"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

I'm Baaaa-ack!

Well, here I am again. Finally. Actually, I am so far behind that I am ahead, but there has just been so much eating to do that I just haven't had a moment to spare. Take, for example, the scene you see above. Now there is an advantage to living in a place that tends to have the occasional high wind in which the trees seemingly battle to stay upright. It means that trees often lose and fall down...and that means we get to eat the spoils of war.

Now, as you can see, everyone gets in on the act. There are a couple of significant points I would like to make about the above picture. First of all, please note that the goatmother DID NOT take the time to capture my best side. In fact, I think she did this on purpose, but that is beside the point. The other thing I would like you to note is that the U.S.S. Boo actually can get at least part of herself off the ground if the reward is significant enough. This actually has not gone to her advantage since the goatmother now realizes she actually can get up on that stand to have her hooves trimmed.

Oh, well. That's life. Sometimes sacrifices have to be made.

Nobody looks good from that angle, Marigold. Sweet windfall salad bar, though.
