In which Madeline is leaving for an Adventure and goats are dumb
Madeline and Monkey Jack Paisley Baileyschild are leaving this week for a big adventure:
|Madeline and MJPBc|
teaching at a public high school in south Texas!
We are going to miss her like crazy.
|Cowboy Jim and his biggest horsegirl|
Before she could leave the Swampland, she had to take one last-time-for-a-long-time ride on Ross.
|Ross looks pretty good for an "old" horse, doesn't he?|
Then they came over to Haiku Farm for dinner and presents. MJPBc had to choose one toy to take to Texas. It was a difficult decision
|"I can choose boff?"|
Just so you know, People of Texas, that weird new noise is the sound of Squeaky Frog. No need to be alarmed.
|She loves the Squeaky Frog|
MJPBc has a vivid imagination.
|Somehow, the orchard became a vast savanna|
She stalked the elusive-but-hapless warthog for many patient minutes...
|Sun beating down on the parched plain|
the warthog remained clueless throughout the game.
|There is no truce among fierce animals, not even at the waterhole.|
Some folks might say that Luna is dumb, but they wouldn't say that if they met Lupin Goat Gruff. Here's his latest adventure:
|Dumber than your average goat...and that's sayin' somethin'.|
He stuck his head through the field fence wire to nibble grass on the other side, and got his head stuck. Please note that less than 6 feet from the goat is a gate into the pasture, and the gate is standing wide open.
Luna is grateful that God made goats. Goats make Luna look clever by comparison.
Me, I just take pictures and laugh a lot before I get the goat un-stuck again. It took two people to un-stick him. Dumb goat. I wonder if they have smarter goats in Texas?
I hope not.
