Not yet, Roger. I just wanna know if the tool got on the Brown Truck and is really missin'.

If it's not yet shipped, I'm not so worried. But if that's the case, yeah, you can call ScottyB.

Hate to hafta do that to a young fella like Jeremy, but a deal's a deal, non?

CX - as a matter of professional curiosity (and with some trepidation), I would like to know why exactly would you be guiding a goat anywhere?

Well, Adriana, the terrain out in southern New Mexico where these particular goats wanna go is very rugged, indeed, and we wouldn't want nothin' bad should happen to the goats, now would we? Them being visitors to our country and all. Possible political repercussions, eh?

With our current relations with Iran, can you just imagine the fallout if one of these Persian Ibex were to be injured or killed because they were found not to have been properly supervised in their travels about the Florida Mountains? Not worth taking a chance on, think I.

Are you sorry you axed?


I'm electing to ignore your rude implication there, Brad. None of the goats has been found, to date, to be blind.

I do believe Matt is speaking of Jeremy with the grinder and not CX with the goat.

But I dunno . . .

CX, you aren't tuning your snowboard with a goat (again), are you?

No, no, no snowboard to tune here.

Although, there was enough snow a couple places onna goat mountains earlier this month a fella might coulda done a little snowboarding. Board likely to need more'n a tune-up after, though. Snowboarder likely to need some repair, too.

Not being in Florida any more, I would not be able to tell if there are goats in them thar mountains - blind ones, snowboarding ones or ones playing tuned instruments, regardless.

I do know that we have marmots in our Canadian hills here, and that they don't need guiding. Seems they are locals after all.

I am glad you are such an upstanding citizen, guiding those little Iraqi goaties so they don't stub their little toes on the rocks and possibly causing nuclear incidents.

Could you make it a two-fer and count the owls while you guide the goats? Sounds like it could be terribly boring just making sure the goats have good footing.

They are not Iraqi goats, they's Iranian goats!

And they ain't in Florida, they're inna Florida (pronounced Flor ee' da) mountains in southern New Mexico. These ones racheer.

These here goats been here since 'bout 1972 as I recall, so I don't guess they qualify as residents just yet. Ain't never seen one to have papers with him, but the Border Patrol, whose agents spend a lot of time and money in the area, doesn't seem to care do they be here or not. Long as they don't look like they came from Mexico, they don't get bothered.

Besides, I ain't seen Border Patrol agent one who looked physically fit to go up and catch any.

And no, no two-fers. Alla goat guidin', 'least the legal goat guidin', is finished before the owl's breeding season begins. Yes, Adriana, they have seasons for that. And don't no owls (right kinda owls) live where the goats live. So, we do our goat guidin' and our owlin' separate.

Don't think I could keep up otherwise. Climbin' up and down the mountains all day guidin' and then climbin' up and down the mountains all night owlin' would be way too much for some of us senior guides, eh?

That makes all the difference then.

And no. cx, you'll never get old. Just more crabbier. The owls are lucky to have you

Grinder hoped on the truck yesterday and im sure she'll be real happy to be back in her home state where she might get some use. I used it once or twice when I go it but other then that she got burried and forgot about.

CX, yall should be reunited soon.

We done just reminded you not two weeks ago, Jeremy.

How old you say you was?




Naaa, not like them there, Dana, like this here.

Only lots bigger sometimes. And some of'em are in steep places.

Click on that link in my signature line and you can find more photos of more goats. All gonna be kilt ones, though. The one inna picher got hisownself kilt by a sharp stick. Fella inna picher with'im is guilty of the killin'. And he's actually a serial killer, which is pretty rare on those animals, 'specially when usin' sharp sticks.
