Chickens

Cooper Boone

Two days ago, I received a message in my inbox.  It was from a new friend, Cooper Boone.  As many of you know, I had the privilege and honor last month to travel to New York City and accept a  Blue Ribbon Blogger Award for Tilly’s Nest from Country Living Magazine. Up on the 44th floor of Hearst Tower, I was presented my ribbon and cloche from country crooner, chef and chicken keeper; Cooper Boone himself.  There we stood together, with his arm around me, as he read a lovely piece written about my blog.  I was touched!  He was a hoot and we even made small talk up at the podium in front of all the attendees. Once again, two chicken owners bonded over chickens!

Yesterday’s message, was to follow up with me to see if I had decided to enter our family Christmas tree in his contest.  I hadn’t yet.  Then, I decided why not?  It would be fun to be the winner and have Cooper come cook something up in our kitchen.  The kids would love it!  It would make a fabulous blog entry!  I would be in one of Cooper’s videos and it would be wonderful time to connect with and get to know our new friend!  Most of all, I would love for Cooper to come and meet all the girls in person.  He has been following our adventures on Tilly’s Nest since participating as a judge for Country Living’s Blue Ribbon Blogger Awards.  Tilly, Sunshine, Oyster Cracker, Fifi, Feathers, Dolly, Dottie Speckles and Autumn would love meet Cooper too!  I wonder if he would sing a tune for Tilly and the girls?  We just might have to convince him of that one, but first we have to win.
