A Random Act of Kindness

My local organic grocery delivery service, SPUD! asked its customers, via Facebook, if they had any critters that enjoyed eating fruits and veggies. I have several, of course, but when forced to choose, I had to go with my man, Archie the smiling goat.

Arch is almost always the first one to jump up and say hello when I wander down to visit my goaties. He doesn't liked to be petted all that much, but he is a very curious little bugger, and he truly enjoys having visitors.

Here he is, nibbling on my sweatshirt.

Well, apparently the folks at SPUD were as charmed with my Archie-boy as I am, because along with my regular grocery order, they sent me an entire case of less-than-perfect produce for my critters.

How cool is that?!?

I want to keep the goodness going! I am hereby declaring a giveaway. Something knitted and something chocolate, most likely, but the details aren't yet full formed. I really just want to make someone feel as lucky and grateful as I felt as the recipient of someone's thoughtfulness. You don't need to follow my blog or answer a trivia question to win, just leave a comment on this post and you're in the running. ;)

Thanks again to the good folks at SPUD for the critter treats - they will be very much enjoyed. :)


  1. That box of less than perfect produce looks good enough for any 2 legged critters to eat.

  2. How kind of SPUD! Too often, they would just throw the stuff away....and I am sure Archie will greatly appreciate it:)

  3. @ Simcha - I agree! There were a few that were rotten, but most of the fruit looks just fine to me. I have no doubt that a two-legged critter will snag an apple out of there at some point. ;)

  4. Those look like some good juicing apples if you ask me!

  5. Alright ladies, you were the only 3 to comment, so shoot me your mailing addresses (yes, Kathryn, you too!) and I'll drop some goodies in the mail for you here in a bit. Thanks for following the ol' blog and thanks for being such supportive and kind friends. :)
