To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

The Happening

Sixty years ago a baby was born in a small town in Oklahoma.  Little did the unsuspecting world know what had been unleashed upon it.  Did I say sixty?  The big 6 - 0???  

Oy.

But it's okay.  There is hope.  I am living proof that Peanuts contain absolutely amazing age-defying properties.  They're even better than Oil of Oylay.  At any rate, do not fret, dear Goatmother.  "Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, But beautiful old people are works of art." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Dear Staples,
The Goatmother thanks you most sincerely! Is that wish from Albie and Helen too? :)

Marigold said...

Dear MiMi,
The old ... uh ... er ... the Goatmother thanks you. :) Arrrrrrr!!

staples said...

Yes, from Albie, Helen, and the rest of the farmyard - even Roger and his harem. There is now increased demand for peanuts here, since everyone read your post.

Marigold said...

Snowcatcher said...

Happy peanut birthday to you, happy peanut birthday to you! Happy peanut birthday dear Goatmother of jumping goats, happy peanut birthday to you!

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
Wait just a ding-dang minute! I'm okay with that first part, but let's not get carried away with that second part, okay? Oy.

Marigold said...

Dear DebH,
No kidding??!!!! Now how cool is that???? You know the Goatmother went her whole life up until 2004, when she moved here, and never met anyone with the same birthday. Since then, though, she has found a bunch of special people with the same day. Who knew? Happy, Happy Birthday to you and we will eat lots of Peanuts in your honor!

Marigold said...

Dear SnowCatcher,
The Goatmother thanks you so much for the wishes! Now then, I have to tell you. I can jump like those mountain sheep on your blog. I just keep it to myself because, well, I don't want to outshine anyone. The Goatmother tries to jump like that, but she isn't all that good at it. Still, I've seen her do some pretty amazing leaps on occassion trying to get us into the barn, so I wouldn't want to sell her short. :)

Yikes, I missed your Birthday! Happy Birthday wishes, belatedly.

60? Just 60? Hey, that hardly "olden" at all. :-) I'm 15 years beyond you. Not THAT is "Olden"! :-)

Gentle hugs,
"Auntie"

Marigold said...

Dear Faith,
The Goatmother thanks you most sincerely! Me? I want to know how the hay you pronounce that lot??? :)

Marigold said...

Dear Auntie,
The Goatmother says to tell you that you and she will just have to have the birthdays from now on, but conveniently forget which ones they are. :) Thank you for the wishes!!!!
