Goats Are Great!~
Back in the day, when my daddy was just casting glances and winking at my mom, he had an older car for transportation to and from school. He couldn't help but notice not many of the school girls looked his way as he passed by in his plain car. Occasionally, he'd drive it to the next town to visit with his sweetie, my mom. They would hold hands while sitting close in the front seat as they drove to the local car-hop to share a root beer float and other menu items.
Before long, daddy got a new car, and it was no ordinary car...it was a muscle car! A 1966 GTO! His ego was as big as the engine sounded! He declined many pleas from the school girls for a ride in his car claiming that if his plain car was not good enough for them, then they also did not deserve to ride in his hot rod. I'm sure he 'got their goat'! However, as you can imagine, he honored every request by his sweetie to go for a drive...sitting close...holding hands...dreaming and planning a beautiful future together...and they did live happily ever after~
This 1970 GTO was a pleasure to cut for a friend of mine as a surprise Christmas gift for her hubby. They have been married since shortly after high school, and after all these years, they are still completely in love! Perhaps they will take the 'great goat' for a drive soon...sitting close...holding hands...dreaming and planning for the years to come...all the while living happily into the ever after~
