Xarifa. She's a goat. A Rawhiti English Goat, to be exact! Each year, we choose a theme for the naming of the goats, and 2 years ago when she was born, it was characters from Beatrix Potter. We had a lot of girls that year, and Xarifa was the last born, so we were a bit pushed for names we liked. Xarifa, it seems, was the name of a dormouse who was a pet of hers, and of whom she write upon the death of the dormouse:

"'Poor little thing, I thought at one time she would last as long as myself. I believe she was a great age. I wonder if ever another dormouse had so many acquaintances . . . I think she was in many respects the sweetest little animal I ever knew.' When Beatrix wrote The Fairy Caravan, one of the characters she wrote about was a little sleepy dormouse named Xarifa." From Peterrabbit.com

Xarifa is a very sweet goat.

What happened?? Did I kill it? :wink: :wink:

What about Y is for Year, and all that it entails, season to season, beginning to end?

OK my turn! Hopefully not too difficult - actors and actresses but it must be the surname not christian name used alphabetically.

Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
