Two More Travelers on the Oregon Trail

Moldy will be getting a little extra in her pay packet this week. She had two doelings at 3 o'clock. That's good, now she has someone to listen to all her complaints.

She is already telling them about the great utopia of Oregon where she used to live. The beautiful land of milk and honey, where candy grows on trees, and little white goats ride on satin cushions.

Speaking of little white goats I was expecting two more drab nondescript things but these are flashy, almost as colorful as me. In this case I wonder if my excellent name ideas - "Fungus" and "Mildew" - will be accepted.

Sometimes when the farmer says a suggestion is "under consideration" it doesn't necessarily mean what you think.

Oh well, once they are dry the drabness will probably set in.

Congratulations to Moldy! Sounds like she earned her pay packet this week! And, maybe a good bonus for producing two doelings!

Grace said...

Hooray, hooray, hooray.
Congratulations, let the spring time celebrations begin!

Claire said...

Hooray for Moldy!! And her kids!!

Do I detect a note of....maybe...cynicism in your post? Are you perhaps, jealous of Moldy? Without wanting to admit to it, I sense that you have some deeper issues that need resolution.

Congratulations to Moldy, and to her kids:
Welcome to the World!
Can't wait to see them -
Pictures! Pictures! We want pictures!
(I'll bet Auntie Millie will think of awesome names for the little darlings.)

Pictures please. I want to see what a flashy fungus looks like.

2 doelings to start the season! Excellent. Hopefully, it's a sign of more girls to come :)
