All of a sudden I’m feeling quite tired. Well, you should’ve seen me whip up that opening scene of my new book. Who knew I could write so fast?
I’m also feeling a little bit whimsical–and what better way to satisfy that than by watching some goats on trampolines? We know baby goats love to play, but some of these are full-grown and they’re still diggin’ it. I wish I could be out there with them. I mean, how hard can it be, to bounce around on a trampoline?
Baby goats never just walk anywhere, do they? Always running, jumping, and cavorting. I have always wanted to cavort, but never learned how.
As for the goat with the backyard trampoline–well, that’s a natural.
You’ve gotta love baby goats. Their motto is “Never walk when you can hop, skip, and jump!”
I have no idea what grown-up goats are like. Do they grow out of all their playfulness, becoming all serious and sober? Say it ain’t so.
For those of you for whom the goose video was too intense, here’s something much more quiescent. Note the kitten who wants to sleep in the hay, which is, inconveniently, the goats’ dinner. But nobody gets mad, everything’s peaceful and benign.
If this were a Freddy the Pig book, after the filming, they’d get together to start a barnyard newspaper or something.
