"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

True Confession

Okay. I admit it. Tonight, I bit Watson. I know. Shameful isn't it? However, in my defense, he was on our side of the barn, and he was standing there right below me while I was up on my beloved wooden spool. What else could I do? Temptation is a strong catalyst. Like Mark Twain, "I deal with temptation by yielding to it."

Or, could it be, Marigold, that you are jealous of his beard? Hmm?

What did Watson do?

Marigold said...

Dear Terry,
He was standing there. For shame, for shame.

Marigold said...

Dear Kathy,
Jealous? Me? Perish the thought.

Terry Golson said...

No, no, Marigold, I know that just standing there is enough of an offense to deserve a nip. I'm wondering what happened AFTER you bit him?

Marigold said...

Dear Terry,
He is a Fainting Goat...you can imagine.
