Different Insights

We're waking up to another Saturday and

Have you ever wondered what the fox tail epidemic is all about?

I have.

At the Minnesota Renaissance Faire they seem to be everywhere you go.
On animals, critters, Fairies but also humans and Pirates!
Excellent answer here.

"So you're a little weird? Work it!
A little different? Own it!
Better to be a nerd than one of the herd."
Mandy Hale
And continuing-

Did someone mention chickens?

(lay eggs, it's what we do)
said the bravest chicken. Cluck, cluck, cluck

Chicken flock some where in Alabama.
(Sorry, all the chickens at the Renaissance were too shy)

"If you hang out with chickens, you're going to cluck
and if you hang out with eagles

"You will soar!"

you're going to fly."
Steve Maraboli

What do you think you'd get if you crossed
a chicken with an eagle?

Maybe this?

Or maybe not!
BUT-Seriously, crossing a chicken with an eagle isn't such a silly thing. There actually is a youtube video about it.
See it here.

"A sense of humor is good for you. 
Have you ever heard of a 
laughing hyena with heart burn?"
Bob Hope

"I think the scariest person in the world,
 is the person with no sense of humor."
Michael J. Fox

So why not be silly, and share a bit of nonsense together, right?

"After all these years,
 I am still involved in the process of self-discovery.
It's better to explore life
be lighthearted
 and make mistakes 
than to play it safe.
Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life."
Cheerully carefree
that's what it's all about.

Sophia Loren
and Me.

I've made three or four mistakes, maybe.

I love small town fairs and festivals. I just missed our Fall Fair at the farmer's market because we were out of town. So sad. - Margy

Looks like everyone had a blast!

(Except maybe the chickens?)

What a fascinating reason for wearing fox tails. I doubt it worked though. Fleas would have preferred warm smelly skin to cold smelly fur.

This really is a fun post...makes us all wish we had been there! Happy weekend!

Never heard of the fox tail thing.
You are in good company with Sophia!

Cloudia said...

It would have been very interesting for that girl with the tail to make it look like it was part of her own hair.

Super shot of the majestic eagle Karen, not so much the crossbreed between chicken and eagle! Hope you're having a fun weekend 😊

Enjoyed this post so much! Humor is such a gift from God. It brightens our day, makes our relationships better, and is such good medicine. Just watch anything with Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Sid Caesar, Lucielle Ball, Carol Burnett, or any other goofball from the 1960s and 70s. Silly silly fun. :-)
