Oh My!

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

It was dry both going to work and coming home. The forecasters say it is unseasonably cool. I think it is just right.

And . . .

It seems it was livestock day Downtown.

First there was the goat. I went outside on my morning break and there it was. It isn't everyday you see a goat Downtown. Truthfully, in the years I've worked Downtown I've never seen a goat Downtown. Later I found out a guy is walking from Seattle to New York with his goat. You can see a short video about it here.

At lunchtime I noticed this woman with a big dog crate. This, too, is an unusual site Downtown.

When I looked closer I saw there wasn't a dog inside the crate.

There was a pig! Later I found out the pig's name is Walter and he's a Barn Buddy animal ambassador from Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, a Division of the Humane Society of Missouri. Just exactly what he was doing Downtown I'm not sure, but I think it involved a TV appearance. You can read more about the Ranch by clicking here.

I really do like working Downtown.

  • 63F/17C and sort of cloudy for the ride to work.
  • 71F/22C and still mostly cloudy for the ride home, but then it cleared off nicely.


  1. Definitely not something you see everyday - goats and a pig in downtown. Wonder what is next?
