"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

No More Complaints

"Mammy!  Mammy!  The crops is failin'!!!!!"

Have you ever seen a goat roll their eyes? Gardener Goatmothers.  Oy.  Such a drama queen.

No more complaints from me, though, about the weather.  Not a peep.  Not a baaa.  I'm keeping my hoof over Boo's mouth too.  I just heard on the news that at least 40 states will be 90 degrees or above this week.

Dear Big Guy,
Pay no attention to the little goat behind the screen.  She is really quite satisfied not to be frying.  Really. 
Thank you for listening.

Your friend,

It is hot and stupid outside. I could definitely use some snow. It was wrong of my Human not to store some snow in the deep freezer for us to use now.

Marigold said...

Dear Turbo,
You are absolutely right. The human should have done that. I could send you some rain and you could freeze it and then grind it into snow. Maybe that would help.

We will also send rain from New Zealand. We have plenty to spare.

We goats are certainly feeling like baked goats with a heat index of 110 right now.

Dearest Marigold,
Have a word with the goatmother about air conditioning in the barn for those too warm days. I mean, you are definitely worth the extra electric bill so you and Boo stay nice and cool. Just be thankful you aren't a sheep with a coat of wool. ;)

As long as I can convert the rain into snow, I will take all I can get! This year I will be in charge of snow storage. I guarantee you that!

Marigold said...

Dear Staples,
I am sure the parched ones will appreciate all the help we can give them.

Dear Millie,
Oy! Chevon is NOT on the menu! You need a fan!

Dear Kelly,
I think I will need to donate my fan to Millie or to Turbo.

Dear Turbo,
Dang right! Someone has to keep your human on the ball! That would be the snowball!

Stay COOL all y'all!

I say we all go to Mimi's house with AC and peanuts and have a fashion show!
