Fence Smench

Today will be a good day. We all want it, so let’s have it.

Good goat times today. A lovely, sunny morning. Although cold enough to nip my skin. But as the day went on and the sun did its thing it became warmer and really, I hope fall will have more days like this.
Suits the goats better too, of course. Although the ground is still pretty wet. It’s cute watching Mio do her best to avoid any wet patches, be it mud or grass. Sometimes it’s like there’s a forcefield preventing her from going forward. Of course she also has a tractor beam that pulls me in. She knows the Treatbag will come to her.
There was a problem with the fences in the goat pen. Mainly that they were falling apart. We’ve had some rough weather lately. I wonder if the wind has been hard enough to bring some of the fencing down? Or if it was … DUN DUN DUUUN. The horses. I can tell for sure that the horses have been in the goat pen. Because there are piles of dung. Andt they ain’t goat pellet sized if you know what I mean. I did my best to strenghten up the broken fences. And the horses spent most of the day trying to break them back down again. I’m pretty sure it’s only a matter of time until we don’t have a horse pasture and a goat pen, but just one big … goat and horse pasture pen. Hopefully we’ll get all new fences at some point. I heard Alice talking to someone and they were talking about digging up all the mud at the front entrance and getting sand there or something like that. So they’ll be doing some construction and maintennance. I’m sure the fences must be on the list.

Look who dropped by again! Foxy Mulderson! Oh he’s so so pretty. I was happy to see him again. But I hope he’s ok. He just seems too fancy to be a wild cat. Maybe he’s like Mousy, has a home to go and sleep and get fed and then wandering the countryside during the day. I was going to try to get close to him, but then one of the horses started banging the fence down again and caught my attention. When I turned back to Foxy he was gone. *X-Files theme*

A look at the fence. The top is how I found it when I got there this morning. The bottom is after I tried fixing it up a little. Including moving the bench over there. The horses tipped it over a couple of times while reaching their heads over and trying to get through.

This is your formal invitation to my one man show “Ballet, But Why?” featuring an all star cast of one man, which is me. But rest assured that most of my personalities have been invited and there’s a very good chance that several of them will show up. The show will be held wherever the closest place I can get a darn pizza is. Don’t forget to bring your voucher, or someone to vouch for you. Also vouch is a funny word. It’s like ouch but with a V. But why?
Also, I’m going to bed. If you feel like someone is watching over your shoulder it may be my dreambody is paying you a visit. Please have pizza ready.

Good goat times today. Started out grey, but I braved it out in a t-shirt. Later on we got some sun and it was quite pleasant. Things afoot in the goat pen, though. When I got there Black Beauty was grazing in goatspace. Haha. The other horses were in their pasture, eating hay. But I guess Black Beauty wanted the grass. Because she was in the way and because the grass was wet I couldn’t get Mia and Mio to come to the fence to greet me. They were inside the barn, standing in the doorway. Mia was bleating at me, but didn’t come running. A38 was chilling in the shelter. Mellowbelly.
Turns out a section of the fence was completely down. Gone. A motorway from the horse pasture to the goat pen. I gave Black Beauty some cucumber and led her out in the horse pasture. Then I moved the bench over to cover the passageway. Along with some other stuff. It all looks quite messy, but it actually held out the horses today. Not sure for how long, though.
That wasn’t all the excitement today. There were construction people doing things with loud machines. One of their loud machines came and dropped several rocks in the goat pen. The goats first reaction was… to hightail it out in the horse pasture and safe distance. I guess it’s natural, no one like when rocks suddenly fall from the sky into your home. The workers kept working in other places. Not sure what all they’re doing. Maybe they’re the ones who are going to dig up the mud and put sand there. I heard Finbarr talk to one of them, I think about the fence. So maybe they’ll fix that too. Fingers crossed.
Looking at the rocks I thought “Eh, no way our plump, gravitationally challenged old goats will want to climb them”. But with the lure of a peanut I got Mia to come over to them and jump up on them. And later on she went over there by herself a couple of times and got up on them. Turns out it’s a pretty good outlook post. And it gets you a little bit closer to the tree branches above. She was casting longing looks to them above. Hoping uncle Treatbag would come over and help. And of course he did. When Mio saw that she joined us. She didn’t get all the way up on the rocks, but halfway there. Her front legs up on one of them. Not bad, when you know how chickenly she can be with new and unfamiliar things. So that was pretty fun. Nice when new things happen. And we’ll see what else the workers will end up doing. Hooves cross for a jacuzzi and a mini bar.

Scribbled on the wall in the men’s bathroom you say? Well that’s… Look, we all have a past and I’d appreciate it if you never bring this up again and burn the photos. Now you just all drink your tea and look at this Men In Black prop that I bought on ebay and assume works like it does in the movie.

