My Hawaiian Goats!

Actually they aren't mine..they live on the property we rent on. It's so much fun to spend time w/ them. I've been going out in the morning when I can and just hang out w/ them for a half an hour or so. Feels better to start my day that way rather then at the computer.

Some of them are nanny's from what I'm told and some Hawaiian Mountain Goats I'm wondering if they mix species..cuz there is one daddy stud and lots of mommas w/ babies. I think we have a hodge podge little group here. I love them though..they are so much fun. The babies are a kick..esp when they try to rear up and butt eachothers heads.

And then there is MO-mo of the goats brought in by a vet who now owns them. He's so friendly and a bit cripple w/ a crooked leg that was eaten by a dog. He runs around on the hillside just like the rest. The other day I was kinda hop-running down the hillside and I guess he thought I was playing so he started rearing up (not at me) and prancing and boinging sideways along side of me. It was the funniest thing..and it felt really cool to be accepted that much into his world lol!

More Maui Jewelry Coming soon!

This Tuesday is 10 cent Tuesday for us sellers at RubyLane. It's only 10c to upload a new item for sale rather then the usual 30c ...5c for charter shops. I've got a number of new pieces I've started already adding an more still to add so I think I am going to use until then to make some more and then get as much up on Tuesday as I can. (Hopefully life doesn't call my attention to elsewhere that day) I believe I am a charter shop so 5c an item is pretty cool. I'll take whatever savings I can get in this economy!

"Violet Butterfly Bracelet" coming Tuesday to Jonara Blu Maui
