The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!


It was just the four of them after the war. Fortunately the goat was female and could contribute by supplying milk, and fortunately the humans were vegetarians and so saw no need to slaughter her (but she was always careful not to turn her back on them – you never knew).

The humans amused themselves by stripping down and rebuilding the old Toyota and teaching the goat English. Her accent and vocabulary weren’t too bad but the only examples of writing were on the gravestones – all those foolish book-burnings – so they didn’t bother with reading skills.

Could have been worse.

    How did they get here and where are they going? This has left me wanting more – sorry. I’m captivated by the idea of a talking goat.

  3. Wonderful!
    Just loved it.

  4. Wow! That was so surreal, I hardly know what to say about it except that I enjoyed to the utmost. fantastic fantastic tale. Good going!

  5. Adaptability of man-regardless of circumstance. I am glad a goat could make it too

    It is hard to tell with those crazy humans.

  7. Dear Patrick,

    First book-bannings, then burnings. How far are we? I’m fascinated that the goat could talk, regardless of her accent. Nice one.



    • Hi Rochelle,
      I’m told her Farsi is almost fluent. You can’t tell with goats nowadays. Thanks for visiting.
      Book burnings; flag burnings – hardly ways to resolve conflict.

    Her accent and vocabulary may have been okay, but I’ll bet her delivery left a bit to be desired.

    This sooo made me laugh. Personally I’d never turn my back on a goat either… Well done.

    It didn’t look so bad, until you mentioned the book-burnings! Chilling.

I'd love to read what you think ...
