Chicken Tetherball Tournament

Welcome to our 2nd Annual Chicken Tetherball Tournament.

The contestants and spectators have been eagerly awaiting the tournament, which is held each year when the cabbage is ready for harvest.  The cabbage is tied securely and ready for play.  
So, let's play some chicken tetherball ...

The contestants take their marks.

The action is frantic as contestants try to get a beak on the ball.

The determination is palpable.

Watch out Barney, Pansy takes her tetherball pretty seriously.

Looks like Pansy was planning her attack.  The crowd watches in stunned amazement as Pansy steals a piece of the ball.

Uh oh... There's a flag on the play.

What? Barnie's throwing down the challenge flag.

"Quit goofing off.  I'll accept the penalty", says Pansy

Game back on.  Let's have a clean game girls.

And the winner is ... drum roll please... 
Ginger, the tetherball queen.


  1. That was too funny!! Looks like the girls will be having a Merry Christmas!

  2. As long as we keep the cabbage coming, the girls will be happy. Fortunately, the cabbage harvest this year will be a good one. That means eggs of the deepest orange color. Yum!
