Green Eggs Enlightenment
July 11, 2008
You live, you learn. The farm (below) has Araucana chickens. A pure breed chicken.
That lays green eggs. Origin : Arauca Indians of Northern Chile - Blue and green eggs have been reported...from the mid-16th Century onwards.
Got that from a Web site that has, well, maybe not TMI, but certainly PMTNTK. (plenty more than need to know). Such as, this Chilean chick apparently has a feature that many of us strive for, in tortuous workouts and agonizing diets - it's rumpless. So, one more confirmation that life is stranger than Seuss. God rest his soul, in the place that he's gone....
P.S.--Speaking of egg, check out the commitment of the woman quoted on the home page.
P.P.S.--Speaking of eggs, reminds me of one of my favorite town names that I've driven through in the USA - Two Egg, Florida, where "...We have
no city government, no city taxes, no city services and no city attitudes!" And where they have a forlorn ghost around Bellamy Bridge.

Lowa went to one of the organic farms on the island today to fetch eggs. (Sometimes I refer to her as Lowa, because great friend Bob's daughter, when she was 3, one time uttered with great angst, while quite upset with her mother, "Lowa, you're my best friend in the whole world!" Sometimes spouse goes by La, because her best friend in college called her that.)
So, the egg story. She brought home a dozen, freshly laid (not lain, although the farm was down a lane, not lain). Most were white. A few were brown. Two were green. Green! And nearly round.
So, of course, I asked her only the most logical question:
"Did you bring the ham?"
