hi. Your goat doesn't look happy to be parting with her money -- or maybe just being perched up there. I think only $45.

MommyTime said...

My first guess was gong to be $87.43, and then I second guessed myself and lowered it to fifty-something on your other page. I realize that you probably aren't going to call it fair for two totally different guesses from the same person to count. Also, I'm guessing you won't just take the guess that's closer but actually will expect me to choose. So I'm going to say here that I think my $87.43 guess should be the one counted, because I think it's closer.
