Aesop's Fable Friday.

The Goatherd and the Goat.

A Goatherd was one day gathering his flock to return to the fold, when one of his Goats strayed and refused to join the rest.

He tried for a long time to get her to return by calling and whistling to her, but the Goat took no notice of him at all; so at last he threw a stone at her and broke one of her horns.

In dismay, he begged her not to tell his master: but she replied, "You silly fellow, my horn would cry aloud even if I held my tongue."

Moral of the story: It's no use trying to hide what can't be hidden.

That's a good one for kids. They always try to cover their tracks when it just isn't possible.

dcat - would that be a reference to the Hildebeast by any chance? ;-)

tshsmom - so true! In fact I have found MYSELF to be momentarily guilty of thinking that it can be done when it just can't. Only for a flash of a moment though....;-)
