"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

Small Town Advantage

We live in a small town.  Now some folks might think that living in a small town presents nothing but a lot of disadvantages.  I suppose it is true that you may not have as large a variety of wares to choose from.  And perhaps there aren't tons of entertaining things to do.  The stores may close early, and the town may more or less fold up for the night.  

Still there are advantages.  For example, you don't have to sit in traffic jams very often, and you don't usually have to fight crowds of people.  People are generally very friendly and most always ready to help.  Why even the businesses function on this premise.  Take for example the picture you see below.


Or what about this one?


Who knew the local Dairy Queen offered 'doggie cones' at the drive-thru for free?  The goatmother and the goatfather didn't.  The people working just looked in the car, saw the Mighty Quinn and Cabra sitting in the back, and offered!  'Would your dogs like a doggie cone?'  Just like that.  See, small towns DO offer some advantages.  I'm just wondering what those workers would do if they looked in the backseat and saw a certain black and white goat sitting there.   Do you think they'd give me a Peanut Buster Parfait to go?

I think they should give you a peanut buster parfait. If they give you any flack, tell them I said to!

I say try it! I dare you.

Okay, obviously, the DQ people did not read the previous post nor did they see the evil Cabra picture. Quinn should have given a peanut buster parfait by default and Cabra a Styrofoam container. Get with the program, people.

The most appropriate treat for a goat. I know what you mean about small towns. Aren't they great?

Any goat that stays in the backseat for the whole car trip deserves a large Peanut Buster Parfait!
