(Astrophysicists are, of course, innately adorable. Baby goats only make them more so.)

So, as I said, we got us some cute.

    Ahhhhh! My heart is melting! I can’t believe they seem smaller than the cats. I mean, intrisically I know this is possible, but STILL!

    Oh, that brings back memories. My Dad raised goats, for milk, when I was a young. I fell in love with the kids. He begged me not to name them. He said if I named them he would not have the heart to sell them. So, of course I named them. I played with them all summer long. My Dad, being the softy he is couldn’t sell them. Chip, Dale and Cindy (triplets)stayed with him for years.

    I’m convinced there is nothing on earth – not kittens, not puppies, not chickies or duckies – as cute as baby goats. My friend Helen has an inordinate number of kids this year and the cuteness factor is so off the scale that it hurts to go visit. It’s hardly believeable that my voice can go up that high when I see them. Squeeeee! Indeed!

    You goat-pusher, you. My cruel husband keeps saying we can’t get goats. Not even when I showed him the goat and cat picture, which he admitted was great.

    Your boys are adorable. Your husband is handsome. Even your housemate is pretty cute. And then you add BABY GOATS.
