Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Growing up we raised chickens. The chickens ran free in our yard around our house. One of the old roosters used to be a fighting chicken. The old rooster enjoyed chasing, our brother, A.J. The rooster would chase behind A.J. and jump on his back. A.J. would call it ugly names, at times. This was very entertaining. Daddy didn't believe the old rooster would still fight. However, one day while we were at school, dad went to get coal for the stove. The old rooster jumped on daddy's back. That night we had chicken and dressing.
