Summer is blazing right along, which of course means it’s time for the goats.
I don’t know if it happens where you live, but out here trailers full of goats are periodically brought in to clear the dry brush from the hills and roadsides. This week there were hundreds of them munching their way along a nearby drainage canal and the surrounding incline. Two days of steady eating and the area is bare and no longer a fire risk. That’s a good thing, since even though the 4th of July is well past, enterprising individuals continue setting off celebratory incendiary devices.
I’m not sure why I get a kick out of seeing the goats in action, but I’m not the only one. There were several cars pulled over yesterday as their owners took pictures, as well as a couple of families attempting to get an up close look. I wish I could have seen how they loaded the goats up when they were done though. How many trailers does it take to transport a couple of hundred (very full) goats? Inquiring minds want to know.
Since I’m not likely to get an answer to the goat/trailer question any time soon, I better find something to distract my attention. I think I’ll try a little Random Word Improv.
Care to join me?
Whether you’re fascinated by goats, enjoying a vacation, writing up a storm, or just trying to make it to the end of another work-week, a few minutes of Random Word Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page. So pull up a chair, put on your thinking cap, and let’s get writing.
Today’s random words are mostly random, so the theme is up to you. There will be bonus points for including a goat though.

Okay. Are you ready? Let’s sprint!
