I Might Have Lied....


Ummm, so uh, yeah.....I might have lied........though not intentionally.....

After much soul searching and spiritually consulting the Beaver, learning the temperature in the barn was barely 20 this afternoon alone and seeing a lake effects snow storm blow through and talking to Farmer........well, uh....so yeah, Darla is going to stay put for the time being.

I know. I know. But she's happy and healthy and on this beautiful, regular schedule and really thriving compared to a week ago and in the grand scheme of things who really knows how goat time is calculated so what's a few more days, really, and who said that 1 day had to be only 24 hours anyway-how are they the boss of time?

So, yeah.....I'm a worrier.

And a wuss.

And I don't care.

Life's short.....love a goat who needs you while you can........


And besides, who really wants to go against the Beaver......?

ps. I'm like that really bad friend who borrows your best sweater and won't give it back.....

Squeeeee!!! So excited for little Darla that she gets to spend extra time getting lovies from her adoptive Mom. It will help her immensely in getting ahead in her growth and development, and it will help her learn to be a perfect Yule Goat. And it will make us all happy. What other reason do you need?! Love the good news!
p.s. Also love to see you consulting with the national symbol of my country....a proud and noble animal indeed....

Mixed emotions.
But warm and safe can hardly be a bad thing.
(for now)

Hey, isn't the National symbol a goat, Claire? Huh. Guess I was mistaken. Oh, well. Glad little Darla will be warm a little longer.

Certainly is a good thing! Just hope the farmer doesn't call the police on you for kidnapping.

Mimi Foxmorton said...

Millie- KID-napping! Maa! Maa! Maa! Maa!
Farmer just laughed.

Marigold- We need a goat as a National symbol!
They ruminate on thing so well! ;)

(News: I am vindicated! Thursday's forecast is "frigid 2 degrees) :)
