares some of our communications, and also sometimes it’s just more expeditious to use the third person for general announcements and whatnot. That said, first person or third, Michael Perry intends to continue giving it 110%, taking it one game at a time, and giving all credit to his teammates.

P.P.S. New book out.
