Theme Thursday.....Egg

A couple of months ago, I gave away a $50 toaster oven. We weren't using it, it was collecting dust, I tried to sell it on craigslist at a low price, to no avail. I wanted it to be used so I listed it free to a good home, and it was gone in a day, to a neighbor, as it turns out. In return she left me these lovely eggs from the chickens she doesn't have (chickens are not allowed in our village).

I was so thrilled to receive this lovely, unexpected gift, on top of being thrilled to have the toaster oven move on to where it was needed.

So here's my bit of abundance for this week's Theme Thursday.

Nice trade! You can do a lot with 8 eggs. It's the unexpectedness of them, that makes the trade that much better.

Sounds like a good trade to me, but I guess the eggs were really a thank you gift.

I hope you enjoyed them.

Thank you for sharing.

God bless.

Why the apartheid policies towards innocent, freedom-loving chickens?

A nice exchange!

I'm not sure of the reason for the ban on chickens, but was total by a neighbor and board member that technically all animals excepts dogs are not allowed.

I suspect, because we're a small, rural, farming community that the intention was to maintain some decorum and lack of animal waste in the village itself..livestock is welcome in the township, outside of the "downtown" area.
