Is it bad when you forget you Goat's name?

Today Chili got a new friend, err, I'd introduce him to you but I forgot his name. Instead I'll show you a picture.










Why I have a goat that I can't remember his name is kinda a long story. Hubby says we should put up a sign that says, Unwanted farm animals, we're your suckers. I'm still trying to convince him that the goat is just visiting, but he's not falling for that.  Hey when we were first married that's how he suckered me into a Mastiff. That horse sized mutt was only staying for the weekend while his owners went out of town. Hubby forgot to mention that they moved out of the state that weekend! Paybacks fun☻
Anyhoo, back to the goat. I really wanted some goats, had a chance of getting 6 goats and hubby and son were big naysayers. We don't have goatproof fencing, son says, so out went that idea. Then son says "So and So if I could remember his name I'd know my goats name because the goat is named after him needs to get rid of his goat can we keep him?" "What about the fences?" I ask him. Oh I'll fix up the fences, he can stay in the barn pen til I get them done. I think I replied something like sure, but if your father asks he's just visiting for the weekend, but don't hold me to that. It was very hot and I was working in the garden at the time, maybe I had heatstroke? Hubby doesn't believe the weekend bit, and doesn't think the barn pen will hold him in. And I have a goat who I can't remember his name and he also seems very skinny to me, so since I know nothing about goats, I'll now have a vet's bill soon to. But he is kinda cute, and I saw Chili giving him a sniff  kiss so I guess he's a keeper.

A Lovely Summer Evening

About 15 miles down this road

Past the Big Chair

Is the Starlite Drive In Theater
(Not our Drive In's Sign, It disappeared years ago)

A big summer attraction for my family for the past 18 years. Last year after the owner passed away it closed. We were so afraid it would never be reopened again, then my husband and I drove by it last weekend and found it again reopened,
Last night my DD, DGS, and I went to the drive in and saw


By the time the screen went from this
to this...

DGS looked like this

and his Mommy and I were well into our 1st bag of popcorn ♥

The Ultimate Food Shelf Life Guide

I love this Website! My Hubby was often dumping things when it hit their expiration date, will I was countering that they were still good. Now I have proof! According to information from the USDA, CDC, and other agencies, unopened or opened, Milk is good  for 1 week after the sell by date. After eggs are purchased, they may be refrigerated for 3 to 5 weeks - the "sell-by" date on the package, if one exists, will usually expire during that storage period, but the eggs will remain safe to use. Egg Salad — Homemade Or Store-prepared will keep 3 to 5 days in the Refrigerator. That open bottle of prepared Horseradish will keep 3 - 4 months if it's kept continuously refrigerated. An opened bottle of ketchup should stay at peak quality for about 6 months in the fridge and mustard for at least a year. And both will remain safe to consume for much longer than that, as long as they've been continuously refrigerated.

Keep it or Toss it, you just type in the name of your Food or Beverage, Store Bought or Home Made,  and it will tell you how long it's good for. Click Here to Check Out Their Website
