|ONE MAN AND HIS GOAT! NATIONAL LIBRARY OF IRELAND VIA FLICKR COMMONS|
If you are of the opinion that we tend to repeat our Sepia Saturday prompts a little too much, you have to admit that this week for Sepia Saturday 379 (post your goats on or around the 5th August 2017 and link them to the list below) we have something a little different. It is time to look out your old family pictures which feature regimental goats - we all have one or two hidden away somewhere. If you haven't got any goaty images, well shame on you, you will have to improvise by finding a photograph of Great Uncle George with his goatee beard or your old nanny, or something similar.
And whilst you are chewing that problem over, you might want to look at what is awaiting you over the next couple of weeks.
A fun post from me this week with memories of the "Hieland Coos" we came across in the west of Scotland.
I’m in home territory.
I share my secret recipe for Yorkshire Goats Head Soup (substitute with tofu, should you prefer...)
No goats from me this time around, just a few of their grass-eating friends.
Playing in ancestry and trying to not let it "get my goat." That's a close as I come to the prompt. But when an aunt becomes a grandmother, through different sources, and they both are daughters of a martyr...it's a strain on the old grey matter.
In my mind I nailed it.
I think I've got the bearskin theme covered. No goats, but musical of course.
After this weekend I'll be on holiday for the rest of August, and return at the end of the month.
The connection is obvious - isn't it?
A bit late but I just remembered a previously unshared photo of me and my goats in the late 1970s or early 1980s.
