I guess it's an age thang , member when ya wast jus a youngin ,....an ya whist u wast older cause ya coudnt do this an that an all th othr stuff tha ya thoght ya wanted ta do ? .....an mawh ya find yurself to be as old as ya thought ya needed ta be .....an ya still cant do th thangs , but fer difrent reasons ? One day, sted of jumpin outa th sack ya jus kinda crawls.....an ya notices tha a a knee aches , an th back is a bit stif an it aches as well , an wha yur lukin at ia nawt clesr ,...an th spectacles help ta clear it a lil ,.....an ya starts ta askin why ya said summa thm wishes !
I guess its an age thang.....an this Ol Goat ist ther , ..an wshin mebbee he wast nawt so far ther ! Sum nawt so nice thangs have happend along th way . Th werst by far was tha Missus Rupe hadta leave me . Our "Maker" called he home afta bein wih me fer jus short of 25 wonderful years . It will b 6 1/2 years next week tha she left....an tha aches worse thn all th othr aches tagethr , sum say tha tyme heals ths ache , but have nawt found tha ta be true !
'Cause a bein alone , but with th two dawgs , an th aches of th age this Goat hadta part with th log home tha th Missus an me bbuilt an movta closer ta th town inta a small place tha sur don feel like home . In December before Christmas , Mac th lil Beegle dawg left me afta 16 1/2 years . Me an th Setter , Niki , miss tha rascal ! Mac wast th subject of many a Tale in th past .
'Cause of th aches an th eyes , th walkin th woods an shootin th flintlocks hast become jus th memry ....did I wish fer tha ?? So , a caushun fer th younger ones , .....be a bit careful with yur whisin ......wishes can come true !!! At least Ol Goats kin still pull up a log an sits next ta th Fire with othr Ol Goats an th memrys ! Thanaks fefr tha !!
Well,you're welcome at this fire as long as I can squack just as loud as th' others.We appreciate the wisdom you've gained,even if it did come with pain.....
