"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

Wednesday Words of Wisdom

Always be on time.  Always.  Okay.  Maybe you can't always be on time.  Sometimes things, like eating hay,  for example, get in the way.  Or Peanuts.  Peanuts always get in the way of many things.  Always.  Okay, well, always try to be on time.
"Old Time, in whose banks we deposit our notes
Is a miser who always wants guineas for groats;
He keeps all his customers still in arrears
By lending them minutes and charging them years."
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Our goats would like to add that farmers should always be on time (especially when it involves peanuts or hay), but goats need only be on time when it is convenient...

Dear Staples,
This is absolutely RIGHT ON, Sistah!

Hmm. They used "groats" but didn't rhyme with goats.......?

I am remiss on my blogging comments as this dumb-stupid blogspot rejects most all of my comments....even when trying to comment on my own page! Arrrgh!

Much love from me & Darla!
