We do? I like talking to the blog people. Sometimes they talk back to me. What are we going to talk about?
Today, we are going to talk about the very BIG exciting news.
What? I thought we weren't allowed to talk about that until February 18th! You said...!
I know, I know I said. But, something happened, and I had to talk about it sooner than I expected to. I had to tell all the people at my work, and that was why we couldn't talk about it before. It was a BIG secret. Now, the people at my work know about it, so we can talk about it. Isn't that exciting?
Well, maybe. Sort of. I think it's a bit scary. I don't think I want to talk about it. Maybe if we don't talk about it, then it won't happen, and everything will just stay the same.
No, that's not going to happen. If you don't want to talk about it, then I will just tell the blog people about it by myself. Is that what you want me to do?
Do you want to tell them, Lucky Nickel?
Sigh. OK. I just...I think I need to practice. Wait....wait....why aren't you taking any pictures?
Well, because today the news is more important than the pictures. We don't want to distract the blog people with pretty pictures, because we want them to pay attention to the news, and if you don't tell them in the next few seconds, I shall have to do it myself!!
Maaaa! Maa--aaa---aa! (deep goat breath) OK. Here is the news everybody. We are....we...(more deep goat breaths)....OK.....let me start over. Soon, we are...that is my lady and I, are....well, actually, it's more than that, because it's my lady and I, and the 2 fluffy frogs, and....
Wait...what? Frogs? What are you talking about?
Those two brown fluffy ribbet things, they're frogs.
Oh! No, no, no....Lucky Nickel, those are RABBITS! Not frogs!
Well, Coffee told me...
Don't listen to Coffee, she's half Nubian. And we all know what they say about Nubian goats. Could you please continue properly with the announcement now?
OK. Maaa. Maa-aa---aaaa. I'm just clearing my throat. Maaaa-aaa-aaaa. Right. Well, so my lady, and I, and the two fluffy rabbits, and the barn cat (Esmeralda) and Kenzie the lamb....is that everybody...?
Yes, that's everybody, keep going....
So everybody I just said...we are...um....moving!
I'm not sure that they heard you, Lucky Nickel. You said that very softly.
WE ARE MOVING! Maaa-aaa-aaaaaaaaa!
Are you going to tell them where we are moving to?
Um....oh dear....I've forgotten...wait...wait...let me think.....maple. No....not maple, something like that...ummm...OH! We are moving to Can of Duck!
Can of duck?
Yes! Right? Why are you looking at me like that?
Lucky Nickel, it is not Can of duck. It's Canada.
Well, that's what I said. Kind of. I was close. They knew what I meant!
OK, so that is the big news. We are moving home to Canada. Well, it's my home. You were not born there so it's not your home, yet, but it will be soon. I have been here in Iowa for nearly 9 years now! That is a long time, isn't it!
Yes, it is....so...why do we have to go anywhere else?
Well, are you going to tell them why we are moving there, and what we are going to do?
I....well....I think I'm tired now. This is a bit stressful for me. I think I need a rest. Can we tell them more in the next blog post?
Well, alright then. I guess we can do that. But we can't make them wait too long.
No, we'll do it on the weekend. I just, well, it makes me nervous, maaaa!
It's going to be fine, Lucky Nickel, it's going to be simply wonderful. You'll see!
