“IT’S ME AGAIN AUNTY GILL”

Dukes Diary Front PageHi Duke the Rooster! Thank you for coming again. Hi People! Yes Duke has arrived again and he will be writing regularly here. He comes all the way from Uncle Spikes  farm in  TURKEY. You can see his lovely home here on this link:  Uncle Spikes blog   

Yo Aunty Gill

It’s me, Duke-Cocka-Locky, your nephew from Turkey saying hello on your blog thingy, coz I’m a real 21st century bird; but ya know that already I guess. The other day you said that you missed me, and also that your blogging friends seemed interested in me. Now I find that very strange; I’m just a young rooster after all, not even a Number One yet. But I have decided to write every month to you, right the way through all of next year too. Farmer Spike even lent me an old laptop to use in the coop to write this – cool or what??

Won’t be long and it’ll be 2015 – Woo hoo!

I was wondering. Does it change where you are too Aunty Gill?? My reckoning is that as soon as it does change, I’m gonna be three years old, coz I know I was bornerised in 2013, but Farmer Spike says it doesn’t quite work like that. What does he know, eh? But then again, I was asking Bonzo the Farm Boss the other day, and he said he has grown by 9 years since I came along, 9 years…! Maybe Bonzo is just no good at sumz, but he seems like a clever dog, and Farmer Spike is always saying to him “Who’s a clever dog then, eh Bonzo?” I don’t know… my head hurts.

Anyway Aunty Gill, talking of Farmer Spike, he will start to chop lumps out the trees quite soon. I remember him doing that last winter time, and then he drags it from all over the farm and then they have a mega-big bonfire on the night that the New Year arrives. I don’t know what’s that all about, but to be honest, I’m as bit scared they’ll try and cook me, so I’ll make sure that I’m first into the coop that night, just you wait and see! What do you think Aunty Gill; have I got the right idea? Gosh, there are so many things to consider, now that I am getting older. I guess I’ll need to learn lots more stuff like that before I have a go at becoming a Number One rooster.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAI wonder what you will be doing for New Year Aunty Gill, and what your blogger friends will be doing too. Do you all stay tucked up in your coops like me, or become pretend fire-gods like Farmer Spike?

Byeeee….

Love, your Rooster Nephew, Duke xx
