Some days have a natural theme song and yesterday it was definitely "Send In the Clowns." Oh, wait. That was me. Flappity whappity, what the heck?! The sole on one of my new (okay, almost new) shoes had come loose almost back to the heel. Ka-whap, ka-whap; all that was needed was the sound of a calliope in the background for my clown act.
Looking out while milking, I saw two deer walking on the driveway just outside the goat pen. The goats lifted their heads and the deer stopped. For a long minute, the does of two similar species stood and looked at each other as if looking in a mirror, and then the deer moved on.
When the deck was in afternoon shade, I took Bessie Anne out and began giving her a puppy cut with the clippers, shearing off a big pile of fur. She seems so much more comfortable. Bess needs a little more touch-up work before I'll take her close-up photo, but she's so darned cute.
Between my silly shoe and the animal acts, I'm not sure if I'm running a farm or a circus.
