Mermaids of the Lake

They really are just beautiful in their simplicity. As a child I spent many a wonderful moment on my Aunt Margaret's farm. She had banties and more. My little brother and I had a pet banty chicken there that had a broken leg. Aunt Margaret set it on a popcicle stick and let it live in the house. I loved that little chicken. We named him Herman.

Hi Tina -

Glad you are enjoying the eggs. Always use 2 to 1 large egg though. Let me know when you are ready for another bowl full.

And as Tony and I say, "scrscscrscrsrcscrs"

See you - Mike from Stone Hill Farms

That photo of eggs proves that eggs are pretty. I have a dozen and a half brown shell double yolkers that I think are wonderful, too.

Funny Tina- I lived in the country in North Dakota Farm region--


for so long- and I have never had or seen one of these kind of teeny eggs. I have had brown ones--

Gosh I think they would be so cute blown and painted for my Easter tree! do they taste different than regular eggs? & when you use this kind in a recipe, do you use two of them to make the equivalent of one egg?xo-Valery

I'm weepy now...and missing my Daddy so much. When I was growing up my Daddy raised Banty chickens and we ate Banty eggs...everyday. Even after we were grown and all gone away he raised Banty chickens. When my childhood home was sold after my parents' passing the new owners (like Mika's tub) bought BANTY CHICKENS and we threw the house and 3 acres of land in with the deal. I miss that - thanks for reminding me about those chickens and eggs.

DEAR TINA,
YOUR POSTS ALWAYS WARM MY HEART. I THOUGHT OF MY GRANDMOTHER AND THE EGG LADY THAT WOULD COME TO HER HOUSE. SHE WOULD CARRY THEM TO THE DOOR IN AN OLD METAL BUCKET WITH A WORN HANDLE. I ALWAYS LIKED TO HELP GRANDMOTHER TAKE THE EGGS OUT OF THE BUCKET AND PUT THEM IN HER EGG BOWL...IT WAS CREAM COLORED WITH A PRETTY RED STRIPE AROUND THE TOP OF THE BOWL.
THE EGG LADY WOULD NEVER COME IN THE HOUSE AND ALWAYS KEPT HER HEAD DOWN, LOOKING AT THE GROUND. I REMEMBER THINKING AS A CHILD...SHE MUST HAVE A BROKEN HEART.
ON THE DAY GRANDMOTHER DIED SHE BROUGHT A BUCKET OF BROWN AND CREAM COLORED EGGS TO THE DOOR. I MET HER AND SHE SLIGHTLY SMILED AND SAID, "YOUR GRANDMA WAS A GOOD WOMAN." I TOOK THE BUCKET AS GRANDMOTHER SO OFTEN HAD DOWN AND PLACED THEM EVER SO SLOWLY IN HER EGG BOWL AS I KNEW THERE WOULD BE NO MORE EGG LADY AND NO MORE TEA WITH GRANDMOTHER UNTIL HEAVEN.
MEMORIES....THEY CARRY US SO FAR

It's amazing how the simplest things in a group can be so beautiful. Very sweet!

I so want to go to the show in Canton! I hope it's a great success.

Eggs ARE beautiful, aren't they? I like mine brown but have seen them blue, green, aqua...all of them are a wonder! I sure wish I could come to Canton! Maybe someday!
Have a great weekend!
