Never a dull moment...







It was all rather "Make Way for Ducklings" this weekend at K & K, as we seem to be inundated with dozens of baby ducks and chicks, peeping all over the place, and running as fast as their little legs will carry them to keep up with their mothers.
In the continuing saga of Mickey the Goat-Who-Refuses-to-Correctly-Species-Identify, he did spend some quality time this weekend dozing with the lambs, while still blatantly turning his back on his fellow goats. When the novelty of four legged friends wore off, he escaped and recommenced following us all around, bleating sadly until either, a) being picked up and carried somewhere, or b) being given snacks. (And while I am sure I will live to regret this, he has developed a palate for grapes now, and prefers to eat them straight off the vine, while sitting in your lap. But who doesn't? I am firmly drawing the line at peeling them for him, though. It's tough love!)
Somewhere in all of this, there's a new children's book...maybe a hybrid of "Make Way for Ducklings", "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" and "Everybody Poops"....
