Wanted

.

As we were leaving our small town’s festival I saw a sign pointing to a local artist’s collection of folk art carvings.

.

.

The man and his art are well known in my town with one piece of this collection featured and displayed every year in our town hall.

.

.

Three of the pieces were bought by private parties before the town decided to acquire the collection and were graciously lent to us for this event. It was the first time the collection has ever been exhibited together. Except…

.

.

There’s one missing.

.

.

The widow of the artist doesn’t know who her late husband sold The Raven to, but there’s been an extensive search … with no luck.

.

.

You really have to see these in person to appreciate the craftsmanship.

.

.

And my poor pictures don’t do the beauty of the wood carving justice.

.

.

All the creatures depicted are native to our area. They are depicted with the joy of, and reverence for, nature.

So if you ever see that Raven? Please let me know.

The Great Goat Escape …. Update.

.

Sadly, the goat is still on the loose.

.

.

Updates are posted every few days on our town’s Facebook page.

.

.

It’s become a bit of a hoot.

.

.

Apparently this goat was given to the owners a few weeks ago and as soon as they opened the pen to transfer it to their yard… it ran off. They’ve tried putting out food, luring it with other goats and even set up a warm shelter near where it’s been spotted… but nothing works. It runs from everyone who tries to catch it.

.

.

In 2020, this is what passes for hard news in my town.

Ya gotta love it.

The great goat escape.

.

Livestock run amok in my town…. as witnessed by a flurry of recent Facebook postings.

.

.

Poor goat, he’s just lonesome.

.

.

Goat tracking is a wonderful thing.

.

.

Uh oh, now the law is involved.

.

.

Apparently this isn’t a first for local law enforcement.

.

.

Pie rewards. Ya gotta love it.

.

.

Benny Hill music would be the perfect accompaniment to guard rail hopping goats.

.

.

When your community is requesting goats in heat? You know things are about to get real.

.

.

Goat Busters. Where do I sign up?

.

.

Goats in tutus? Yes, please.

.

.

If the goat shows up at our backyard buffet, I shall report back.
