Filbert & Company

Once again, Filbert was asked to take part at a local farm in the annual farm tour on the Key Peninsula. Filbert carries a small pack of chocolates to satisfy the sweet tooth of farm tourers and tempt the no candy children, who could take a chocolate but had to tuck it in their pocket for "later". The problem with the bite-size chocolates is the bite-size candy wrappers. They are still picking up wrappers around the farm from last year.
Well, being the professional that he is, Filbert brought along a solution this year.

Curious George. Curious George was the trash goat.

Look in Filbert's pack

Eat a chocolate...or tuck it in your pocket for "later"

Put your wrapper in Curious George's pack

Curious George was a big baby though and had to be held a lot and was glued to Filbert's side, making him doubt his decision to bring him along. But it did solve the problem of wrappers around the farm. The children loved throwing their trash into the trash goat.

Even the "later" children ran back with a little bit of trash to add to George's pack.

Filbert was been asked back next year.

That is so cute! I just love the idea of a trash goat.

smart thinking, to bring along a goat with trash bags attached!

and yes Wendy, you did hear me say I would like a goat...of course you did. And it needs to be black with blue eyes.

got any?

Oooh! If I was a chocolate goat or a trash bag goat I'd be more interested in the crinkling plastic wrappers and I'd think that there were peppermints in there!!!! No child would have survived my hunt for mints! Tee hee...
