In a Rears?

Have you ever been in the rears?
or in a-rears?
That may be a term that really dates me.
I remember my parents making comment about something in a-rears.
Here I define:  Behind on payments owed.
Sometime we get a little behind...on things.
Say what?  Chicken ____



 I laughed when I ran upon these chicken pictures.   I kept finding pics of my chickens walking away...I do not think these are very good...this one is fuzzy but...



I  followed the little girls around and round that session with the camera.   
Some pics were better than others....I thought these were all 'over looks'..


Until I noticed the pattern...all 'walk aways'.  
'Reverse views'.  
Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Don't get me wrong...I love these chicks.

Mary:  "Hey girls,  wait....more pictures...Wait!"


Merry,
Mary

  9. They didn't want you to take their picture. It's as if they are saying, "Get off my lawn!" HA HA

  14. Well, these are some really cute chickens! :) Yes, I've heard of the saying 'a rears'. When I was a little girl my daddy was a life insurance salesman and when he would tally up his books he'd say so and so was in a rears - they hadn't paid their premiums.
    Be a sweetie,
