In our continuing travel diaries of the Chain Mail Chicken Cousins, we find Cluckin’ Chuck in Illinois with his host Jeff Lynch from TwoLight Photo. We’ll let Chuck take it from here as he describes his travels:
I arrived at Jeff’s house on a Saturday afternoon but no one was home and the mail man left me on the porch. I wasn’t discovered until sometime on Sunday. At least I was in a box and covered in bubble wrap. I’m still trying to figure out why you would bubble wrap a rubber chicken but that’s a story for another day! Once Jeff rescued me I was grateful he gave me a breath of fresh air first thing!
Jeff wanted to give me my own room but we soon found it it was a little too small for me!
Jeff got me settled into a larger room that he said was air conditioned and that is the preferred spot for my kind when they visit. I was skeptical at first but soon I felt like I was back home in Canada.
I could sense the fun was going to start soon. I got to do all kinds of fun stuff while in Illinois. First thing we did was go through something called a car wash. Let me tell you, I was sure glad I was in the car!
I went to a local car show but wasn’t all that interested until I saw some food! And I do have to agree with the graffiti I saw there!
I went to the local art center and got to see something called a darkroom and somehow got stuck in a box. Fortunately a key was found and all was good. When we left Jeff said we should leave a donation for the art center. I wasn’t amused that Jeff volunteered me as the donation.
The Farmer’s Market was a lot of fun looking for vegetables but I got pretty tired and took a quick nap on some corn.
We even went house hunting but it was pretty hot so when we got back to Jeff’s house I wanted to cool down a little. I found a nice cool spot but didn’t stay long!
I also discovered that train tracks were a lot harder to cross than I thought!
I thought it was pretty cool that Jeff provided me with a warm sleeping bag so I wouldn’t be cold at night in that special chicken room!
I got to meet some new friends while I was here although one was a little nutty.
All in all, I had a great time but was excited about heading to Quebec City to meet Michele! You can see more pictures from my adventures with Jeff by clicking here
