Winston Churchill Day, National Chicken Little Awareness Day, April 9th

Winston Churchill Day

Here are some Winston Churchill quotes to ponder on today, as it Winston Churchill Day. The chosen quotes may or may not have something to do with our other holiday today.

"A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject."-Sir Winston Churchill

"Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened." -Sir Winston Churchill

"One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half." -Sir Winston Churchill
National Chicken Little Awareness Day

I'm not sure how we are traditionally supposed to celebrate National Chicken Little Awareness Day, but I was able to take advantage of Draw a Picture of a Bird Day, and I enslaved the creative genius of my favorite five year old, and she composed a work of art about Chicken Little, specially for my blog readers. Of course, she made me draw a picture too. Because I know that the people that read this blog love me, and won't make fun of my artistic ability, even if they have degrees in art, I am posting my picture as well as that of my favorite five year old's. I bet you can't tell whose is whose! ;) I will admit that my composition was inspired by my favorite five year old's composition.

Before figuring out which picture belongs to whom, we need to know how nice this 5-year-old's penmenship is.

I like her sassy necklace! But it doesn't make sense. With such excellent accessories to be had, who would ever be looking for a disaster?

Dang, I knew the writing would give me away.

I knew that I should have tried to fix that necklace, because it's actually a bowtie. :)

BUt you are right, isn't Chicken Little a female in every story but the new film version? I should have done a necklace.

It's a necklace everyone!

Actually, I thought Chicken Little was always a boy. The Little Red Hen is a girl.

I guess I'm just counting all my chickens in one basket.

I thought it was an ascott.
