Somebody Has To

Someone pointed out that if Crumpet is the most famous goat in the world, where does that leave me?

It is a good question.

Anyway Crumpet did not do anything famous yesterday.

Crayola has never been famous or even very well known but yesterday she spent the day acting adorable I am not sure why. She and Jinxy took turns standing by the gate so their backs could be scratched and making adorable sleepy eyes. I am not sure why but they were both putting on a big show of adorability. Where does that leave me, if I am not the most famous or the most adorable goat in the world? I am not in a Doritos commercial either, and I should have been.

I guess I can't worry about that. Last night the coyotes were singing in desperate harmony and they sounded closer than ever and I know the farmer is not a good shot but I guess I can't worry about that either.

It has not rained for a long time here mostly because it has been too cold but this morning the rain started back, cold and sleety and looking fairly interminable. Sometimes it looks like it is only interested in raining for a few minutes, but sometimes it looks fairly interminable and that is what it is doing now and I know the roof in the cottage leaks and as far as the cabana the only news would be if it stopped leaking since it is a sieve.

But the only thing I know about roofs is how to stand on them so what am I going to do.

Sometimes it is just best to get into a zen state and accept the things you cannot change.

Screw that, I am going to do something. About everything. Somebody has to.

YES!!! Yes, you're absolutely right. Something must be done. Accepting things gracefully is for species weaker than our elegant selves. Like dogs. Or maybe Nubians.

I myself am working on taking down the fence separating me from "Sarabi's" baby. Who exactly does she think she is, hogging the only baby in the barn? I believe we all know I am the Queen here. This will not be accepted. I. Am. Taking. Down. The. Fence.

And I fully support you in your Not Accepting as well. We shall overcome. Stay calm and carry on.

It's your fence, take it down. Take it down to Chinatown. That's right. It's probably your baby, too.

Umm-hmm...I see...
but these are big words little Millie. Just exactly what do you intend to DO? Acting adorable like Crayola and Jinxy would be a nice start.

By the way, Crumpet doesn't have to DO anything to be famous. She already is. She just is, that's all.

No one seems to be the least bit concerned about the fact that "some
thing is about to be done!" WHAT??

Also, when the Goatfarmer is encouraging the breakdown of private property rights AND baby theft...shouldn't someone be concerned here?

Has the world gone mad? Good Grief. Just because someone is "Queen" doesn't give them the right to just run amok! Right?

I am blaming a lot on that Dorito commercial. Caper took off the carabiner that keeps him from unlatching the stall door. He hid the carabiner in the shavings. He thinks that's deserving of Doritos (although he's never had any and he's a fussy eater and would probably hate them, but still thinks that he should be offered them.) Anyway, maybe Crumpet would get bigger if she ate Doritos. You never know. And then she wouldn't be famous.
