Attempted pie heist at Apifera!

"I heard the door."

"Relax, they won't even notice."

"If we work our way upward, we have a shot at the pie table."

"She made blackberry this time."

"I know, I know, it's worth the risk of getting busted."

"Let's go for it - you head for the right, I'll divert them on the left. They always act calmer when they have guests so as not to look frazzled. I'll entice the guests, that's your chance to grab the pie. Ready?"

"I'm ready, Big Bear, on three." Note: I've discovered with each mission, the goats have code names.

"One, two, three..."

And they were off. As the hospice guests enjoying a reprieve at our Pie Party we had this month, Stella and Iris had plans of their own. Our friend and guest, Emma, caught the daring twosome in the act, having just broken out of their pasture, making their way up to the pie table.

Alas, the covert operation was diverted at Walnut Hill by the dirt farmer, and they were banished to the back 5.

But let's hear it for the old girls, they sure know how to entertain at a party. And one can't blame them for trying to sneak a pie or two. Later that night, I brought them fresh berries for a supper side dish.

Laughing so hard right now. That's fantastic. You go girls! The fresh berries as a supper side dish is the perfect ending to this wonderful adventure. Can't wait to read this to Emma. She's going to love it.

Stella and Iris are gastronomes of the highest order! Nothing is better than blackberry pie.

I'd even help the gals snatch the pie.......sweet things that they are.

You're so sweet bringing them berries after their devious plans to go for the pie.
GOATS..., you just never know what they're going to do. Opportunity is their middle name.

This is so comical--reminded me of the scene in "Babe" (one of my favorite movies!) where the pig and the duck try to steal the clock. Cute picture of the two rascals with their little goaty tails sticking up with anticipation!
