1. A group of goats is called a tribe.
Call me a member of the tribe.
2. Angora goats make mohair. (Confusingly, rabbits make angora wool.)
Kid mohair is silkier than you can imagine.
Especially on the hoof.
3. Lisa Shell at Kai Ranch makes beautiful beautiful (did I mention beautiful?) dyed mohair and weavings and yarns and dyed locks. When she's home at her dying/weaving studio on the ranch, the mohair awaits outings to places like Estes Park or Maryland S&W. But let's say you're visiting to take photos, and you sleep on the futon in the studio.....do you get it? essentially, I slept in a yarn store. sigh.
4. A sixteen year old son,
when removed from the rest of his species and placed in a new ecosystem, can be great company
5. Austin is a very cool place.
Good food, friendly people.
Live blues music at the airport. And, it's warm in the winter.
