"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

Uh oh! Did Somegoat wish for a giant peanut?

Marigold said...

Surely no goat would do that. But then again it is Christmas. :)

Mrs. Micawber said...

If it crashes, will it cover the Earth with Peanut butter?

Waaaait a second ... isn't this the year the world is supposed to end? Did the Aztecs (or Mayans or whoever they were) happen to mention peanuts in their prophecies?

(Does John Cusack know about this?)

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
I don't know, but what a way to go.

Terry said...

Dear Marigold,
How ever do you stay up on peanut news? Do you do a daily google search?

Marigold said...

Dear Terry,
As my friend, Mr. Monk, used to say ... it's a gift ... and a curse.

Snowcatcher said...

Marigold, that giant peanut is the Iowan angel's Christmas present to you. AND, yes, it is a Santa sack FULL of peanuts!!! ;)

Marigold said...

Dear SnowCatcher,
Woo Hoo! Woo Hoo! Woo Hoo!!!!! I KNEW I'd been good!

Candy C. said...

I sure hope a few of those peanuts fall out of the giant peanut Santa sack and land here for my goat girls!! :)

Marigold said...

Dear Candy,
Sure looks like there ought to be enough to go around to me. :)

Ginnie said...

That was close! Phew!

Marigold said...

Dear Ginnie,
I don't know. I was waiting for that Peanut Butter...or perhaps it is filled with little tiny Peanuts. One never knows.
