2015-07-30 walking a goat  Cr

Here is a sight I’d not yet seen:  a man walking a goat on a rope.  This was in town, in the lot behind a row of stores.

Still in the hircine department:  a kid that was interested in me during my morning walk.

Flora-wise – this is Peruvian corn I had no idea that Austin was growing.

I found out about it because Junia brought some damaged ears to Austin.   Wild horses got into his crop.   At least some ears are still good for seed.

More from Junia – this rare skink he was so happy to find.

Finally, a word about my precious mother-in-law, who at age 88 and after five and a half years here, took her last breath less than 24 hours ago.

We had fun, and She will be missed.

  1. A prayer for Austin’s mom, from Chile, and I know the world seems different once she goes on. With you all in spiritual support ,

  2. I’m so sorry about the loss of your mother-in-law. It is always hard to loose a loved one. I enjoyed seeing more goat pictures and the tiny lizard. Hope you are well.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. It’s good that Austin was able to spend time with his mother in her last years. Your family seems to have been good at arranging reunions across the ocean.
