Why did the chicken cross the road?

Well there are interesting, far reaching suggestions and then a historical perspective:

The riddle appeared in an 1847 edition of The Knickerbocker, a New York City monthly magazine: ‘There are ‘quips and quillets’ which seem actual conundrums, but yet are none. Of such is this: ‘Why does a chicken cross the street?[’] Are you ‘out of town?’ Do you ‘give it up?’ Well, then: ‘Because it wants to get on the other side!’  (Wiki)

But, I doubt anyone ever considered “to get to the seafood place”! Just saying…….

It rained within a few hours of this shot…you can just accept the old saying: Red Sky Morning Sailors Take Warning…Red Sky at Night Sailor’s Delight or feel like you’re back in school with this NOAA explanation.

I used the dime as a reference point for size. A small U.S. coin, that gives scale to the size of the trout fly patterns in the collage at the top.

Times Past, Bittersweet

“There are four kinds of people in the world, Ms. Harper. Those who build walls. Those who protect walls. Those that breach walls. And those who tear down walls. Much of life is discovering who you are. When you find out, you will realize there are places you can no longer go, things you can no longer do, words you can no longer say.”   P.S. Baber, Cassie Draws the Universe

“A doctor can bury his mistakes, but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.” Frank Lloyd Wright

“Places draw us to them for reasons beyond the feeling derived from the five senses…some deeper recognition is at work, felt through a unextinguishable animal sensibility.” Peter Smithson
