"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

Millie said...

That's beautiful! You have a radiant (or radioactive) smile! Blessed Samhain and Happy Halloween from all of us. :-)

Candy C. said...

HA!! You are WRONG!! That is BEAUTIFUL!! :)

DebH said...

Oh, now I got quite a chuckle out of that! You are too funny!! But, regardless, your photo is priceless. Smile and all!

Kelly said...

Happy Halloween! I love that poem. The pic of the lady.....yep it's beautiful too. Much Love.

Marigold said...

Dear Auntie,
Wait. It isn't scary? It's supposed to be scary! Oh, no.

Marigold said...

Dear Millie,
Probably radioactive. :) And look! It isn't totally white. Who knows how it will really end up. Happy Samhain to you from all of us too! Be sure to pass out the Peanuts to anyone wearing a mask and possessing a tail and horns. Don't do it, however, if they happen to be really red in color.

Marigold said...

Dear Candy,
Oh, shoot. Like I told Auntie, it is supposed to be scary. Now what am I going to do? I'll have to put that stupid green guy back on here. Heaven forbid!

Marigold said...

Dear Deb,
The Goatmother thanks you ... with all her radioactivity and lack of tresses. Good costume, eh? :)

Marigold said...

Dear Kelly,
Me too! Remember that old Lexus commercial where the lady with the fantastic voice recited that? LOVED that! :)

Happy Haroo-ween!!!!

Mrs. Micawber said...

That poem IS very effective.

And how stylish the Goatmother looks in her ultra-pixie 'do. It really shows off her beautiful eyes and lovely smile. In fact it looks so good, I think she should consider keeping it short and sassy!

You know, Marigold, when you warned us that today's post would be scary, I was hoping for a photo of you in costume. But I suppose you took the easy route and dressed up as a goat.

:)

Marigold said...

Dear Turbo,
Happy Haroo - ween to you, my friend! I hope you get lots of Peanuts ... er... well, maybe bacon, in your Trick or Treat sack!

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
Okay. That does it. Next year I'm dressing up as a GIANT PEANUT!!!

Pearl said...

Loved that. And pretty good looking, aren't you?!

Marigold said...

Dear Pearl,
Oh, surely you mean me and not the Goatmother? I mean, I do have such a svelte shape and beautiful ears. I'm just sayin' ... :)

J(glad to see your face!) said...

Oh goatmother, you look AMAZING!!! I never thought you would look great with short hair! Are you going to keep it short after it grows in more??? And, you have the most incredible eyes...I think shorter hair brings out the dark, mysterious blue. Now you made me cry.

Marigold said...

Dear J,
The Goatmother says, humbly, thank you. Now if only she had eyelashes! :)

Mimi Foxmorton said...

Ohhhh...how I love, love LOVE you!

You are beautiful!
(and a little spooky, too......)
;)

Queen Quattra said...

Awwe, you made me teary and for a queen, that doesn't happen very often! Love your smile and sparkly, blue eyes and yes, I agree..keep the short do...it's very becoming...sorry Marigold...I'm talkin to your Goatmother this time!! :)You can't scare me!!

Marigold said...

Dear MiMi,
Yeah, that Goatmother is kinda' spooky. But at least not as bad as that little Green Dude.

Marigold said...

Dear Queen Quattra,
Sheesh. Don't tell her all that stuff. She'll get too uppity and will refuse to give out the Peanuts. And don't get teary either, 'cuz, ya' know, that just makes the Peanuts soggy. :)

Snowcatcher said...

Not scary to me at all. I see light and joy coming out of those eyes, and I suspect there's a bit of peach fuzz atop that head. Just looking at this photo makes me very happy.

Marigold said...

Dear SnowCatcher,
It's not scary? Aw, shucks! :)

Queen Quattra said...

Oh my gosh...you're right!! Soggy peanuts?? Never!!

Marigold said...

Dear Queen Quattra,
Crisp and crunchy is so much better. But I do have to admit even soggy they are probably still okay. As long as they aren't out and out WET!:)

Buffybelle said...

Well, we goats are shaved of hair for the goat shows and are considered more attractive without hair so I don't see a problem.

Marigold said...

Dear BuffyBelle,
I know. What IS up with that anyway? Of course we look better with our hair. Whatever are those judges thinking anyway? Oy. Oh, well. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder and judges must not have very good eyes.

goatsandhounds said...

Goatmother is beautiful!!! I love the short hair, it really makes her eyes and smile "pop"!

Marigold said...

Dear Goats and Hounds,
The Goatmother says, 'Awwww, shucks. Thanks!' Eloquent isn't she? :)
