Wordless Wednesday: Kids in a Goat Cart

A few months* ago, Carol at iPentimento posted a Kids in a Goat Cart Challenge. You should click over and see the cute old photo which inspired the challenge. Unfortunately, I didn't have any pictures of kids being taken for a ride by a goat.

I have been known, however, to take liberties with a meme on occasion. Thus I bring you, instead of kids going for a ride in a goat cart, a goat going for a ride in the kids' cart.

A goat, three grandchildren, and a strange kid in yellow boots!

Okay, so not exactly wordless. But close.


*Readers, when I first wrote this post, it started out, "A week or so ago... ." For some inexplicable reason, it has been sitting in draft status since then. So, having found it, I'm playing the Better Late Than Never card, and bringing you a seasonally-incorrect spot of sunshine and greenery in what must be the coldest mid-December ever. Or so it seems to me!

Doesn't it? I think my daughter's kids had a pretty awesome childhood!

Thanks so much for the link to my blog post! I love the liberties you took to make your picture fit the bill(y goat). Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.

You're most welcome, Carol. Sorry I forgot to finish the post in timely fashion! Sheesh!
Happy holidays!
