I know that this is a strange question but the saying is, “Running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off.?” I don’t know if you have ever seen this happen but it is pretty funny. I have to tell you a little story about this before I continue on with my point I am getting to.
Years ago I had a friend with a bunch of chickens that needed to be butchered. We had a friend who was a really city girl. She wanted to help. Her job was to hold the chicken while I chopped its head off and then she was to hold it over a trashcan to let it bleed out. Don’t want to have blood all over the yard because that will bring the bears into your yard.
She is holding a chicken as I grab its head and stretch out its neck then chop it off. When the body of the chicken starts wiggling in her hands she drops it and it starts running around. My other friend and I are laughing so hard we about pee ourselves, which doesn’t take much because we both had a bunch of kids.

Saturday night I went to my first women’s roller derby. It was a lot of fun but not as rough as I remember watching on TV when I was a kid. We had free tickets because Midnight Sun Brewing brewed a beer for them and David helps with the tour there every Thursday night. Anyway I hope you enjoy the photos.
Have you ever been to a roller derby? Let me know by leaving and answer in the comments.

It is 37 degrees, 5:30 at night and dark that is Alaska for you. It is so much warmer than I can remember in a long time.
