T Plus One

The tsunami didn't do anything and neither did Moldy. It wasn't a beautiful day, either, it was a soggy mess.

Now it has stopped raining though.

So what, it will probably start again soon.

We are sick of the rain and mud. Even Willen the fat Haflinger is sick of it, he wouldn't come up to the fence for a raisin bagel yesterday because he didn't want to walk through the mud. Instead he let Tommy take his bagel. The farmer's jaw dropped almost to the ground.

Tommy is a bagel hog, he would swim across Vaughn Bay for a bagel.

It is spring now, it doesn't matter what the calendar says. All the blossoms are blooming and the frogs are delirious with the their nighttime singing.

I don't know if anyone has bought the naming rights, I doubt it, but anyway I have suggested two names for Moldy's babies and they are "under consideration," whatever that means.

My suggestions are Fungus and Mildew, because these are mold names, and Moldy's name is Moldy.

Then they could be called Gus and Dewey, like the decimal. Nice.

That is if they ever show up.

Fungus and Mildew !!!
I love them!
Perfect names for Moldy's kids - esp if they're boys. Versatile and Mold-able...

Millie, you are the Naming Queen!

Very funny! I'm glad you all made it through the weather safely! Maybe Moldy has read the Goat's Code. You know the one ... where they wait until the Farmer is very busy doing something else or gone from the farm and then have their kids! She's just waiting for her perfect timing.

I like your suggestions. More along those lines, in the event yours are not accepted:
Neurospora crassa
Aspergillus nidulans
Well, I could go on and on, but you get the idea. You are a genius, Millie and I wish you were here to name our new babies. "Cutey," "Sweetie" and the like are getting a bit nauseating.

I like Yang's suggested names Pennie for Penicillium. Ry for Rhizopus or perhaps Pus (not as in the drainage pus but pus as in pussy. I will send my original ideas for names soon.
