"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

A Little Fraternization

The Homegoat Security Team has been operating at top efficiency...or so we thought. But we all got a bit of an eye-opener when the goatmother was cleaning the barn. Now in the barn are two wooden pallets...sort of barracks bunks, if you will. It seems that when the goatmother raised the pallet on the right to clean, several baby mice ran in all directions. Remember the mouse that literally begged to join the team awhile back? The pretty much useless one that could only point when it really mattered? Indeed it would seem that someone , supposedly on duty scanning the night against security threats, was, in actuality, entertaining. Great Capricorn in the sky!!! Is this an embarrassment or what?! Talk about dereliction of duty! Still, I suppose we could use a few more sets of eyes on the team. They did seem fairly swift on their feet and quick thinking. That is except for that last one that peeked it's nose out of the remains of the little nest several minutes after everyone else had dispersed. He kind of looked around as though someone had just turned the lights on and then just casually sauntered off. Perhaps a new branch is in order to accommodate that one ... something along the lines of Border Banal Rock Violations?
