I love it...but you know, now that you've used the word "goat," you'll be getting visits from my friends in Dubai.

Funny, it doesn't look like a dog?


However, I have to agree with Moi - stunning. Absolutely stunning.

Now stop reading comments and go rest. And have a fabulous weekend.

Stage left.........enter Dracula, carrrying a doggy bag....................

I don't know what a "buddy flight" is by the way...but, given where I had been, of all the possible commenters to come by my cosy little sarcophagus, you were just the one that I most wanted.

So thanks for that.

I too am sorry that I didn't get to meet you when in your part of the world, but unsolicited approaches can be awkward and intrusive, so I left it at that. Had we bumped into each other in One MM Sq, then that would have ben amusing but I now understand that you were indisposed.

And as for this post..........I still think you can't really want this relentless stream of praise about what you do and how you do it.
You must find it tiresome?

I sense a lonely dog, but not one needing the superficial repetitive simplicity of a clap on the back.

So, I will continue to act the stern master.

The photo is OK.
Could have been lit a bit better.
Try it again.
When it is really good, I may attach praise.

For some reason, I don't think you'd like Amsterdam, though.

It put me in Barcelona. I've never been to Spain, but I kinda like the music. They say the ladies are insane there. And they sure know how to use it.

If that's a Shaman's place setting, then call me "Sha-Na-Shaman"! I can't even fit a small salad on my table!

Heh-Paris, but not really. It would do. Notice that in the "if you couldn't live in Europe which American City would you choose, no SOUTHERN city named. No SOUTHWESTERN City named. Skews the whole exercise.

Interesting table setting. More than one goat head around, I see.

Hey Artfulsub, yeah-SPAIN!! I done said somehwar in these parts that I'se gonna retreat to Navarra some day, and gosh, the SHE-pup wants to go ter Pamplona ter show them bulls a little solidarity (bein' a dawg an all)

Looky She Puppy, here is a clap or two on yore back, a high five, some sugar sweet praise and a "Wow, you got talent!" A repetitive stream of praise...an' all that. As fer "lonely"--HOWWWWLLing hilarious. Regards to E&B, S, T, A, V, Tt, and the gang.

How's yore neck and how's Mr. She doin' wif your neck thang?

Well hello there, my dearest puppy. Or, as Jack would say, "doggiewoofwoof." :) I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and ate turkey, not goat! (Though I do have some great recipes for goat if you are interested...)
