My friend Gordon, after many years working in the government and most recently in downtown Ottawa, decided to pack it in and go back to what he really wants to do: live on his farm with his lovely wife Natalie, enjoy his chickens and bees, and go back to practicing criminal law.
Natalie asked me to make him a cake in honour of this big move. But what to do? Then it hit me! Immortalize my favourite of their flock (the poor, bottom-of-the-pecking order Chicky) in a mug shot.
The little chick protesters were a later brainwave...and they make me laugh every time I see them.
