The great goat escape and other random nonsense.

.

Most of the time the Facebook ‘memory’ feature annoys me, but last week it flashed back to this day 8 years ago and I had to laugh.

.

.

Because 8 years ago that day our farming neighbor’s goats broke free and headed straight to our house. Have you ever tried to herd goats? As our neighbor will tell you…

.

.

It’s not a one man job. We chased them around our property for quite a while and got nowhere, but with reinforcements we eventually managed to shoo them back home.

In other news, I saw this and had to share.

.

.

Now that’s what I call mother’s revenge.

.

.

Scrabble. Even with letters like that I reigned supreme and won the game.

.

.

We have a dying shrub and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out why. We planted it 18 years ago and have never had an issue.

.

.

Then I looked underneath it one day and saw the giant woodchuck burrow. Mystery solved.

😡

.

.

I do.

I really do…

.

Another classic!

.

You’ll be sorry you missed this one.

.

.

So bad it was good.

.

.

Mad scientists at work.

.

.

They were attempting to shrink some shrews, but something went wrong.

.

.

Terribly wrong.

.

.

Which is why this fellow bellied up to the bar.

.

.

The shrew’s poisonous saliva killed this guy.

.

.

So our hero shot it.

.

.

But look!

.

.

Another one is chewing through the wall.

.

.

Yeah, sure. The couch will stop it.

.

.

That fellow is now behind the bar and I don’t blame him. Drink up boyo, they’re coming.

.

.

An escape plan is hatched with welded together oil drums.

.

.

Our heroine looks out but doesn’t like what she sees.

.

.

( The giant shrews? Skinny dogs with glued on tails and bizarre fur.)

Low budget cinema at it’s best.

.

.

Only the hero, heroine and mad doctor manage to duck walk the drums to the water’s edge.

.

.

Where they swim for the boat…

.

.

And prattle on about over population of a species that had absolutely nothing to do with the plot.

The shrews?

They’re left behind on the island to eat each other until none are left.

There’s a moral there somewhere….
