Small Home in the Country locked down after local PRISON BREAK !!!!

Small Home in the Country locked down after local PRISON BREAK !!!

**** Warning – pictures may be graphic – ****

Outdoor Wednesday logo 

This news report is part of Outdoor Wednesday with your hostess- Susan at


A  prison escape happened just before sunset Tuesday September 29,2009.  It happened at the Owl Canyon Penit-HEN-tuary. The escaped convicts should not be approached as they could be armed and dangerous. Some may call them “ JAIL BIRDS “ but, we don’t want to give them a label….you decide. This is the picture that was captured at the local watering hole…..





The JAIL BIRDS are known as :

Left Fingered OSCAR

Mack – AKA The Godfather

Two Timing Peggy

How did they escape out of the high security prison you may be asking yourself.  This next image was captured on film – judge for yourself *** Warning the next image may be graphic ***



This prisoner happens to be “ON DEATH ROW” , yes, he is counting his days and seems to be making the best of them.  He wears a bright red coat and lately his name has been Satin.  If you follow this blog you may have seen this same criminal breaking out of jail in the spring and making a ruckus.  Officials aren’t sure yet how Satin broke down the high security fences (and gate) to break out the JAIL BIRDS –it is under investigation.

Meanwhile, Prison Guard Officer Grady Tucker is gathering up the JAIL BIRDS……


Wait, we seem to catch Officer Grady Tucker off guard….


Much better –


Get a load of the unruly hair style on Left Fingered Oscar. Remember what prison does to these people.


Meanwhile back at the Penit-HEN-tuary – his days are numbered and he isn’t budging…. Here stands Satin – as if nothing happened…… We are checking the freezer space at this moment…..

The following prisoners DID NOT ESCAPE….

this is not a paid announcement and no money exchanged hands) End of commercial.


Until the prison is built again – the JAIL BIRDS will have to live in the large compound aka the barn.


We leave you with these images…




Sorry – I got allot of imagination.

Hugs ~ Kammy

What a great and funny post Kammy! Love it!

Kammy-The doctor definitely did not remove your sense of humor during surgery--it is alive and intact! Left fingered Oscar is really something. Satin needs a sign like Chic fil a: Eat mor chikn!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Cute post Kammy!!! I was deputized many times during this same sort of prison break, over the years. One critter in particular was very wiley and renamed hamburger after several escapes!;-)

Happy ODW!

salmagundi said...

Fun post!! Glad you are back from surgery, and posting with your old sense of humor. Love it!! Of course, I live in the prison capital of Colorado; so we occasionally have a real jail break and they lock down the schools. Scary in real life - yours is a lot more fun. Sally

Lou Cinda said...

Kammy, this was so CUTE! I was laughing out loud and showed it to my husband!!

Love it!!

BECKY said...

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh Kammy,
I love the pics! What a cute story, you had me going there. We really do have a prisoner that escaped yesterday and he hasn't been caught yet. I like your prisoners a lot better! Hugs, Cindy

Lori E said...

We had an escapee from the forensic psych ward last week. Now I see it was you. Crazy lady, how fun was this post? Fabulous
How beautiful those fugitives are.

blushing rose said...

LOL Kammy. This is darling. What characters for a humorous write.

Terry needs prayers & support. Her hubby was in a bad accident today. Terrytreasures.blogspot.com

Have a lovely autumn week. TTFN ~ Marydon

Suzanne in TX said...

Kammy--I'm about to pee in my pants after reading that post! HILARIOUS! Your pictures are so fantastic--what type of camera are you using?
Hey--thanks so much for the "advertisement"! I need you to email me a picture or two so that I can add them to my Happy Pets slide show on my blog! You must be feeling tiptop again--so glad!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

OMG!!! Loved your post. It was freaking hilarious!!! What an imagination. Satin did look like dead man walking. My niece just decided she wants to be a vegetarian. Not a vegan, a vegetarian. She'll still eat eggs & dairy products. I never could be either one. I love me some beef & chicken too much. In fact, we are having steak tonight. It's what for dinner! Thanks for the laughs. I'm still giggling thinking about your post. Probably will be all night.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Funny! :-)

nannykim/spindle cottage said...

Well, they are all so cute (and I am a mostly vegan because of cholesterol issues ;-)

LV said...

Well, your post took the cake for outdoor Wednesday. You should be a writer with all your imagination. You picked a cast of actors.

This was the funniest thing I have read in awhile. Keep it up and you could have a book in no time;-)

Jane said...

How blessed to have so many animals!! I have always wanted to raise chickens but we always lived where coyotes were a big problem. I have lots of pets now- thousands in fact as I have 2 beehives!

Such a fun post!


claudie said...

Well I'm not a vegan so I can laugh my head off...lol
LOVE IT Kammy.
First time here, I think. Going to bed with images of burglars in my head...
Happy OW
Love Claudie
P.S. My word verification is CAPERS..hehe

You need to write a book! That was cute, and the pictures are such high quality. Glad I stopped by!

Sue said...

I think you are feeling much better these days! This is cute. And that Oscar definitely needs some sort of product to tame his wild feathers... Loved the post, Kammy. It made me smile.
hugs, Sue

Cute post.

That was a fun post. I don't think I have ever visited your blog before. I am going to check it out further when I get more time.

Hootin' Anni said...

