elizabeth (on the right) of the crazy pig story

I think this is the goat who is supplying us with milk! She had one kid and he only nurses off of one teat. So the goat keeper is milking off the extra (I know nothing about goats…). It is very yummy, sweet and not at all musky.

What do you all do with folks who read your posts (or archives) and then go on to talk about it with others? It’s like that telephone game, where facts (reports, statements, etc) are misunderstood, and it just seems like malicious gossip…

    Hey there — I am afraid I do not remember the crazy pig story, so my memory will need to be refreshed. And I don’t know what to say to your question – part of the reason I post is so you know I’ve read it! One of today’s adventures for me was being reminded how happy I am *not* to be a 9th grade girl anymore… hope to see you tomorrow!

    Um…. I don’t think I’ve had that unfortunate experience. :( Sorry that it sounds as if you have…

    I don’t remember the pig story either. And I haven’t had that unhappy experience of the telephone game/malicious gossip. Guess I’m just out of it :-)

    E was for Elizabeth!

    Hope that wasn’t your telephone/blog/gossip/story. That one could get pretty wild if gotten wrong. One would hope that anyone who was told about a juicy blog post would look it up themselves….

    not everyone is blog-savvy, I suppose. Nice picture. I’ve never had fresh goat milk, I’m surprised it’s mild.

    I guess I have never had that experience myself, but it does seem rather unkind and inconsiderate. I’m sorry it happened to you, but don’t think another thing about it. This stuff gets toxic if you let it. As for the picture? I LOVE it.

    That’s some terrific pig!

    As for the nasty gossip thing, it hasn’t happened to me (not to my knowledge anyway), but I agree that you should not worry about it.

    pooh on them! a big raspberry boo.

    love the photo. My grandfather told me that goat’s milk is the closest to human milk – and it, not cow’s milk, was given to babies whose mothers died or who couldn’t nurse. I like the goat’s milk cheeses I’ve had, milder flavored than sheep’s milk cheeses. Both grandfathers had small-crop farms with a few animals and worked in PA steel mills. I picked up the occasional bit of info like this, but much less than I’d have liked. Odd that he’s come up in my thoughts again today from your blog; last week I was knitting with others and someone started talking about Tang, so we started comparing respective Grandpa’s house special foods (only at his house, never at home): Tang, real butter, jiffy pop popcorn. We liked the last two, Tang not so much.

    I don’t know whether I’m more curious about the malicious gossip or the pig. I love a good pig story and have a couple of my own…
