Only in Oklahoma

I can't remember if I've mentioned before, but I'm taking a two week intersession class over JFK and the assassination. One week of the class is over and today I made the trek back home for the weekend.

I stopped at the usual place and noticed a chicken hanging out by a SUV. I didn't think much of it except that I wanted to take a picture to show my mom. So I did then went inside. When I came back the folks who owned the SUV were just standing there not knowing what to do. One of the ladies told me she thought the chicken was hurt so I took a step closer to check it out. It just stood up and sauntered off. The family couldn't believe that a chicken was just hanging out at a gas station and even followed it to the other side of the car to watch it some more. They were pretty easily amused...I wouldn't expect so much interest in a chicken from Arkansasans (I can talk about Arkansas since that's where all my folks came from :)

Happy Birthday Dad!

That sounds like a cool class.

I love going to the Keys (Florida) because of all the chickens that just hang out everywhere.
