Happy Birthday Timbo!!

Today I am here to wish a very happy birthday to Timbo, the creative genius who draws all of the ADORABLE images for Hambo Stamps!! The Bacon Bits are surprising Tim with a little birthday blog hop!! Won't you join us? If you arrived here from Michele's blog, fantastic!! If you just happened by, be sure to start at Karin's blog for the whole story and to have a chance at winning the birthday prize!

Some of Tim's favorite images he's drawn are all the cute Farm Animals. So all of the animals are heading to a big ol' party at the farm to celebrate with Tim!! This cute little chicken is setting off from here in Marietta, Georgia...

Chicken had to stop and ask for directions in Marietta. In Marietta, all directions are given referencing the... wait for it... Big Chicken! Chicken was told to take a left at the Big Chicken, then head north to Richmond.

So chicken headed toward the Big Chicken. But silly, silly chicken, he decided to take a peek inside. You would not believe what he found!! It was horrifying!!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKK!!!! He hightailed it out of there and continued on as quickly as he could to join his fellow animals at the farmyard party!!

Now off to Melissa's blog, where you can see what happens next at Timbo's Birthday Bash! If you get lost, here is the order of birthday fun:
