Goat Wears Tutu, Stops Traffic

Oct

Maia, on display in front of Books-a-Million in a busy shopping center in Charleston.

To say she attracted attention decked out in pink harness and tutu with necklaces and headband with streamers would be an understatement. She literally stopped traffic as cars drove by and came to a halt to gawk, not to mention the foot traffic interest in front of the store.

Adults loved her just as much as little children, and she was perfectly behaved. Thank you to forum moderator Pete who was there to man the “goat station” outside the store!

Morgan came, and even signed books with me. All the photos in this post were taken by Jerry Waters, and he took some truly beautiful ones of my beautiful girl. (With boyfriend Justin in tow.)

And Jerry proves once again what a great friend he is by being seen with a goat in a tutu:

Thank you to those of you who came out! It was great to see you!

    How fun. Wish I could have been there. The book is great, I finished it way too fast but that’s okay I will reread. :yes: Your daughter is beautiful, of course, just like her Mom. Congratulations again on a great book.

    Jerry is an awesome friend and photographer, Maia is a precious girl, and Morgan is a beautiful young woman. Her mom is a pretty fantastic lady, too. Happy fall day! :snoopy:

    Goat in a tutu: probably a more common sight in someplace like Austin, TX. Love the hair streamers.

    WOW! Morgan has grown into such a beautiful young woman – you are a lucky Mom Suzanne! :heart:

    And Maia is just so cute. What a sweetie. Wish I could have been there! Thanks for posting the great pics (and thanks to Jerry for taking them).

    :happyflower: LOVE the costume! I’m quite jealous, as my goats would have nibbled it to bits in a matter of minutes-esp. the streamers!

    Pink tutu was a perfect costume choice!

    Just showed the pictures of Maia to my 3 yr old grandson who said “She looks just like a princess”!

    What a perfect costume for Maia, and what a star! I wish I could have been there. But it’s a little bit too far to drive for a day. Besides, I had to work. Maybe some other time.

    I am so jealous, I would have loved to have come to your signing, but it would be at least a 5-6 hour drive one way, and my sense of direction is not good, it would probably take me 10-12 hours—-one way! It was nice that everyone had a good time. Thank you for the photos.

    What a fun day you must have had. Mail looks pretty relaxed. I am thinking that she must have Clover coaching her from above. I’m very happy for you and all that you have accomplished.

    My apologies for being so late in replying to this, internet was out for a bit and life got in the way. I am trying to catch up now.
    Maia is absolutely stunning in her pink tutu and headband with streamers. I am so happy she behaved herself outside at the book signing. I wish you were coming to Philadelphia, because I would love to meet you and Maia of course.

    Morgan is BEAUTIFUL! And I loved the Cousin Itt photo. Oh to have beautiful thick hair like that….ahhhhh you are so lucky (even if you don’t think you are)

    Thank you for sharing your life with us. :moo:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
