    Good Morning, fellow readers!

    Well, I certainly had a feeling that ram would be a (if you’ll pardon the pun) pain on Alley’s backside.

    It was foreshadowing — one of the basics of good storytelling. If it weren’t there, some people would be complaining that the goat just came out of nowhere.

    Well …this does not look good. He needs
    to climb down to the ledge where the little
    plant is at. Not sure about the logistics..
    I.e. exactly how close is this ledge, is
    it safe..(but then, none of this is…)weight
    bearing, etc..will uprooting the plant from
    the ledge cause it to slip (is
    it stable, etc..)

    Meanwhile back at the ranch. this is just to reach the plant. The goat is another story; Alley does not know
    he is there.

    Looks Like Billy Goat Gruff is preparing to help Alley cross the bridge about how to get down off that ledge sooner than Alley expected.

    A lesson here: never butt into the business of other eras.

    Goats growl?

    Kasper… right on, I too have never heard a billy OR a ram (as some called it) growl… lots of other threatening sounds do emanate but both the goat and sheep males depend more on action than warnings… in my rural experience.

    Nah, The surprise will come next month when the goat charges, misses Oop, and goes over the cliff.

    If a goat is introduced in Act 1, it will butt someone (or eat a tin can) by Act 3.

    From yesterday, re whether or not the animal in question can be called a “ram”:

    @JPuzzleWhiz and @LoboGrande
    It depends what dictionary you look in. One of mine that I use the most (Webster’s Third New International Dictionary) says, “a male sheep … a male goat … the male of any of numerous small antelopes.”

    That goat seems to be on the same visual plane as AO … which means … that is a VERY, VERY large goat !!!

    Don’t worry. It will probably shrink tomorrow.
