... NOW I'm homesick...

It's always nice to see news from home:

BU-GAWK! Uegene Safken says he let his chickens out of their coop outsideof Collbran, Colo., and went into his house for a cup of coffee. Whenhe came back, he found one of his birds drowned in a tub of water inthe yard. He fished the young chicken out of the water and thought,"what the heck, I'll give it a shot," and gave it mouth-to-beakresuscitation. His girlfriend told him to give it up. "Leave thechicken alone; it's dead," Denise Safford says she told him. But, hesaid, "I wouldn't let that damn thing die." It worked: the chicken, hesays, came back to life and is now fine. It wasn't so bad, he says."I've kissed worse." (Grand Junction Sentinel) ...Let's just hope he doesn't mean Denise.
