The first thing you notice about the house is that several of the windows don't let you look inside the house. This is because she enlarged scenes from Snow White onto large pieces of particle board, glued them over the windows, and then put furniture behind them. So you'd look in the window and see a bunch of mice and birds making a dress.
So we're at her house, giving her back Pinky, the hollowed-out toilet recliner, and she offers us a tour of the grounds.
So the reason I call her Jan the Chicken Lady is because she ran a chicken rescue. She lived on a big plot of land and she built a bunch of pretty elaborate houses for these chickens that she'd rescued from... farms?
@BestGirlGrace this is the best thing ever.
we need more ~characters~ in our lives who live their most authentic weirdness, thank you for sharing!!
@selontheweb You don't own a tortoise. It comes to you when you welcome one into your life. Same with the chicken rescue.
@BestGirlGrace are we not all seeking our chicken rescue, anointing and preparing ourselves for our fated tortoise?
@selontheweb Barely a day goes by when I don't ask myself "What is my chicken rescue? What is my attic full of wicker? What is my Pinky?"
@BestGirlGrace here's hoping our toilet furnitures and furniture attics find us soon 💚💚💚
