"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!

Remember the remarkable lady at Eden Hills who is responsible for the fantastic 'Butt the Hay Out Of Cancer' buttons, and her equally remarkable mother, responsible for that exquisite likeness of myself ?  As if that weren't enough, Teresa has now made it possible to get T-shirts with the logo!  (And remember, part of the proceeds will go to Cancer Research!)  How wonderful is that?!  Over in the side bar, you will now find a link to her fabulous store on Zazzle.com, and, by the way, she has some other really nice products including some of the wonderful photos she takes.  (Okay.  End of shameless promotion.)  If you click on the 'Marigold and the Goatmother' T-shirt link, it will show you a variety of styles and prices.  One size definitely does not fit all. :)  Thank you, Teresa, yet again.  I am, however,  beginning to wonder if the Goatmother is EVER going to stop crying.  Oh, well, I'll just be sure to insinuate myself even MORE up front and center when she passes out the Peanuts.  After all,  I know how much she enjoys giving me Peanuts, and I do so want to present her with things she enjoys.  Aren't I the most thoughtful goat ever???

P.S. - By the way, Zazzle just happens to be having a 20% off Memorial Day sale going on today.  So if you are interested, now is the time!

Marigold! Now tell me why goatmother can't stop crying. Is that any way to battle cancer? Are you falling down on the goat job? What are you doing to cheer her up other than looking happy when she brings you peanuts? Just march right into her living room and sit down on her couch with her. Tell her that Wolfi's mom is right there with you guys (in spirit, of course).
Sorry to have to talk to you so harshly, Marigold, but you have to keep your goat chin up!

Marigold said...

Dear Zitrone,
Fear not! The Goatmother's crying is a good kind ... because she feels so loved and honored!!! And don't worry, I'll give her gentle butts when she needs them to keep her in line. Now you know I have her best interests at heart or I would never even consider jeopardizing my Peanut allotment. :)

Marigold, I just want you to know that before reading your blog I had no idea goats liked peanuts. All my goats in the past decades never had a peanut one. When I stumbled upon this blog and read about how much you love peanuts I went out and bought a small bag of them in the shell and tried them out on my 5 goats. They inhaled the peanuts like vaccum cleaners. Now I buy unsalted peanuts in the shell from the feed store in 50 pound bags. Whitey, Shadow, Blessing, Hallelujah, and GloryGlory asked me to thank you profusely for letting me know about this essential treat. THANK YOU!THANK YOU!THANK YOU!

Dear Ozarks Goat Girl,
Smile...always glad to do my part for the betterment of the Goathood.

What a gal that Teresa is! :)
I will have to check out the T-shirts and I will also have to try peanuts for my goatie girls!
P.S. Loved the angel you sent Teresa the other day!

Marigold said...

Dear Candy,
Wasn't that angel just AWESOME?! Nothing like a little confirmation I always say. :) And, by the way, I am so glad to be enlightening your goatie girls as to the pleasures of the Peanut. Zen. They are Zen... Ommmmmm.....

That Teresa is one amazing lady. I am so glad she has my former mini goatie girls on her farm. Marigold - your long-lost relative (my former mini-Nubian) Coffee is due any day now at Teresa's. Keep your ears up! She looks quite a bit like you, but without the white parts. Hugs to you and the goatmother. xo

Marigold said...

Dear Claire,
Coffee, huh? Hmmm...I'll be watching. Any mini-Nubian giving birth has to be THE EVENT of the year! Hugs back. Wait a minute. I can't hug...butts back. There, that's better.
