"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

Well, What Do You Know ...

I spend a lot of time on my stump thinking. You might have noticed that. Fortunately or unfortunately, as the case may be, so does the goatmother...spend a lot of time thinking, that is, not standing on my stump. Nonetheless, as of late I have begun to notice while reading the blogs of others, that people often try to ask questions via the 'comments' feature. It occurred to me that it might be a nice thing if those of us who were 'like minded' individuals had a chance to chat and get to know each other, share happenings, share thoughts on life in the country, share thoughts on goats and other animals, share Peanuts... Okay, maybe that is going a bit far, but you understand. I had to try. So, I mentioned this to the goatmother and she has agreed to be the human moderator of a Yahoo group in order to help my brain scheme come to fruition. So, for anyone interested, there is now a brand new Yahoo group entitled, not surprisingly, Marigold's Meadow. I look forward to perhaps getting to know some of you a little better!

Go here and click on 'Join This Group'. The goatmother does approve memberships just so we don't have any Homegoat Security Encroachment issues caused by evil spammers and the like.

This is a wonderful idea!! Thank you for thinking of it and for facilitating!! Now I'm worried, though...will my membership request be approved?? Guess there's only one way to find out. :-)

Dear Farmgirl and Farm Mama,
Did you go to the Marigold's Meadow site and click on 'Join This Group'? The goatmother didn't see a membership request for you, but I am here to tell you, we would love to have you. :)

Yes, I did this last night. I came in under the name "nellie" :-)

Farmgirl...could you try again? For some reason it didn't come through. Computers! Oy.
