Today is March 15. Any of you familiar with Shakespeare know to "beware the Ides of March." Well let me just tell you....
A few years back, my dad bought a billy goat that had been born on March 15. Naturally, Dad named him Ides. Ides grew to be a 300-or-so-pound goat that smelled, well, exactly like what you would expect a 300-pound goat to smell like. He also had a mean streak.
Beware the Ides of March, indeed.
UPDATE: Mom found a picture of Dad feeding Ides in the good ole days when Ides hadn't quite gotten to the 300 pound mark yet.
