Said Hat.... er, Bonnet
Well, you have to be tricky..
I first wrote the names on torn scraps of white paper,,hAh,hAh, thinking to disguise the white paper as bread.
But Fiona wasn't buying that one for a minute and honked her displeasure, along with the rest of the chorus,
So next, I cut up bits of white bread, ( a goosies favorite treat) and numbered 19 pieces, marked each name with numbers to correspond, as seen above.
OOPS! This is not your job, Claudette!
Numbered Bread goes into bonnet and gets a good shake.
Now, the idea here, is to get Fiona II to take a piece of bread and then I shall snatch the hat away to see which number has been removed. The problem is, I can't seem to get her to do it.
As soon as she comes close to choosing, some other bird distracts her. She is not nearly as cooperative as Fiona I!!!
I move said Bonnet all over the yard, hoping someone will choose a "name".
But nary a taker! Of course, it doesn't help to have a Peacock intimidating anyone who comes near the bonnet!
Everyone runs off!!!!
I move the bonnet to a garden and alas, finally someone is willing to play the game.
Eugene and Prudi come closer....closer...
And quick as a lick they yank FOUR"names" out of the bonnet and devour them before I can snatch the hat away!
SO here are the winners, not one but FOUR, and NOT chosen by Fiona Goosefeathers II, but by two trusty chicken-folk. You can always count on the chicken-folk to be hungry.
Corresponding names to missing bread.
Okay, here we are:
Heather, from Everyday Graces
Anna, from Fairy Garden
Anita, from Castles, Crowns and Cottages
