Rooster Roll Call


Col. Beauregard, sort of

I'm sitting in the living room on a rainy afternoon listening to the neighborhood rooster roll call. I believe it's Colonel Beauregard I hear crowing downstairds representing our house. He's quite shy so I don't have a photo of him. He looks like the rooster above except he's white with just a few small spots of black. He's very handsome, indeed. I think of him as salt-and-pepper looking.

The other morning (thankfully a Sunday), Col. Beauregard hopped onto the roof of the carport, scrambled up to our bedroom window and gave us a nice, big good morning crow. Two out of three of us found this amusing.

It reminded me of the craziness of the film, The Egg and I starring Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray.  1947.  Love that movie.  Look it up, if you can.  If you can't get enough Fred MacMurry, then also check him out in Double Indemnity (Barbara Stanwyk, and Edward G Robinson) or The Apartment (Shirley MacLaine and Jack Lemmon). I love him in both where he can be seen playing men who are not so nice.  

Colonel Beauregard and Fred MacMurry. That's how I roll.
