Old Dud,
Billy save me. Me sew happy that he good at flippin those birds into a pot.
Just tink. I coulda ended up in some slobbering kids hand.... chewing on my feets.
Tossing me aside when da next great thing comes along.. Cabbage Patch,
Beanie Babies, Tinkle Me Elmo, Transtormers, etc.. etc..
Prolly end up in some pot of stew...

Living the dream now... but...
Things weren't always so great...
before eye cleaned up my act I was drinking and hanging with some suspect birds:


Trying to catch on the big stage:


Chasing cold hearted women:


and just being the life of the party:


Got no complaints nowadaze. (though tanks for the Merry Xmas back-at-you... not!)

Nose how good I got it. Maybe times are rough for many peeps out there.... I just count my eggs.
And just hope can continue to enjoy my beloved Yosemite

Peace,
Chick-on is looking at you!

It looks like Chick-on was living an Un-Savory life in Sin City! It is a darn good thing that Goatie rescued him and showed him some good, clean livin' in Yosemite.

Thank you so much! This really helps settle the question of who came first: the Chick-On or the Old Dude...

Wutt. No way you get the shear of a cliff w/o some serious calving.
(and I just lookie at "How da Eart wuz Made" ... and it said da same thing)
(i.e. half-a-dome go ca-ploo-ee)

Old Dude, weigh in. And I no mean step on the scale. Although you needs to make
sure that you don't put on 20 pounds outta state der big guy. Then again, perhaps
you need not weigh in... cause if you disagree w/mwa you'll be wrong again
(as usual).

The face did form by calving along a major joint caused by undercutting as a result of glacial flow down Tenaya Canyon probably by the last glacial episode. Plus there is the talus slope which indicates just normal exfoliation. Only about 20% of the dome was removed but Eighty Percent Dome doesn't sound good. We've had this discussion before.

This was the Chick-on Adoption Agency in Las Vegas.

Then you got snared by the old "Bait and Switch" scam?
They lured you in with a promise of a 'real' chicken, 'discovered' that they were fresh out, and sent you packing with a factory reject (after you conveniently beat yourself senseless with the mallet).

Low sulfur content, please.
A few metric tons should keep The Marmots for the winter.
Call them before delivering to be certain that they will be home (they will need to deactivate the Chicken-activated Claymore mines).
