Back in St. Louis after our mini-NYC tour and it feels great to be home! We loved Manhattan but something about being in you own home with your own pets is priceless!
For those of you that don’t know much about St. Louis City (Missouri), I can tell you; yes the crime rate is high, but the perks are high too! For example, when taking my dogs outside with Jeremy and his dog we quickly came upon a flock of STRAY CHICKENS. That’s right, chickens, pretty young ones just squeaking on down the street. I ask around, but there seemed to be no home for these delightful little birds so one of my friends who owns a farm is going to come collect them soon.
In the mean time, I’m using the my home daycare’s playhouse as a coop and letting them roam in my secured backyard. But it’s a perfect example of what I love about STL– you’re in a city, but not really, you’re still going to find chickens, and front porch rocking chairs, and a never ending supply of boys who fancy themselves heart-breakers singing the blues.
In music news we’ve got a big season coming up!
It all starts out this Sunday at a killer house party at my house (firstname.lastname@example.org for directions) The Defeated County, our friends from the road The Please Please Me, Jeremy Essing, and Captured Planet will be playing tunes in the basement. We ask that friends please bring a small donation, or money to buy the bands CD’s but we’d rather you come than not in terms of that stinkin’ $$$ we all need! Party is getting started early, around 7pm since it’s a Sunday. I’ll have a MASS of snacks and some cheapy drinks to share but please BYOD or a dish to share.
As always, thanks for the support and kindness,
The Defeated County
