LOL...you all are too funny. The fudge was tasty....could have been fudgier but I don't attribute that to the goat's milk.

Here are a few pics before the camera batteries died out.

I say y'all instead of y'ins, I like grits and moderately sweet tea (that's the best I can do, lol), I know to always cheer for Jr., chiggers and ticks don't freak me out anymore, my kids have been mutton bustin'. All of that should count for something.

This weekend DD and I stumbled upon an event that I think is point worthy. Spindale NC held their Dairy Goat Festival, Pagent and Parade on Saturday. We went out of curiosity but had a good time. We learned a bit about dairy goats and what it takes to raise and show them...which is apparently serious business in Spindale. Also, who knew that dairy goats will tolerate being dressed in costume and paraded about town?

Of course, we couldn't leave without getting some goat's milk fudge and a t-shirt (which is most hysterical!!).

OK, so boiled peanuts make me gag and I won't mow the lawn while wearing a tube top (no matter how hot it gets in August), but come on....a couple of points for attending the goat festival seems fair.
Tube Tops get a bad rap.
