My Wife Smells Like a Goat

And, for that matter, so do I, and it's all good.

Allow me to explain. Last week, we bought some soap made with goat's milk. Not just any goat, mind you, but our favorite blogging goat Pricilla, proud mother of the new kid on the block, Kevin.

We showered using the lemongrass massage bar key 70's porn music and it left the Crotchety Old Lady with smooth skin and a goat-like pleasant lemony fragrance.

We do enjoy supporting our fellow bloggers, and are big fans of the buy hand made movement, along with supporting independent entrepreneurs. On my blog, I have a widget for such a site, and really encourage everyone to visit places like etsydotcom for all the purchases that you can. Some individuals, like my friend Kate, sell hand made products (Kate makes and sells quilts) on their blogs.
I just got a beautiful bracelet for the Crotchety Old Lady for her birthday, which is in July. She got to the mail first, so it became an Easter gift.
Anyway, I bought it from Rose Works Jewelry and Mrs. is very pleased with it.
Please check out hand made and independent sellers first. It supports our community, and helps our country.

Besides, WalMart has enough money, and has done so much to destroy the fabric of America. And, no, the fabric of America is not what XXXL sweatsuits are made from.

Very good point!! I love etsy.

Gary said...

Goats are awesome. They have so many uses. I have no clue why the western world doesn't take more advantage of them.

They are lawn mowers, their milk makes excellent cheese, their pelts can be made into leather, they are relatively easy to take care of, and they are delicious!

They are by far the most overlooked animal, at least in the west.

I lurve handmade everything, but soap is an obsession, and Rosey Posey of Roseworks Jewelry is a good friend. She will be very pleased!


Unknown said...

How nice of you to support the marketing of your fellow bloggers. This is such a great community!

ReformingGeek said...

More things to check out! Thanks.

I forgot to include goat in my road kill stew.

Donnie said...

I really like some of the handmade items you can purchase from a blogger. Oh, and the fabric of America is made in China. On sale now at Wal*Mart.

Marie said...

Joe, you have hidden depths that never cease to amaze me! Do you have any single brothers?!? Or did they break the mold with you? :)

I discovered hand spun art yarn a few weeks ago on Etsy and I am in a buying and knitting frenzy! There is some breath taking stuff out there.

I will definitely check out the other sites you mention.

Unknown said...

Aw, aren't you a good fellow to promote online artisans! Very cool.

Da Old Man said...

@ Mary: I like it, too.

@ Gary: I like goats. And goat cheese is a favorite of mine.

@ Tulip's: I hope so. I really liked the bracelet, and the wife was happy and surprisd.

@ Dizz: It certainly is. I try to help when I can.

@ Reformiong: I don't think I'd eat goats. Too cute.

@ Don: Sad, but true.

@ Marie: Thankfully, I'm one of a kind. Happy shopping.

@ Jenn: I like to help others who have done right by me.

Sandee said...

Goat? You want to smell like a goat? Doesn't that happen if you live long enough anyway? Just saying. Bwahahahahahaha.

Have a terrific day you romantic you. :)

Jen said...

I couldn't agree more and I absolutely love Pricilla's soap. I'm biased of course because I am Kevin's official human aunt. I decided not too long ago that I would support my fellow bloggers in whatever way I could and I am glad to say I have been pleased with all their products. I've also made some great friends along the way.

This soap is sooo good.

Jen said...

Oh, I'm still in need of a coffee supplier.

Live, Love, Laugh, Write! said...

Thanks for the link to my shop! I'm glad the Mrs. likes the bracelet :)

brokenteepee said...

Thank you so much for posting my kid's photo. Although he is now going to be as vain as Abby. I am glad you and the Mrs. liked your soap.

As to eating goat I myself wouldn't eat goat but I know the publicist is getting ready to do something with Abby as her bruises have bruises. Abby is a problem goat.

The publicist made some good cheddar and colby cheese with our milk this year. She can't wait to make more.

Kate said...

Thanks for the shout-out! I was just enjoying a plate of goat cheese mixed with black olive tapanade and pesto. Love the goats!

Da Old Man said...

@ Sandee: Smelling like a goat would be an improvement some days for me.

@ The first thing Mrs said when she saw your "nephew" was that she wanted to get a goat. LOL

@ Rose: She is so pleased. Thank you again. And, it was such a bargain. But don't let her know that.

@ Pricilla: I've heard that about Abby. Is it time to Google some recipes?

@ Kate: That sounds wonderful. Happy to do the shout out. I've seen pictures and you have made some wonderful items.

The Hawg! said...

You just stay in trouble, don't you?

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

Nice! I usually don't enjoy smelling like a goat, but in this case, it may not be so bad...

Da Old Man said...

@ The Hawg: She has a very forgiving nature (fortunately)

@ Petra: It's really good.

Michelle said...


I am so there!!!

How are ya old man?

The Self-Deprechaun said...

Thanks for the sites recs, mrs. deprechaun (babyboo's) bday is coming up.

Da Old Man said...

@ Michelle: Doing well. How are you?

@ Self: You can do all your shopping online.


Lin said...

I just bought the exact same soap and LOVE it! It really is nice and lasts a long time. And that Kevin is such a doll!

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

That little Kevin is becoming a blog star! And you make a great point about buying handmade. Even if the maker is across the country physically, they feel like locals internetally. Hey, I made up a word....or did I?

shyne said...

One of the reasons I love Farmers Markets is because of the availability of handmade products.
I agree, supporting local, independent entrepreneurs is the way to go.

"And, no, the fabric of America is not what XXXL sweatsuits are made from."

LMAO @ that statement!!!!

CastoCreations said...

I am SO glad to hear that you support handmade. Etsy is awesome.

Have you also checked out 1000 Markets? It's a new handmade only site and a little more artisan focused. It's great too.

That goat pic is adorable!

Da Old Man said...

@ Lin: My nephew, my wife, and my sister all want to get a goat now.

@ Nanny Goats: If it wasn't a word, it should be.

@ Shyne: You caught that line.

@ Casto: I've heard of them, and will have to check them out.

brokenteepee said...

I wonder what it would cost to ship Abby to a Crotchedy Old Man.

Da Old Man said...

@ Pricilla: We'd take Kevin. Abby is kind of tough to handle

Alicia aka "Fashiona" said...

Ok Crotchety...your wife is a good sport. BTW, curried goat is great.

For example, instead of spending the day trying to harvest corn, kill chickens, make clothes, and repair his home, a man might realize that he could just repair homes, make clothes, and harvest corn. Between 1830 and 1900, over fifty armed insurrections occurred (Area Handbook). Then that manager retires, is transferred or gets promoted. Somehow I had the strength to control the car the three miles back to the house. Even so, America did not retaliate.
