"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

Wednesday Words of Wisdom

Well, gosh.  Here it is Wednesday again.  I thought it was just Wednesday yesterday.  Of course that would make today Thursday, so I guess it is a moot point.  Anyway, I have decided that the white Woolly Booger with the heart was an omen.  Yes.  After all, it is October.  Omens are running amok.

So, it is my belief that the heart on the Woolly Booger was his way of letting us know just how sorry he feels for us.  And that would be because - remember when I told you about the 37 mph wind and the downed trees and limbs?  We've had more wind and more trees, and more limbs.  I'm not really complaining since I can hardly move from being so full of leaves, but I have to say this.  Ella, you are a pig.  When you were born, someone said, 'Oh, what a nice goat.'  But they were wrong.  You are a pig.  Oink.  Oink.  When the succulent fallen tree limbs come over the fence, you feel you have to be first to get a taste.  Nothing and no one can stand in your way lest they be dashed beneath your plundering body.  I'm quite tired of it.  I am the middle goat.  I am entitled to at least a little respect, not to mention a good share of the 'booty'.  Arrrrrrrrh!  I'm gonna' get a patch to put over one eye and a parrot to ride around on my back.  Although all I can probably get is a crow, but that is okay.  I will be FEARSOME and you will not cross me!  Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrh!

At any rate, Ella-Oink or no, the limbs, once tossed into the goat pen, have all managed to quickly end up looking like the bones of a cow having had the misfortune to fall, only moments before, into a river full of Piranha  Still, the Fall/Winter season has just begun, and the next time more of the plunder shall be mine!   Oy, yes, matey!  And Wednesday's Words of Wisdom? "Life's pretty good, and why wouldn't it be? I'm a pirate, after all." - Johnny Depp.

Marigold, watch for falling limbs, trees and witches on brooms. You know it's going to be Halloween soon.
