(A good photo of me!)
The Summer of 1969 was my worst. As a young goatman growing up in North Texas, I wanted to get to know my neighbors. You know, I just wanted to meet and greet, say "hi", and hang out. Unfortunately, the people living around Lake Worth were not open to someone as different as I. I was hunted, shot at, and generally disparaged in the newspapers.
Since that horrible July, I have kept a low profile. While I still live around Lake Worth, I stay away from the roads. When I see fishermen on the lake, I lie in the grass until they pass by. I spend most of my days hiking in the beautiful wild area around the lake and enjoying the wildlife and peacefulness. In the summer, I usually swim to the islands and hang out there.
I am writing this blog in hopes of creating a new beginning. Now that four decades have passed since that eventful summer, I hope that the people in the area are more open minded to me and my living here.
I want this blog to be a history of my presence and a forum where I can connect with those who are willing to accept a goatman into their neighborhood. I encourage you to review the numerous articles and stories about me. I also invite everyone to add comments to this blog. Ask me any questions you wish. I look forward to our getting to know one another.
