No, it isn't the year of the Rooster. I know that it is the Chinese year of the Pig. However, I was born in the year of the Rooster. My first year here was in the year of the Rooster. I live on Rooster St and I even have those feathers sticking up on the crown of my head.
It only seemed right to collect Rooster items. My first was a needlepoint rooster made by my daughter and it steamrolled from there. I even have a couple chickens to keep those rooster's happy. I have received so many rooster items...(and thank you to everyone). My son advised me to collect Benjamin Franklin's but I didn't listen. Boy, was I stupid or what?
