"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

Sometimes you can just be standing around munching grass and life hands you a surprise. Me, I like surprises. So imagine how delighted I was yesterday when what you see below arrived in the mail!

A most handsome goat. But that isn't the best part, no, indeed! Do you see what is there on the left side?

How about now? Yes, my friends, those are Peanuts skillfully crafted by Lisa over at Pink Porches! Of course she sewed the handsome fellow too, but those Peanuts, well, they are to die for, don't you think? Now just how cool of a surprise is that? There is a strawberry too. It is very cute, but the Peanuts ... the Peanuts are definitely where it's at!

It is very easy to understand why this goat looks so satisfied. So the biggest of THANK YOU'S to Lisa!!! Now, when I can't have the real thing, I can look at these Peanuts and dream. Dreams are good, you know. Go and visit Lisa and see if you can find a dream of your own, though. Mine's already taken.

"I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each other's dreams, we can be together all the time." - Calvin and Hobbes. What a nice thought. Do you suppose Peanuts dream too? I sure hope so.

Awww "shucks"-you gotta love the peanuts. (hee-hee, see what I did there?)

So happy that you're happy!

I'm so happy your dream came true. I love the sentiment of always being with those we care about in our dreams.

I must say goatmother - I continue to dream thru you and all of the goaty/farming blogs I follow. Ah, someday I will join you all . . .

Congrats on the great peanuts, Marigold - you can worship them from afar.

That is very creative. I need more time in my life to think of creative things. I'm sure you can relate, being busy with thinking about peanuts and all. What fun, to receive a surprise!
