A Chicken In Every Pot

Have you heard of a chicken in every pot?  I decided to photograph one of our chicks in a pot.  She is growing leaps and bounds.  Now, our chickens are egg producers first and pets second.  They kids are great chicken wranglers.   I do remember grandma wringing the necks of chickens and chopping the heads off and letting them go afterward.  At an early age, I understood the term "running around like a chicken with its head cut off."   I am sure that I could not kill one of our chickens.  My cook books just happened to be behind the pot.  LOL

You said a chicken in every pot?

What was that again?

Did I hear you right?  You said a chicken in every pot???

Oh.   I see.

Now, how do I get out of here?

During the presidential campaign of 1928, a circular published by the Republican Party claimed that if Herbert Hoover won there would be “a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage.”

I have been making more pot holders.  I used the same basic pattern as the last one I posted, but I made an edging around using a single crochet 4, chain 3 all of the way around as the last row.  I also added velvet ribbon in one of them.  The ribbon looks like it does not match, but it really does.

I hope you and yours are doing well.   I wish you abundant blessings!  Dawnie
