Does This Make Me Look Fat?


I had to laugh...........The other day I ordered up another 50 bales of hay and Bill, my hay farmer had delivered. Usually we're out doing something when they deliver and this time was no different. We were actually going to Chicago bringing Zoe to the airport to head back to University when Bill and his helpers delivered our hay. When I got home, I found a message on the answering machine and it went like this.......
" Ahhh, Callie and Steve, this is Bill. I didn't bring you the 50/50 mix. It's more like a 60/40 or 70/30........Ahhhh, you might want to cut back a little on your goats. I see they waste alot and I think they're a little fat. I probably shouldn't be tellin' ya that, cuz it could be counter productive to my business, but, yeah....they're pretty fat."
OMG! I laughed so hard......Now Bill, is one of those serious farmers, the kind that you can raise a little chuckle from every now and then, but generally real serious.......Oh we laughed. I realize it's all truth. Herman looks like a beer barrel propped up on sticks and the two pygmies are fairly round.....I'm still laughing.........And yes they've just been wormed.

That made me laugh. I can hear that and picture Bill without ever having met him. There's lots of those types around here.

The goats are adorable and even if they have put on a little 'winter weight', after all its only to keep warm until the spring right?

Callie said...

Yeah.......just a little winter weight.....hehehe....I'm still chuckling over Bill's message

That definitely made my laugh. I don't know if I'd have the nerve to leave a message like that on an answering machine. LOL

I love it! Those darn goats are as happy as can be I'm guessing! (until you start cutting back that is!!)
