|The current issue, April-May|
The February-March issue of Mary Jane's Farm (one of my favorite mags) featured an article on keeping chickens. In it, the writer praised Buff Orpingtons as a great, gentle breed. I sent a letter to the editor about how Buffs are one of my favorite breeds, too -- especially my sweet Thelma, who died last year.

I'm sure you're all sick of seeing pictures of her by now...
The editor sent me a reply email and said that he'd shown my letter to Mary Jane (yes, there is a real Mary Jane) and that she'd really liked it and it might be in a future magazine. I just figured that they said this to all the girls.
They printed my letter! I was SO excited! I know it's not as big a deal as actually being featured in an article (as one of my antique-dealer, blog friends was), but it's pretty cool to see one's own words and name (and blog address) in a magazine.

Thanks, Mary Jane's Farm! I guess this is my fifteen minutes of fame...