THIS was a hoot!!!! I LOVE your imagination. I got the biggest kick out of reading this.

I'm glad you stopped by this morning. I lived in Colorado [the front range...ummmm, just north of Denver] for over 40 years. Until we retired to the TX coast. And we were at the Rockies games since their first year in 1993...even followed them to Tucson for Spring Training!! GO ROCKIES!!!

Hi Kammy, This is my first visit to your place..I love all of your pictures of the farm animals.. I think your black and white chicken is the best... her flashy hairdo is so cute..thanks for sharing this great post today..hugs, Baba

Mary said...

I'm glad you're back from surgery with your sense of humor intact. This post was hilarious. Have a wonderful day :-).

Bonnie said...

Your photos are wonderful. Loved the story that went with them.

Brenda said...

I got a good laugh with my morning coffee, Kammy! Boy, that one does have quite a "hairdo" doesn't it? Bolt the doors shut and clamp down the windows. Might be extremely dangerous times until things can get back under control. Cute, cute!

CurtissAnn said...

Oh, you are a clever girl! What a wonderful post. You bring back my years far in the country. Loved seeing your 'criminals'. LOL! You are blessed, thanks for sharing.

Riet said...

Oh my goodness what a funny post . I am going to follow you right away. LOL. If you are looking for some hens they might have flown over , I caught a picture of them in one of my last posts. :)))
Your pictures are beautiful. Have a nice day and watch out.

Ms. Bake-it said...

That was a great post Kammy! I had to grit my teeth so I would not laugh out loud. It would have been too hard to explain to my boss why I was reading a hilarious blog instead of drafting a motion...

Although, as a vegan, I did overlook the explicit references! ;) Loved the critters - especially Left Fingered Oscar!

Thank you so much for the needed does of humor!

Darlene said...

HAHAHAHAHA what a fun post!!!!! Great pictures too. Might I say that you MUST be feeling MUCH better!!!!!♥

Susie Q said...

Great post and Gunner is a very handsome fellow...I can't tell if he has a tail...where did you get him? We just added a female ACD puppy to our male...he's red, she's a blue and will be darker than our last female...how funny.

Actually, I'm very surprised Satin let them out and not Gunner. We decided long ago that if ACDs had opposable thumbs, humans would be in a great deal of trouble...right now Duncan is all over Scout (the girl ACD), but as soon as she is bigger than he is....right now they will share the same LONG rawhide chewy...

Susie Q said...

Oh yeah, should we start petitioning the landfill to have a section for the furniture that people toss? We can offer to woman the office, that way we get the good stuff before it anyone else does (and we can hit up the paint recycling to use!)

Joy Winner-or-Whiner said...

Great story!
I've never seen jailbirds with such cool colors.

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

What a wonderful post. I love it when I'm entertained!

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Love the jailbirds, especially the black and white one .

cherry said...

Fabulous what fun I will be emailing this story to everyone that I think needs a good giggle...lol
hugs, Cherry

Shirley said...

That was too funny! Especially since I worked in a prison and we did have an escape. It wasn't nearly as much fun as yours.

Maria Berg said...

Yes that how I all work and you lucky that not ALL of them escaped!

I have been looking at you new kitchen - like it and I like that you take us all the way from old to new, MB

Yes the spider is only plastic we did play around, MB

Pam said...

Oh my what a wonderful menagerie you have there. I enjoyed your delightful story...

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

LOL Kammy! This made my day!

Left Fingered Oscar is too pretty to be a rooster...better watch him as I think he is framing Satin...lol

I love Colorado! My little grandson lives there so that is where my heart is.

jeanne said...

Kammy I love your jailbreak. Those jailbirds need to stay in control. Thank you for the great chuckle.


LDH said...

LOL You are a funny person!

Eileen said...

This post is adorable!
And I love the birds!
Each one so different yet so beautiful!

I love your home, inside and out!
All the best,

kjquilts said...

Those three remind me of the movie Oh Brother Where Art Thou. Left Finger must be wondering where his pomade is! Too funny!

Michael Lee West said...

Kammy, this was so much fun. We've got a few chickens. Our cutest is a teeny "attack" banty. He charges Bandwith and pecks his shoes. Little Jimmy is 3 inches tall.
Love your glimpse of farmlife.

storyteller said...

What a MARVELOUSLY entertaining 'outdoor Wednesday' post! The Camera Critters bloggers would LOVE it too! I'm so glad you dropped by Sacred Ruminations and left your link. I've been so busy all week I've not had much time to be at the computer so I probably would have missed it. I love your imagination and look forward to returning to check out more posts as time permits. Hope you have a lovely weekend.
Hugs and blessings,

Wendy said...

Too funny! Our girls (and one rooster) are roaming the yard right now. Would love to have a donkey & some cows though. Great post!

Barb said...

This is tooo adorable!!!

Love the wild haired one there!

Rainy Day Farm said...

Hilarious! I just love it!

Dawn said...

Awe, I didn't expect Satin to be so cute. Didn't realize you live at the funny farm either!

Good job on the rug too. (I'm blogging backwards tonight!)

Anonymous said...

I laughed out loud at this post! Too funny! I love the jailbirds, esp the bad "hair" on Oscar. And Two-Timing Peggy - LOL! I hope Oscar and Mack are aware of the situation. hee hee!
