It's heck to get old. The Old Goat is not one to leap out of bed, beat his chest end roar at the dawn. In fact the Old Goat opens one eye cautiously, takes a dim view of the gray dawn, and is very reluctant to get up. That's after' a sober night yet! * * * THE WHITE BANK has a group of pigeons decorating the west side and it's not a sight for eyes either. Some people like pigeons, in. fact all our so- called feaithered friends. Much as the Old Goat detests poetiry maybe this little gem about that pigeon roost is appropriate: Pigeons are pretty in parks and pens, ' But Oh, those White Bank Denizens — Are accurate to a high degree, Why do they always pick on me? This was written in protest by an Algona woman who was decorated a couple of times as she sashayed past the roost. To paraphrase one other poet who had a thing about a rose, maybe this deal can be poetized by "A pigeon is a dirty bird, dirty bird, oirty bird." # # ' # MINI SKIRTS FOR MEN is the latest revolting development in England, supposed to be doudy end 'conservative. They look positively awful. However it might also foe observed the Scots were the original mini-skirt males, and there was a great worry among the faithful about what in the world they wore underneath the kilts. Frankly the Old Goat wouldn't be surprised if the males who wear the new mini skirts wear pink panties. It Would seem appropriate. Or maybe a girdle. . that kind ef farb whe earett :• - * '•#' * GARRY MOORI isn't going to be missed much, and it will be « relief from thje MHcall«d com edy of Kerby. Missed on tha ghwv is Carol Burnett. The Old Goat is getting weaned away from What's My Une by Atldy Williams who has an entertaining show as long as he doesn't try to hog the spotlight, the Old Goat can get up a mild hate at Susie Knickerbocker but nothing like his pet peeve of months ago, Dorothy Kilgallen The Candid Camera is spoiled by the antics of. Allen Funt who looks so pleased with himself as he catches people making fools of themselves. While he makes a pile of money getting people to laugh at them. It doesn't seem the decent thing to do. And the Old Goat felt a bit robbed on Christmas day because there was no football that day — not until Monday did the giants grunt. ' i . * eeaaeeeeeeeeee»eeeeeeeee Portland Mr*.
