Goat tale

When Curly escaped from the nativity scene at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Fergus Falls, Minn., last Christmas, much of the surrounding area was put on "goat watch," with sightings reported on the local radio (March, "Where's my goat? Found!").

Twenty-five days later she wandered onto the Tony Loomer farm and was returned to her owners, Jim and Karen Aakre. Karen, a former art teacher, wrote a book from Curly's perspective called Curly Gets Cold Feet.

The book, which she also illustrated, is sold by its publisher, the Victor Lundeen Co.
