    Laughter is excellent medicine. I had a tough day yesterday; hard work, and internal frustration. I was helping a friend at the very end of my day with her goats while she was out of town.

    She had a boarding milker, and I got her on the stand and set the milk bucket below her, as usual. It already had more than a gallon of milk in it from the prior goats.

    I take my seat behind her and start milking, and all went well up until she suddenly grew a wild hair under her tail and thrashed. Foot in the bucket and KICK!

    I was -covered- in a gallon of warm goat milk and foam.

    After a long frustrating day, this would have been the end of a good many people. Me… I looked down at myself, looked over at my hubby, and we both just started laughing.

    C’est la vie. Don’t cry over spilt milk. Try laughing about it. :) Certainly made my day a lot better.

      So true, the ability to laugh at things like this makes life better! No use getting upset about it since it doesn’t change anything.

      Mr Chiots and I always have bad luck when we travel, but we always have some great stories to share at parties because of it. Never a dull moment around here!
