"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

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise ...

Guess what? It's raining.

Really? Surely not.

No. I'm sure. The roof is leaking.

But I thought you've already had enough rain for the century - maybe even the millenium.

Apparently not.

Have you looked? Are your hooves starting to get all pruny???

No. Webbing. Webbing is starting to grow in between.

You don't say. Well, cheer up. Summer has to arrive eventually.

I can't wait. The Peanuts are soggy.

Oh. Well perhaps then they will sprout. You know, grow some Peanut plants.

You are far too optimistic.

It's the same here. Dreadful. Miserable. I think my neck is starting to develop gills. I think I should have stayed in Iowa.
