    wake up. go back to sleep. a little. then really. then wake back up for real.

    get up to go to bathroom. billy goat hears the floor boards move from outside and puts up a noise. the geese hear that on the other side of the house and chime in.

    i think....why did i get these animals. i hate animals. then, i have a cup of coffee. i still hate them, but now there a little cute around their edges.

    not quite cute enough to go outside yet though. fool around with stuff. do some work.

    then, after about an hour, oh, i like these animals. they ARE cute. maybe it's just my meds kicking in.

    bring the billygoat an offering of the banana peel leftover from breakfast. he is pleased. bring the billy goat smelling dog inside for rough and tumble and breakfast.

    billygoat complains loudly that his companion is lost and gone forever. send dog back out. feed cat.

    eat some more breakfast or start lunch. do some work. geese are honking. is there anything to de honkify geese?

    when they stop and then start up again five minutes later, hey, it's kind of a nice sound, really. and they do notify me when anyone's around. and they have kept the goats safe. okay. feeding time.

    outside to do goats, geese and duck plus chickens at once. hay. straw. feed. water. special treats often include oatmeal and celery.

    sit out there for a while and decide i do love them all afterall.

    then, go back to work.

    repeat next day.

    for sure.

    mine acted pretty decent today except for girl goat whose in heat. she was pretty sassy. she almost stepped on the ducks head and i told her, you would be first in line for the stewpot.

    of course, this after i missed work after her dog attack and totally changed my work schedule for the next what, month and a half. two months? so i could be around for her just in case. so, not sure i would realllllllllly put her in the stewpot.

    your billy sounds really cute. i think it's hysterical you bit his nose. i bit my dog once on the neck, a stray who was being taken care of now and just didnt' get it to stop biting and pawing. it worked pretty well, actually.

    my reaction......pfpffffffffty. ugh. dog in my mouth.

    didn't taste like chicken.
