    I like to think that she is drinking a cocktail, suitably and probably in wistful memory of a dear departed cock. However this theory falls down as the artist is likely an American (given the architecture of the distant barn, the traffic flow and the “roadside” lounge), in whose lexicon “rooster” is more commonly the label for the male chicken as opposed to cock or cockerel usual on my side of the Atlantic.

    Cocks crow in the morn to tell us to rise,
    And he who lies late will never be wise;
    For early to bed and early to rise,
    Is the way to be healthy and wealthy
    And wise.
