"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Keepin' it real

Just in case you didn't get enough of my whining at the end of the horse show...
This is what I came in to find after I'd put the ponies to bed and needed to start dinner!
Scuze the pics, I think I was shaking as I grabbed the camera in disbelief.

The 2 legged kids had been responsible (ya, dumb to even think, I know) for walking Wilma n Bert while I did barn chores.

Good thing they had their blow-up "Super Striker" mallets that they won at the fair!
Take THAT Bert and get outta my house!!!!!

* Apparently the goats are even worse than my chickens bout finding an open door!
** Nobody ever asks me why I drink... ;-0

Does it make your exasperation any more bearable to know it brought somebody else a smile?

Still, I'd rather find a big ol' goat in my kitchen than a wee cockroach, any day of the week!

Now you are going to have to read those books to your kids....you will just love them also....

So funny!! I won't be sharing this with hubby though as I'm trying to convince him we need a goat or two!

Meg said...

Oh too funny! I'm so glad it was you and not me! My kids would be no help in getting those creatures out of the house, they freak when a cricket is on the ground, I can just imagine the chaos that would bring!
