People are so silly. They tell their kids that Santa brings them gifts. Then they go out on black friday and "fight" those crowds (sometimes acutally fist fight, pepper spray each other and snatch and grab those same toys that Santa is suppose to bring for free. People are not very smart.
Who got that Santa story started, anyway. (I suspect the merchants selling the toys.) And every year the Santa story gets embellished. Now the parents in the know have to buy an elf to sit in different places until just before Christmas, when it disappears to go back to the North Pole to tell Santa if the child has been naughty or nice. And if you don't have a chimney, you must buy this special key to hang on the door so Santa can come in. When he leaves he hangs the key on the Christmas tree. And don't forget the cookies and milk and some hay for the reindeer.
This old goat prefers the Christmas story that the Bible tells us about. The one that is TRUE!!

1. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
2. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3. Know ye that the LORD he is GOD; it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him and bless his name.
5. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
My SIL has had all her tests and there is no sign of cancer in her body. For this we praise our LORD.
Also my husband went back today for his six month check up at his cardiologist. He got a good report and was taken off one more of his medicines. GOD is so good!
I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!

You know how I've been so proud of how the goats stayed in the woods and pasture even though the fence has been down since the hurricane came through. Well, all that changed last weekend. We were inside and I happened to look out the window and saw the goats were in the back yard attacking the grapevine. Husband ran out and called for Missy (the dog) and she made short work of getting them back across the ditch and into the woods.
I think they got back into the yard on Saturday, and Husband says, "I've got to get the fence back up." He got busy doing something else and didn't get the fence up.
Then Sunday, when we got home from church, all the goats were laying around in the front yard. They were just taking it easy. As soon as we got out of the car, Husband yelled for Missy. She came running and barking and the goats went back into the woods. After lunch Husband went to the woods. He worked all around the left side of the house and got all the wire fence back up and turned on the electricity so they would feel a shock if they came out.Then he went to the right side to walk that fence line and make sure all the wire was up. I was on the telephone and noticed that the goats were in the front yard again. I went out and yelled for Missy and she paid me no mind and neither did the goats. My husband finally heard me and he and Missy came from the woods on the right and the goats ran back through the fence on the left. About dark, Husband came in and said all the fence was up and the electricity was working on both sides. So far as I know, the goats have not been out again.
*I usually let the goats do my political talking and here we are on election day and we had nothing to vote for.*

This has been a busy week so far. Sunday after church, we went to see SIL in the nursing home. Husband's brother and SIL went with us. We had a good visit and got home at dark.Monday, I took myself to the dentist for cleaning and re-scheduled the filling I missed in June.
Tuesday, I took mama to her heart doctor for a sonogram of her heart. We go back on the 15th for the results. She wanted to go to Walmart. We looked around in there for awhile. Neither of us bought anything.
Last night I found out that my Aunt Elsie has another great-grandchild. After I read her email I checked on facebook and saw that beautiful little girl. (I love babies !!)
Today I stayed home.
Tomorrow Husband goes to the dentist. After that he is going to New Bern to get more grass. I hope to take that ride with him.
Hope your week is good!
