Yesterday the goatmother and goatfather walked out of the house just in time to see this sail across the yard. The Cabrarator was promptly put out of sight, although I imagine he would have had his 'talons' full had he decided to take a swipe at that one. Nonetheless, if Cabra thinks she's had a difficult time dealing with the Stick People, it would be nothing compared to what a trip with a young Bald Eagle would be like. AND, he landed in the tree right over our barn! Now what's up with that? Wait a minute. Oh. My. Goat!!! He was after the Peanuts. I'm SURE of it. Oy.
Anyway, Happy St. Patrick's Day! Maybe the Eagle is Irish and he was just out hunting for Leprechauns. Come to think of it, maybe we ought to help. That Pot 'O' Gold would sure enough buy a lot of Peanuts.
