I'd like to sing you a song, it goes a little bit like this...

THE STARS AT NIGHT!
ARE BIG AND BRIGHT!
::CLAP::CLAP::CLAP::CLAP::
DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS!

yes that's correct faithful reader, i'm at the ranch
it is impossibly hot and still here (and annoyingly)
the trees in the distance are swaying in a breeze
the tree i'm sitting under is calm
the only clue that there is life on this ranch
is the rattling of the cicadas
further up in the branches of this tree
that's not true, i can hear dogs barking at a kitten
that had the nerve to try and come inside
through THEIR doggie-door
they use it as an excuse
to chase the offender away
they really only like cats when they run
so they can chase them
what can i say, they are dogs
mom sold off all her cattle and goats
now the hillside pasture is going to weeds
really really fast
she had her friends bring over some goats
one billy and 5 nannies
oh, and Osama Bin Llama
he's a llama
he travels with the miniature herd
and keeps them safe from harm
so i thought large flightless birds were scary
the llama looks down on me and is easily
TWICE the weight of the emus
rut ruh
what do llamas want that only i can provide
ha
i end up spending 45 minutes standing in the blistering shade
hand feeding a llama horse pellets
llamas have tiny narrow mouths
and are very delicate as they remove
the feed from your cupped hand
and messy
Osama drops easily half of what he tries to eat
it's funny
now i have hand fed
a lion
a tiger
a bear
a giraffe
a camel
and
a llama
i should put this on my resume...
