Still Here, Still Kickin' ...
Do you like this picture? It has nothing to do with anything. It is a Himalayan Impatiens (Impatiens glandulifera). It is part of the Garden-Gone-Wild gardening plan in place here due to the temporary injunction against Goatmother Gardening. Seems like it managed pretty well on its own, though.
So, like I said, it has nothing to do with anything. This is my 500th post. That has nothing to do with anything either. Who knew a goat could have so much to say? Well, whoever thought that obviously never met me. I suppose this ought to be a momentous occasion, but due to a lack of Peanuts I'm not feeling very momentous. Oh, not that we've run out of Peanuts, mind you. It is just that I haven't had enough of them. Come to think of it, I never have enough of them, so maybe I am living in a perpetual non-momentous state. Now there's something to think about.
Anyway, I'm sure you are all wondering about the Goatmother anyway. Well, the Goatmother made it through the last of the chemotherapy treatments. Now while she didn't have quite as awful a time as the last, cumulative effects have wrought their vengeance and there seems to be a bit more trouble coming out from under the spell. I suppose you could say the Goatmother isn't feeling very momentous either. We shall prevail, however, so never fear.
The next step? Radiation. We are not sure exactly when this will begin, only that it should commence some time in the next 3 or 4 weeks. We are fully expecting the Goatmother to begin glowing, but I think we'll have to draw the line if she starts resembling a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. ButterBean is bad enough without adding anything green and shell-like into the mix, thank you very much.
So, then, onward and upward! Stay tuned for the next exciting chapter in the ongoing saga against evil.
