What do you want for Christmas?

So fellow scrooges (or not) what would you like for Christmas this year?. I will kick it off with my wish for a new front door, so anyone know of any good carpenters in Southern Marche, please let me know. Second on the list is a chicken coup for my long awaited chickens...who have had names for 2 years now!...A


You WILL get your chickens A - eventually - look you got your steps, didn't you?Here's a joke for you to start with A - not a Christmas one but we liked it!Can you get married in HEAVEN?On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple had a fatal car accident.  The couple found themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting, they began to wonder:  Could they possibly get married in Heaven?  When St. Peter showed up, they asked him.  St. Peter said, 'I don't know.  This is the first time anyone has asked.  Let me go find out,' and he leaves.  The couple sat and waited, and waited.  Two months passed and the couple still waited.  As they waited, they discussed that if they were allowed to get married in Heaven, what was the eternal aspect of it all.  'What if it doesn't work?' they wondered, 'are we stuck together forever?' After yet another month, St. Peter finally returned, looking somewhat bedraggled.  'Yes,' he informed the couple, 'you can get married in Heaven.'  'Great!' said the couple, 'But we were just wondering, what if things don't work out?  Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?'St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard onto the ground.  'What's wrong?' asked the now frightened and confused couple.    'OH, COME ON!', St. Peter shouted, 'It took me three months to find a priest up here!  Do you have ANY IDEA how long it'll take me to find a Lawyer?!'

Thanks S&M and Carole, these chickens have been a long time coming, Al I caught Robert looking at your link....just looking?, and the names are, Gertie, Olive and Hilda, well my aunts were ancient as I said, we will see...Just a thought, rare breeds?, not being precious just interested, how Mario next door might scoff.Sarah, what would you like for Christmas?A

I had this rare breed of chickens for years.  They were very attractive and their baby chicks looked like little furry blackberries.  Bet they're hard to find in Italy - shall I bring over some fertilized eggs?(No, I've no idea how I'd do that either....)
