And the Hits Just Keep on Comin'...

Thanks so much again to Tiffany and Heather over at The Secret is in the Sauce...I'll be getting back to all of you SITStas who left such lovely messages of support at My Place Yesterday. Hope you found something you loved over here, and that you all will be back again soon!

If ya wanna know more about the Goats on the Roof from yesterday's post, click here. Al Johnson, who calls himself "chief cook and bottle-washer," says there are 5-7 goats on the roof of his restaurant in Sister Bay, Wisconsin, from May through October. Al has names for the goats and everything! He says he put his first goat, Oscar, on the roof in 1973.

Thanks also to Amanda, who runs a blog that features Giveaways and lots of other Really Cool Stuff. She's hosting a Pop'rs Giveaway over at her place. Yes, Dear Friends, another Great Opportunity to win some Pop'rs, that Good-For-You and Fun seasoning that really encourages everyone to Eat Their Veggies! Amanda's Pop'rs Giveaway ends October 15, so get crackin!

Also, please check out Melissa B's interview with Hot Tub Lizzy over at The Scholastic Scribe. This is the third Tuesday that Melissa B. has hosted Lizzy, in a Presidential Forum of sorts. Melissa and Lizzy intend to continue this "dialogue," if that's what you wanna call it, until Election Day. Many of you already know that Lizzy, a Blogger Par Excellence, is running for Prez as a member of The Plaid Party. Funny Stuff!

Finally, can't get away without leaving you with another of Aunt Julie's Priceless Photos! As you may recall, Julie Eliz shot that Perfectly HighLARious Pic of Big Bear and the Alpaca for Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Fiesta Finish. Well, we've got yet another sweet Aunt Julie shot for ya today. This is Mark, one of the owners of the 10 Alpacas out in Southwestern Wisconsin, gettin' a little Critter Love down on the farm. Mark and his wife, Jan, are teachers who raise Alpacas on the side. Alpaca wool, apparently, makes really Soft and Comfy Sweaters. Gotta bundle up--the Wisconsin Winter is almost upon us!

So now I'm wondering if the llama we saw at the Dells in the petting zoo at the place where we went horseback riding was really an alpaca. But I don't think so. My four year old at the time VERY nearly mounted the thing while it was lying down--oh what a ride that would have been!

That's great that you got Amanda to do a giveaway for you! I love her idea about making cookies and putting the cinnamon sprinkles on top. Too bad I can't enter, US only. So many giveaways now a days are like that. It's just easier.
