Call me crazy...
when the sun finally came back out again yesterday afternoon,
I had to just lie down on the snow covered ground and stare at the blue sky.
Now mind you, our afternoon temps are still in the 20's...
but I am in such need of sunshine, that I will brave frigid cold to bask in the rays!
I happened to be with the Nigerian goats at the time...
and they thought me quite odd.
Odd, that is, until I began dishing out chin scratches.
Then, they thought me quite wonderful,
and crowded around me.
"If only she had more than two hands..."
(I could imagine them saying.)
As you can see...
these goats can almost completely recycle and old Christmas tree.
This is about as close as Audrey ever gets to me.
She is untrusting by nature.
"Yeah" she sighs, "that's because every time I get close enough,
you try to trim my hooves or give me vaccinations, or worm me."
"What I can't figure out," she continued, "is why the rest of them are so
chummy with you!"
"Bribery." I replied. "The rest will do anything for a Ritz!"
"Chin scratches," said Ash, "are just as good as Ritz Crackers."
"Ooooh, yeah, a little to the right, ok?"
PS: Happy Happy Birthday, Amanda and Ryan!
