There were several other events going on today; there was a craft show, a flower/plant sale, food, and a Civil War encampment. I thought that a little goatie girl would be a perfectly fine addition to the hoo-ha, so I bundled her into the S-10, and away we went.
Fauni and a Friend
Miss Fauni Dell was a debutante. Everyone loved her, from the moment we arrived. Students were happy to hold her, and she climbed on several of them. One little boy said he just LOVED goats (I know how he feels!). Several adults shared stories, and spent time stroking her. Between grass sampling sessions and snuzzles, Miss Fauni Dell sat calmly in my lap and chewed her little baby cud happily, ever the lady. We even found a woman who had a little herd who came from Fauni's parents' herd! Small world! Cousins!
The local digital press was there. If we become overnight sensations, I'll update; but if not, all I can say is that today, I "let my freak flag fly" so to speak. And it made me so happy.

I'm not a fancy dresser; I don't use makeup, or wear heels, or color my hair. I don't care if you do...I just don't understand why people do it, so I don't. My colleagues do. I'm an island. I'm OK with that.
I let the guilt go today, and dressed my way, and brought my goat. I feel whole. Good day. I'll sleep soundly tonight.
