Kid Stuff

The Young Authors ceremony in which I took part Monday was part of a school book fair and fun fair, which included face painting and a petting zoo. There were rabbits and a miniature collie and these little beauties. I had to snap a picture for my mother, who loves goats. I promised the human kids I wouldn’t put their pictures on the interwebs but, when I asked the baby goats if being on line made them nervous, they said, “Bah!” So here is their picture. Aren’t they coot?

Naturally, I’ve been singing Mairzy Doats ever since. If you don’t know why, read this Wiki.

WRITING PROMPT: Have a character encounter a barnyard animal in an unexpected place. Make your character responsible for the animal’s care, long-term or short-term.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
