Pen and Ink: Are You Kidding Me?


This site where our summer camper is parked has got maybe a dozen other guests here. Some are here for only the summer, and some live here all year round. There are a few of us that have dogs for pets (I’m one of them) and take them out to walk them around the area. This one camper that moved in I could see they had a rather large dog that didn’t appear to be on a leash so I kept clear of walking near it for my Cici’s safety. Later on, after our little walk Cici and I had returned to our own little abode where I saw my husband starring out the back window. “Whatcha looking at honey?” I asked. He said, “Did you see the idiot that brought a goat here when he parked his camper here?” “Goat! Are you kidding me!?” I asked with surprise! Well I had to look too, then went out for a closer look. And sure as the sun shines (but not today, it’s raining) there was a goat out there. Just what we need. And I thought is was a dog. Lets hope he doesn’t get off his rope and eat everything in site. After about a week or so. I never saw the goat over there again. Don’t know why. I didn’t ask.

  1. This sounds like a case for Detective Binky! I sure hope the goat wasn’t brought there for, well, you know. . .

    In your drawing he seems to have a pretty serious attitude.

  2. Maybe the goat ate the camper??? LoL!!!

    Love and hugs!


  3. Could the goat be a pet?

    Your goat drawing looks so thoughtful…a thinker goat 🙂

    • Well that is what we all thought here, until Binky put ideas in my head…lol

      He is a thinker…thinking
      of what he will chew up and eat next….lol

      Thank you for coming by to comment here, Kroten!
      Oh, while I think of it, when will I see Kame again?

      • I am here aunt Debbie 🙂

        Is it just my eyes or other also see that this goat has mischievous eye.

      • Hi Kame, so glad you came by to see me today. I was wondering where you have been.
        It’s a goat, therefore it likely has mischief on its mind….looking for something to chew and eat.

        Thank you for commenting, Kame!

      • If that goat is in my country in November,he will be thinking how to get out of the country….because we, I mean my mommy and her human friends will eat him for Idhul Adha festive. Fortunately turtles never been in the menu.

      • Oh my, Kame, this goat is safer here then. But where you live, better for food, like cows and pigs are here.
        Glad you came back in, Kame!

        Come again,
        Aunt Debbie xx

  4. Man, there’s intricate detail in every aspect of this piece, Deb. How long did it take you to complete this?

    • This one took me a few hours. I’m going to say about 4 plus hours, with a couple of breaks in addition to that.

      Thanks for the lovely comment, George!

      Deb xx

      • I agree with George. I didn’t notice how much detail there was till I clicked for a larger view. Well done!!!

      • Thanks Tony, there is…
        Thanks for coming back in to comment on the drawings. I know the story kind of side tracked everyone.

        Thanks again, Tony!

  5. Amazing picture 🙂
    I hope, that that man didn’t eat his goat…
    Have a lovely rest of the day Debbie 🙂

  6. I like the goat and I like the story too. It sounds like a great place to be.
    Unless you’re a goat.

    Now come on Deb what is so strange about taking a Goat on one’s holidays? 🙂 lol I mean it could have been a lot worse, it could have been a troop of Howler Monkeys and then what? Well you wouldn’t have been able to enjoy a nice banana for your lunch that’s for sure as Howler Monkeys just adore a lunch time banana, of course those Goats will eat absolutely anything, now where did I leave my Cape? Ahh yes there it is in that Goats mouth… hey come back with my Cape 🙂 lol

    • There you see, the goat will even eat what the Howler would eat. Really, Andro, I just don’t know why anyone would think there goat would be happy at the beach.
      I’m glad it gone though, as long as it’s not, well, you know….

      Thanks for commenting, Andro!

      You have a good rest of the night now. Remember….small bites.

  8. A goat does seem to be an unusual choice for a pet…
    it sure made for a wonderful subject, though!
    An excellent piece, Ms. A!

    • Yes, I agree, especially to take here of all places. Some people though…
      I’m glad you like the drawing though, which is what this post is really about.
      There is a lot of detail in it. I was quite please with it when I was finished.

      Thank you, Bob. You made my day.

  9. MMMM fried goat…. one of my favorites! LOL
    I think that I found them! A few weeks ago was my 30th class reunion, and to get back to the lake that it was held it, we had to pass a trailer with 5 goats in the front yard, that’s right, that’s how we roll around here!

  10. It was probably barbequed. Maybe they didn’t have a fridge so they bought a live one so it stayed fresh

  11. i’m going to hope they had the goat around for fresh milk…. it’s a great drawing. its stare is quite intense. makes me think that goat means business. glad it didn’t eat everything in sight!!

  12. A great detailed drawing Deb, I love it, and the mystery of the vanishing goat is still unsolved I take it?… Hmm, makes you want to take up detective work and solve the case, like Sherlock Holmes. hugs to yo and a pat to Cici, … xPenx.

    • Well it is no longer a mystery. The people that were there are back. They had pulled there camper out and off the Island before Hurricane Irene cam several weeks back. Now they have returned…goat and all. It is their pet, and they promised to keep it tied up, which is kind of sad for a goat,..
      Glad you like the drawing, and thanks for commenting, Lady Pen!

  13. Fantastic artwork. I love a good goat story. I also love a good Goat Ropin’ but that is another story. Before I read the comments though I was really picturin’ a big old Bar-B-Que grill.

    • Ah, the goat story has had an interesting turn in it. Solved really, but I’m certainly glad you like it. But I have all the commenter to really thank for making if more fun and interesting.

      Goat roppin’. I’ve never seen a goat get roped before. Tell me more…

      Your the second one that was considering eating this ole goat..lol. Seems that Kame mommy up above would do the same.

      Thank you for the comment about the artwork, Bo!
      Come back again.

  14. Cool drawing of a goat, Debbie. Looks like a pygmy goat. Goats are really pretty enjoyable animals. I raised nubians (the larger ones with hanging down ears while on the farm, years ago. I don’t think it fair to the goat to have to live in a camper, though. 🙂 Maybe they were babysitting. Love the drawing.

    • Since their return to their camper space we have had a chance to speak with them. Nope, not babysitting, it is their goat, and where they go, the go goes…I would think where they get to go would be quite limited. 🙂
      I have no idea what kind of goat it is, you probably know better than I would. I just drew it as I remembered it.
      Glad you like it, Leslie, and thank you for commenting!

  15. Great story and love the detail on the horns!

    • I’m just glad the story had a good ending for the goat…though I can think of better places to keep it.
      Thanks for the comment on my pen and ink drawing, Hjortur!

      Deb xx

  16. Your work is really extraordinary! I love it. Amazing pen work!

  17. lol wow that’s quite a story, who would take a goat camping! No wonder you thought it was a dog. Goats will eat anything, tin, metal, concrete, wood, even rubber. its’ rather frightening to wonder how they survive it. So they definityly do not make good campers, they keep eating all the firewood and cooking pots!
    Have a great weekend Deb.
    Big hug, Nikki

    • That is exactly what I had thought when I learned it was a goat…Who does that?!
      Hugs, Deb xx
