Yes, I would stay that she scared the pee out of me but I was already well taking care of that! I was just not prepared for someone standing there as I shut the door. But after having a few minutes to give her a quick glance, I was thinking that she would make a dandy "scarecrow" for my chickens. Years ago I had Eve...
She served her purpose keeping birds out of my garden. It was really pretty funny because we would watch people as they drove by on the road running in front of our house and they would be waving at her, thinking she was real. But time and the horses quickly took care of Eve. She was stuffed with hay and the horses found her to be quite tasty.
So back to the antique store and The Bathroom Lady, I quickly called Buddy back to the bathroom to show her to him. He agreed. She's pretty cool. I asked the owner if she was for sale and after making a quick phone call, her price was named, we made a deal and we loaded The Bathroom Lady in the back seat of my truck with Jacob. Our next stop was to eat lunch and we thought for sure someone was going to report us to the cops for leaving "this person" out in the truck in the heat!
The Bathroom Lady is now standing proudly out with the chickens in hopes that she will help keep the hawks from zooming in on the chickens.
I've had to wait for the rain to stop with the torrential downpours before I was ready to put her out. I'm really glad to get her out of my house because she was sitting in a chair next to Buddy's recliner eyeballing him....gotta watch the Bathroom Lady.
The turkeys haven't quite figured her out....what? No red toenail polish to peck at? Hmmmm, I might have to give her some painted toenails...
What I do need to give her is a name. I can't keep calling her The Bathroom Lady! I thought of Corinda but it just hasn't clicked yet. If any of you precious bloggers out there come up with a name, please share. Surely there's got to be something better than The Bathroom Lady..
