Jonathan told me that I have to blog about our most recent annoyance, so here it goes. Lets start with the fact that we live in a newer subdivision in the city. Now, Lexington has many farms throughout the city. I mean, you can see horses grazing on your way to the mall. It's part of the reason this city is so beautiful with the rolling green hills and makes us different from other cities. BUT, we live in a subdivision nowhere near a farm. And so the story begins...

A month or so ago, Jonathan kept complaining of being woken up every morning at 6am or earlier by a rooster. He's a light sleeper so I just brushed it off and said he was hearing things. In the last couple weeks we'd be sitting in on the couch and he'd say, "did you hear that?" Well, it got to be a joke because I never heard a thing! And I told him that no one would have a rooster in a subdivision!

Sunday we came home from church and were walking into the house when Jonathan said "did you hear that?" So, I stood in the garage and listened and sure enough I heard a rooster over and over and over again. Jonathan said he was going to find it. He ran inside and got the camera because he wanted proof that there is a rooster!
This is the view from our driveway. Look closely!This picture is a close up! What in the world??? A rooster perched up on the fence?? That tall structure with the blue on it is a chicken coop! J got close enough to hear the clucking!
Here is another close-up of the little devil!

Luckily the rooster got a little confused with daylight savings time so he hasn't been crowing so early each morning. But each day he gets a little earlier and earlier. Not that the morning issues bother me, but if they bother J, I'm sure other neighbors are upset too!

We tried to contact our HOA and they told us that they aren't our HOA anymore! Where did our dues go to? We have no clue how to find out who our HOA is managed by. I'm sure having a rooster and a chicken coop is against the Home Owners Association's Rules! Someone needs to do something.

And just to show that I don't HATE roosters, here is a pic of the top of my fridge. When we moved in, I needed something to take up the space and I found this metal rooster and just had to have it because it was too funny and made me laugh because it's soo not "me". J hates the live one and the metal one! :)

That is absolutely hilarious!! Whoda-thought. I probably would have laughed so hard that I peed myself if I looked out my window and saw a rooster on a fence!

I just randomly came across your blog.

That is really funny. Sorry! Hope you figure out how to boot that rooster out of the 'hood.
