My category ‘Pictures & Stories’ are posts with me writing a fictional, creative short story about a picture.


Rumen –

Mom, are you sure about this?

A course baby, I would not put you in harm’s way.

But mom, I do not see my friends doing this.

Baby trust me, they will be so jealous of you.

I am not wanting my friends to be jealous of me, mom!

Baby, if your friends are true friends, trust me they will understand.

I do not understand why you want me to do this mom.

It is for your best interest baby.

Mom, why do you call me baby, I am old enough to be a billy.

You will always be my baby.

Okay mom, but do I really have to do this?

Yes, baby, I mean billy you do, as you just indicated you are old enough.

And then it was heard, the loudest most disturbing burp that could come from a goat.

  1. That made me almost burp with the air I swallowed laughing! Of course little billy will always be his mummy’s baby and the way you paint that little boy impatiently correcting every notion his mother has on what is right is SO true to life (with girls too by the way) …. that they are goats makes it all the sweeter. I loved this Terry and I LOVE that picture! 🐐
