The New Year’s Party was wonderful. The Stage Crew finally got Cricket off the ceiling by popping the balloons, one at a time, until she was low enough to grab. When she was asked how she liked being up so high all day and night, she said, “I loved it. I could see EVERYTHING.” The chicklets thought she was outstanding.
The Poetry Club, above, received a standing ovation, as did the tumblers. The warming bunnies hopped to a hip-hop song written by a lovely Dutch bunny who just came to The Coop two months ago.
Two of the chicklets wore gowns designed by Resa and Holly sent her usual truck load of food which delighted the chicklets and the hens. They said Holly makes the best corn bread they have ever had. And that’s saying a lot.
Two of the horses stood on their back legs and turned in a circle. Then they neighed a short song and took a bow. It was amazing and they surprised everyone, since they had kept their act a secret. One of the chicklets got on stage and showed everyone how to knit. There was a lot of flapping and chirping for her act, since she is almost brand new and this was her first party. The Vocal Club peeped several songs in harmony and everyone danced to the songs the DJ played. There was also a sing-a-long and lots of games.
Gondola rides, around the Rubber Duck Pond, were a popular treat and the goats took everyone for hayrides in the carts.
The chicklets are hoping humans will be kinder to animals in the New Year. That they will eating them, hunting them and using them for clothing. That they will stop experimenting on them or forcing them into Factory Farms. That is their only wish.
Those rescued guests, who were still in the Hospital Wing, were read and sung to by chicklets. They were also surrounded by Warming Bunnies, who snuggled around them and sent them warmth, love and healing energy.
A huge pajama party was the final event of the evening, or morning, actually.
Today the chicklets will begin the clean up, and start working on the Valentine’s Day Bash and the Art Gallery sets. They have a lot of ideas and Cricket said she would wear the balloons again, if they thought it was a good idea.
