I was driving along a little country lane when I saw him. I just couldn't resist stopping to say hello.

I wouldn't go up to him & tickle his nose!

I think you mean llama. The nose is a bit large for 1 of those.

Not many people know this - the double l is pronounced Y so it's a yama; from the Spanish, who came upon them in their New World conquests.
I'm trying to spread this message around the English-speaking world.

This is an Aberdeen Angus Bull, which is a nice Scottish Breed.
Tasty too.


This is a Llama, which is a Peruvian Pack animal. No mutants here??

So did I. I live 60 miles from Llano, Texas, which is on the edge of the Llanos Esticados - the staked plains.

Let's have an "AMEN" to that.


(And the lack of fussiness extends to all parts of Doc's life from the evidence I have seen.)

Aaron was just a musical hack - couldn't even come up with his own tunes needed to plagiarize the countryside for his musical melodies.
