I was going to go see the goats today. But the depression got to me. Feeling rotten. One of those days where it feels like everything’s going wrong- Oh well

Good goat times today. Forced myself to get out despite the depression. And despite the rain. It rained a lot today. And it so happens that my bus card was out for renewal. So I had to do the long walk there and back again in the cold rain. Oh well. Thankfully I was prepared and dressed warmly. And it was worth it to be with the goats again. It’s always worth it. Nice to sit in the goat house and listen to the rain. The perfect calm. Broken up by the fierce fighting when someone did something that offended the delicate balance of power, treats and cuddles. Most of the time seperated in two grooups. Mia and the adoptees in the goat house with me. The newbs in the shelter. Although Nuller wanted to be in the goat house a lot, braving the dangers of the giant border patrol Mia unit. He still remembers the shaking hoof trick. I think he’s got that down forever now. Now I just gotta teach Milo, Sky and Lily!
And the greens are starting to grow. The rain should help that as well.

Both my parents have got the double dose of vaccine now. I am relieved. I know it’s not a hundred percent guarantee, and lord knows they got other health issues. But it’s still a relief. I must admit, when all this started going downhill last year I was terrified and paranoidly assured that my parents would get it. Mine is a fatalistic mind. But are looking up in Denmark. Our numbers are good, restrictions are starting to get lifted. There aren’t many countries in the world I would have rather lived in during this pandemic. Everything’s always uncertain, but I’m happy with how we’ve handled it. So far so good.’

While we were rained in yesterday I decided to brush the goats. Mia really likes it. Milo was not happy. He was butting my hand away while I tried doing it. When I held out the brush for him he bleated at it and tried to eat it. Then he ran away. He’s a goofy boy. Sky was a little unsure at first and ran to the corner, but she seemed to enjoy it when I actually got going, as pictured.

Feeling a bit unwell. Gonna watch youtube videos and try not to move. Feels like I may have to zonk out and sleep for a day. Don’t wait, up?

A little update. I took a 2-3 hour nap in my comfy chair, and I’m feeling a bit better. I started feeling bad yesterday and still not completely well. Some headache and nausea and dizziness and tiredness. But considerably better after the sleep. Good enough to try to eat something. And it so happens that I picked up some tomatoes the other day and they are EXCELLENT. Best tomatoes I’ve had in years. I hope we’re back to having really good tomatoes.
And hopefully I won’t have to throw it all up.
Feeling pretty decent right now actually. I’ll go to bed early today and I’m sure I’ll be fine. Hope you’re all doing alright out there.

Further update: I’m feeling a lot better. Almost normal. Just a bit tired. Not sure what happened. Maybe my blood sugar crashed. Or spiked. Or went tapdancing with elephants. I don’t know. Maybe the tomatoes cured me. Here’s a picture of Mia, Milo and Sky in the rain house. I’ll be heading to bed soon and get a long surf on the dreamwaves. Hopefully all will be well in the morrow.

Read about some state in America wanting to bring back the firing squad for executions. Also read about them finding someone else’s dna on the murder weaon from someone executed four years ago.
If you’re pro firing squads don’t ever fuckign dare to pretend to be pro life. The death penalty by itself is bad enough, firing squad? Why don’t you just stone them to death and sell tickets. Disgusting.

Holly heck, these tomatoes are so good. I really really hope they’ll keep being this good all spring and summer. The last few years I have been disappointed in the maters I’ve been able to get. These are amazing.

Some people think goat eyes are freaky. The only time I find them slightly odd is when the goats are inside and their pupils get big and almost round. I prefer the horizontal bar!

Tricks Of The Treats

May 2nd, 2021

Today will be a good day. Happy Mio Monday everyone.

Good goat times today. I had a doctor’s checkup in the morning (ekg fine, results for blood and urine to come later). Debated with myself for ages whether I wanted to go to the goats afterwards. Doing TWO things in ONE Day is a lot for me, okay?! Well luckily I managed to convince myself to head on to the goats. It’s always worth it to see the goats. Bit of a cold day, but a lot of sunshine so that was quite good. I had some mushy maters with me, and I took Sky out of the pen to give her the chance to get some tomato time without worrying about the others. But she didn’t really like them much. Oh well! While I had her out of the pen a mother and a little girl came by. So they got some unexpected closeup time with the ‘goat kid’. Yeah, she’s pretty small. And it’s not polite to mention a lady’s age, so I let them believe she was a baby. Haha. Good times for all.

Guess what we did today! I taught Nuller to shake hoof. He did it really well too, better than Sassy. Now the big question is, is he going to retain the skill and keep doing it. He’s so focused on the treat, I’m not sure he’ll remember that he has to do something for it. He’ll probably go back to going straight for it and jump up on me if he doesn’t get it. But we’ll see. He did super good today.

Good goat times today. A bit on the chilly side, but a lot of sunshine made up for it. Especially love my time sitting on the pallets with Mia resting her head on me, snoring in the sun. So good.
I saw one of the barn cats, at least I assume it was one of them. It was heading away from the pen though and by the time I made it to the fence and meowed after it, it had one into the underbrush. Ah well.
Lots of visiting kids too. There were some laughing at goats pooping, but they didn’t sing hte poop anthem so I don’t think they were official poop troopers. Another group came to the fence while I was sitting on the bench. They called out “hey person in the goat pen can you tell the goats to come over to us” to which one of their adults said “I don’t think they’ll listen to him”. Oh ye of little faith. I went over to the fence and the goats followed me over and the humankids had some good time petting them. All in a day’s work.

Sweet, tired Mia. The kids loved her too. A couple of them asked her name and went “Mia’s my favourite!”. She’s so good with kids. Milo, on the other hand, was not their favourite. I heard one of them say that he headbutts them. Haha, yeah the bandit’s reputation is still in the gutter.

Good news, Nuller remembers the hoof shake! He’s great at it. We got a new act for the goat clown circus.

If you think that cnn and msnbc are fake news and that you’re getting the real truths from those new placse that you turned to when fox news no longer told you what you wanted to hear, this is a fun read.
“On behalf of Newsmax, we would like to apologize for any harm that our reporting … may have caused”.
It’s still pretty incredible how a corrupt regime told their followers “something’s wrong” and then used “a lot of people think something’s wrong” as a reason to try and circumvent the rule of law.
Forking nuts. Btw, as far as I’m aware, the American ambassador to Denmark never apologised for claiming that her vote wasn’t counted even though it was. And I’m sure there are still some 40-50% of American who think the election was stolen because.. the guy who got caught with his hands down his pants by forking Borat says it was.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg weiner.

Copenhagen, 1906.
It’s always funny how your brain kinda wants to think that the world actually looked like that, back then. It’s hard to imagine that the people who were actually there saw the world much like we see it now, fluidly and in colour with sound. It’s weird how easy it is for the brain to think ‘no, the world was black and white then. Look at the film, it was clearly black and white and silent’. Fascinating.

Quick question, is smelling chlorine a sign of a brain aneurysm? Or is it just a sign that my neighbours are getting a pool?