Ages Of Mud

September 17th, 2017

Today will be a good day. Whatever it takes.

Good goat times today. Grey and cold, though. I miss summer already. It’s gone from around 20C/70F to around 15C/60F. That’s just enough to start making me feel uncomfortable with my bad circulation. At least it didn’t rain too much today. We even got a couple (literally) of minutes of sunshine. But yeah. It’ll be like 7-8 months before I’ll be running with Mia in the pasture again. I wish we lived somewhere warmer. Just walking there today, I went pretty early so it was almost dark. Cold, dark, windy. Ugh. It affects my mood a lot. Did I mention I miss summer?
Anyway, back to the good parts. The goat parts. I was there first so I gave everyone their breakfast. A38 was snarfing all her goatpills down, I didn’t even need to add raisins on top to get her to eat them. So that was good. And she got some other goodies too. When I’m the one letting them out we have to go through the main door. Which is now leading into a mudslide. So you can imagine Mia and Mio weren’t to keen on going out that way. Poor babies. Once we were out they just stood there looking at the mud and looking at me like “What are we even supposed to do with this?”. They’re a lot more subdued when it’s wet and muddy. A38 spent a lot of time sitting in the shelter while I sat with the big girls around her rocks and the crossbeam there. Good sweet cuddling time.

I was writing the word thing out of my head but I accidentally spent a couple of hours geeking over Twin Peaks with the Katt and now here we are. Also, the newest episode of Ricky & Murtaugh is one of my favourites yet. Currently reading: Men Without Women by Haruki Murakami, one of my favourite writers and my second favourite Murakami. I have read almost all the Murakamis that are out as audiobooks, so now I’m just slowing down to make the last ones last forever. Maybe I should do like Desmond on Lost and save one Murakami book to be the last book I’ll ever read. I should probably make it a short one, just in case I get a fatal disease and the doctor tells me I have 3 days left to live. New favourite band: Alt J. Or at least I’m really digging the discography at the moment. Has anyone read through all this and know them and have an opinion on them? PS My world is still swaying like a willow in the wind on the bank of a great river. Maybe this is what hamsters feel like when humans keep prodding their cages to make them move. I am not a hamster, I will not be moved. Hmm, I guess I should have written the word thing instead of this thing.

So, I didn’t comment on the anniversary of 9/11. I didn’t really have anything to add to what everyone else was posting, and I’m pretty sure no one who was alive and of a certain age when it happened will ever forget.But anyway. Because of the geeking out over Twin Peaks last night I found myself scrolling back in the timeline of the alt.tv.twin-peaks newsgroup. The archives go way waay back. And it’s fascinating to look back on what people were saying long ago about Peaks. Speculating about the future, about things that are now explained. Or things that no longer make any sense in that context. And as I found myself scrolling futher down, further back in time, I saw the years counting down. And when I got back to 2001 it dawned on me that I was getting close to that date. Almost dreading what I’d see. It’s one of those milestones in history, one of the defining points on the timeline.No real point to all of this. Just struck me how when you look back there are things that you cannot unsee. Even if the towers fall, you can’t see past their legacy.

Guys, if you hear any nasty rumours about me and the parrot don’t believe it. It never happened, I don’t even have a hammer and as far as I’m concerned it’s a waste of time to go looking for the pirate’s treasure.

Good goat times today. I almost didn’t make it out. When the alarm went off this morning I went “nope” and rolled back into dreamland. But a little later I did manage to get myself going. I wasn’t feeling great, but I know the goats are always the best way to feel better. Bit of a cold day when I got outside. Did I mention I miss summer? Hanging out with the goats and horses was just what I needed. Such a happy spot. Later on we got a little rain. And then the sun came out and for a little while it felt almost like summer again. And then just as I was about to leave it started raining. Hard. So I was ‘forced’ to stay a while longer. Sittingi n the shelter with Mia and Mio. Listening to the rain dance on the tarp on the roof. It’s a really nice place to be in the rain. With two snuggly goats in close quarters. Watching them watch the rain, in between cuddles and treats. When in doubt always go with goats.

I’d just like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has posted about the new IT movie on Facebook. Because last night I dreamt about A KILLER CLOWN CHASING ME AND MY FRIENDS. %/&8&(#.
Haha. It’s a good thing I don’t mind nightmares. I haven’t seen the new IT yet, but I think the clown in my dreams was more like the old Tim Curry version. The funny thing is that I woke up because I kicked something off my nightstand. I guess I was fighting the clown and did a karate kick in my dream and then I did in my bed too. Hi-yah.
