Hide and Go Seek

How could two llamas just disappear? I mean, they’re kind of big.

They were just there earlier, greeting me with that “whadjabringme” look when they noticed the feed scoop. Didn’t take them long to figure out that I am the bringer of noms.

Yet after I cleaned the center section of the barn this morning they were missing. Two big llamas nowhere to be seen.

I scratched my head and thought, “What the heck?”

I walked to their pasture to search the innermost corners of their shed. No llamas. Then, as I started scanning the pasture back and forth, contemplating a possible alien abduction, I swear I heard giggling.

“Hmm?”, I thought. “I wonder…”

“Peek-A-Boo”, said Thelma sticking her head out from behind the hay barn.

“Hee, hee, that was so funny”, said Louise

“Now why would you girls do that to me?”, I scolded.

“Well, we drew the short straw during the nightly drive-the-human-crazy meeting”, replied Louise.  “It was our turn.”

Karen Patrick said...

What fun. I'm glad that you are enjoying your new llamas. Do you always carry your camera with you? I don't understand how you get such great shots unless it's around your neck at all times. The girls seem to be settling in quite well. They are a great addition to your menagerie.
