The Story Of Miss Red Chick

"Cluck, cluck.." "Yeh, you heard me...cluck cluck...."

" missed a spot on the floor!", yells Miss Red Chick. "Oh, and while you are at it,you need to polish that glass cook top and do your dishes!", pipes in Vintage Chuck the Chicken.

The crowd of little Dutch children cheer Miss Red Chick on as they peer over her shoulder. They are the kitchen supervisors and oversee my every move in the kitchen. Bossy little ones!!!!! No wonder I always feel like someone is watching me! Cause they are!!! Hey, do you think they will yell at me if I eat one of these cupcakes?

.......let me see............moving closer to those tasty treats..........fingers stretched....mouth is watering....icy cold glass of milk awaits me on the counter........ A booming voice yells:........"STEP AWAY FROM THE CUPCAKES!!!!!!!!!".....and the crowd claps.....sssshhhhhhhhhwwaaaaaaa!...more golf claps......

"Ok, ok," I say pouting and walking away empty handed. I am forced to drink my milk with no gooey chocolate chaser....


Miss Red Chick, who is the creation of the lovely and ever-so-uber-talented Laura at Lallee's cottage.
Vintage Chuck the Chicken - an old friend
Kissing Dutch Children - previous orphans at an antique store
Cupcakes - another sweet creation of Laura!!
