A chicken and an egg are lying in bed. The chicken is smoking a cigarette with a satisfied smile on its face and the egg is frowning and looking put out. The egg mutters to no one in particular, "I guess we answered that question."

One of the nice things about working part time is that I can volunteer as a parent helper on school field trips. SD had one today to the Rainbow Ranch Petting Zoo. 2 teachers, 6 adults, 21 kindergarteners and 23 first graders boarded the bus a little before 9am. 4 other adults followed in cars. It rained yesterday so we were prepared for a muddy farmyard. Luckily there was a break in the rain this morning while we were there. We saw rabbits, goats, swans, ducks, deer, horses, zebus, zebras, donkeys, miniature horses, an ostrich, an emu, sheep, llamas, a peacock and a cat. There was even a farm dog (a Great Pyrenees) named “Stella.” At the end we wandered through a corn maze. We were going to eat a picnic lunch in a local park, but after we re-boarded the bus it started raining heavily again, so we ended up going back to the school. The kids enjoyed themselves and behaved for the most part…a successful outing!
