She's loud, but the neighborhood wouldn't be the same without her...



This is La Nina, the little pygmy goat who resides just about 15 feet from my driveway. She's the neighborhood noise-maker...and we love her! Her owner is a dear friend of mine and we've been discussing the possibility of my family purchasing "El Nino" so that we can all enjoy "bebe chivas" soon!

Baby miniature goats would be pretty adorable.

Thankyou for stopping by my blog and saying hi!

Yea, a goat! Watch out or she may be come a scooter ramp : ) (or a least an obstacle) for the boys. I might ask if the dogs would mind, but I think they would get along with anything.
Good morning to you (ewe)!

Hi BoggyWoggy,

La Nina looks lovely and who minds a bit of noise when they are this cute?!

It is my understanding that billy goats don't smell all that nice. That's why people keep girl goats. That and the milk. She can get baby goats via stud service.

That's a wierd looking sheep.

Ya know, just as I was starting to forgive you for calling me a jerk, I read this in my comments section...

"You go, Carnivorous Hippy. That kid is really cool and he needs an award...from the National Institute of Non-Asshole Solutions to Simple Everyday Problems Organization, aka the NINASSEPO. I make daily contributions to this organization. It recognizes those in our society who are hell-bent on solving issues with sanity and peace. You son, aka "Thing 1" must have some really cool parents backing him. I take it back...his actions had nothing to do with his excellent schooling. They had everything to do with his great mom and dad, teaching him how to use a cell phone, avoid conflict, and talk sense into stark-raving mad people. You go!"

Again, I invite you to come within inches of death or serious injury, then have the perpetrator ignore you as you try to get their attention. I don't know your personality, but if you can keep your cool (as I did, without any violence) beyond what I did, you're a better person than I.

I would also guess that CH's son was smart enough to know learn to use a phone on his own. You seem to give credit where not due, and with such vigor. ie- "his actions had nothing to do with his excellent schooling. They had everything to do with his great mom and dad." Step back and read that... does that not sound ridiculous and overstated? EVERYTHING to do with his parents?

But I may be wrong. Next time you see him, congratulate his PARENTS over and over, and say what you said here... "Thank God your parents taught you to use a cell phone." I'm sure he'll really appreciate that.

Either way, for future reference, the comments that made me rethink what I had done were the rational ones... the ones that didn't immediately take sides and call names. Yours on the other hand, not so much.

I just love what you've written, CS. Can you not enjoy a little humor? CH is one of my very best friends...should've made that known...

This is weird with you two having a (heated) discussion about my parenting : )
Enough already… I’ve got to get to work teaching my daughter how to use a fork.
Crall, if I almost caused you death, but didn’t know it… I would have been completely freaked out had you tried to get me to pull over and talk with you. I wouldn’t have done it. After reading your blog for sometime, I take it that your personality is not diminutive and therefore could be seen as threatening. Unfortunately, having strong opinions requires a trick in the presentation….not always an easy task when one is passionate.
I’ll post this on both of your sites.
