"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

Reasons To Be Cheerful

Hallooo!  Guess what?  It is Thursday and that means Reasons To Be Cheerful day!  It also happens to be Thanksgiving here, so that is a reason to be doubly cheerful, don't you think?  Anyway, be sure to go over to Planet Penny, here, and check out why others are cheerful this week.

Marigold's Reasons To Be Cheerful:

The neighbor-wiener! (Look, Higgins!  A paramour!)

Living in a place of such beauty!

I am very thankful the stick people do NOT like me. (We will not even discuss the mud.)

And last, but certainly not least, I am just SO thankful and happy that I am faster than Boo!
Happy Thanksgiving!  May your week be an ever so cheerful one!

Higgins would like me to pass on his phone number! And yes, we have mud just like that! Thanks for joining in and passing on a smile xxx

So many things to be thankful for. Your mud can stay away! I'm tired of mud and have DEFINITE plans for rocks in the driveway come spring (mud season). Snow doesnt stick! The beauty of the mountains is defintiely something to be thanksful for. Hope you had a multitude of peanuts. Much Love.

Wait a minute: Isn't the mud encrusted pup the same pup who was all spiffy not so long ago? What happened to the purple ear feathers? Doesn't anything last! How can anyone be cheerful when this kind of debauchery exists? Someone or some pup knew what they were doing...oh horror of horrors! Marigold, for everyone's sake you might want to put Cabra in a portable bubble. Long live purple ear feathers.

May I come visit just to gaze at your mountains? I miss them.

What a lovely neighbour-wiener. A happy Thanksgiving to you and the Goat-Family.

Wow, what fantastic views! Our mountains are mere hillocks in comparison!

Our sheep dog always seems to have half a tree stuck in his tail.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh my, Marigold. "A place of such beauty" is an understatement. What an incredible view.
