Zoey’s Coat now sits on a shelf in the milking Parlor. Over the past few years she wore it to help her get through Montana’s winter and the cold nights of spring.

On Friday, May 3 around 6 p.m. I made the decision, along with my veterinarian, Dr. Rollet Pryun, to end Zoey’s life.

Hi! I’m Dr. Jamison Starbuck, a naturopathic family physician. I’m here today with health tips for kids about skin things: freckles, moles and birthmarks.

Recently, "Pea Green Boat" Skipper Annie Garde took a tour of Silver Summit, a "playground for everyone" in Missoula's McCormick Park. It's an all-abilities playround that invites children excited by the brightly-colored equipment and welcoming atmosphere to discover nooks, crannies and equipment that can accommodate their bodies, their mobility devices, and their ways of playing. Listen as Heath, Jenny, Logan, Adam, Lisa and Mataya show Annie their favorite spots at Silver Summit.

Caution: Goats on road.

For years now I have said jokingly, “a sick goat is a well behaved goat." Well the joke is on me.

To date some of the goats have managed to thwart my attempts to keep them in their pasture and safe.  To them the grass is greener not only on the other side of the fence but especially along the road.

Since they apparently believe, "the grass is greener" and "tastier" on the other side, I installed a sign warning the UPS driver, dog walkers and others passing.

Attention kids of all ages: Bill Harley returns to Missoula on Mother’s Day, May 14 at 2:00 p.m. to perform your favorite children's songs and stories.

As a singer and storyteller, Harley is a favorite of fans of MTPR's "Pea Green Boat." Entertainment Weekly called him "the Mark Twain of contemporary children's music."
