Last night Mike and I went out for sushi (where we inadvertently ate squid tentacles which tasted remarkably like bacon) and afterward took a stroll up by Lake Pontchartrain. On the drive home down Williams Blvd (a pretty major street, six lanes with lots of businesses), we saw a dog making its way across the street. It wasn’t moving very fast.

This, in and of itself isn’t very unusual (to see a stray wandering around.) Because many people had to leave their pets in the city when they were evacuated and rescued, lots of dogs *ahem* “got together” and sired many, many puppies. Now those puppies are big dogs and you see them (all scrawny and stuff) wandering around town. We even hear packs of them in the field behind the church, which can be unnerving at times.

Anyways, back to my tale, I saw the dog, and shouted to Mike to put on the breaks. And… when he did, the dog came into the headlights, still slowly making its way across the street, and we could see that it wasn’t a dog at all but a goat. A little, four foot goat.

Some days I just say to myself, “Where am I?”

    I’ve totally had dried squid tentacle before! Chika brought a bad of them home from Japan once. She said kids eat them like potato chips over there. . .
