Our Dear Friend, Barb.. who has been lovingly deemed our Mother Clucker will have a Birthday on the 21st of July. I sent this tin and card to her so she would have it in time for her Bday...
when I saw those 5.oo cards at Walmart that "play Music" ----I thought they were cool. Then I saw one on it with a chicken.. holding an accordian... when I opened it up.. I heard the "Chicken Dance" song-- -I KNEW it had Barb written all over it.
I took the card home... and cut out the chicken.. and ever so carefully removed the piece that controlled the sound... and moved it to a Target Mailbox-- so when you opened the lid... it played.. and when you closed the lid it stopped. I put the Standing chicken holding the accordian inside the door to greet Barb when she opens it. I hope it made it in one piece to her in this heat.. AND that it still "plays" when she opens it!!
Thanks for looking!
Happy Birthday -- MC Barb!!!!!
PS.. my family was soooo glad to see that thing packed up and GONE.... they were sooo tired of hearing the Chicken Dance song!!! It's a wonder I didn't wear out those hinges!! LOL

I didn't even open the mail box and I was in love, it was so pretty I didn't want to mess anything up. Kelly told me to open it and I almost wet my pants when I heard the chicken dance and saw the chicken with the accordion. I'm still rolling!!! Thanks so much Kelly

Okay, so what is happening here is that the craziness of the chicken dance music transfers from your household to Barb's household where it will drive her family nuts! And I gotta tell you.....Barb will probably open it 10 times more than you did! I can't believe you found that cool card with the song and jerry rigged it to fit the mailbox! Such a special gift! Way cool.
