Celebrations, Chickens, and Conjunctivitis!

What a crazy past July4th weekend! I have been meaning to post about it except of course at the latter end of it, I ended up getting pink eye! Yay for the V. Conj.! ick. So it was quite a whirlwind of activities this weekend! I guess the best way to post is just to list the random
things that happened!!

Friday afternoon - Jamie and Meredith came down from upstate to visit for the July 4th weekend, and we had a wedding proposal in our rowhouse! Congrats and now we can NEVER sell our rowhouse!


Saturday we decided to trek down to DC for the fireworks with Randy and Kristy, where we bbq'ed and saw the famed DC display! It was really nice and we had a great time, and luckily didn't hit any traffic! YAY! I am also now in love with Kristy's ferret, and really want one! SO CUTE!
Sunday, we ended up going out for some breakfast and randomly get a call from our neighbors, saying that there is a chicken in our alley! So of course we had to finish off the weekend racing back up and seeing if it was true - and of course, there was a live chicken hanging out in our alley! Only in Baltimore! Joe of course then had to chase it around a little bit...We found out there were actually quite a few roaming chickens around our neighborhood that day (from Animal Control)! sooooo random! lol!


And... the weekend ended at the pool finishing up a Java project...and the next day, ended up with the V.Conj! ewwww, my poor flappy eye!!! I won't post of picture of that! ick!!

Chickens roaming the alleys!?!? That's a new one! Maybe they'll run off the undesirables that are usually back there. Could be a new safety strategy for the 'hood!

Wow! Somebody lost their flock! Urban chickens are actually legal in Baltimore, but, not free-ranging urban chickens....


Now if we could get some geese, THAT would be an awesome alley security system. Those buggers are mean!
