July 5, 2013– I was pouring my cereal this morning while reading the morning paper and I came upon the Daily Horoscope section. I was hatched in early June, so that makes me a Gemini. Under the astrological sign of the twins it states that today, my social energy is going to be “fully powered up” and that I am “certain to run into someone that is destined to play an important role in my life’s story”. So freaky! Ten minutes later, I was on my way to the recycling bin with my arms bundled high with old newspapers. I tripped over a wayward log that sent me stumbling into Mom’s outstretched arms. While we gathered up the papers that had fallen, she asked me what I thought about making a backyard movie. “There hasn’t been a good poultry flick since Chicken Run!” she teased. “This is right up your alley, Happy. The making of a summer blockbuster might be the perfect project to keep you all out of trouble.” It’s as if she had read my planetary prediction and made it happen. I must say that it left me feeling a bit unnerved, and yet, I immediately ran back to the coop, logged onto EChicken, the online auction site for poultry, and bid on a 1950’s Kodak Brownie 8mm movie camera. Crazy, isn’t it? On the hottest day in July, Mom tossed me a virtual water balloon filled with joy. Fully powered up, I am. Just as my horoscope predicted.
