As I'm sure the men in our audience will agree, women (particularly hormonal women who are armed) are dangerous creatures. Because of this, wise men know to tread lightly. (young and ignorant men either learn quickly, or they become statistics, and thus sad examples for other men)

And as we have already established, Other Half is a cow man - he barely admits that he even has sheep and goats. In fact, he is quick to point out that the sheep, goats, and Big White Dog that comes with sheep and goats, belong to his WIFE. (unsaid - "I wouldn't have those foo-foo creatures if not for her because I'm a REAL MAN. I have CATTLE.")  Yeah.... whatever.

(Don't be fooled, folks. He kisses lambs.)

Although he isn't big into my livestock, he knows they are important to ME and by default, they are important to his happiness. (cuz "when Mama ain't happy, ain't NOBODY happy.")

And so it was, that no one was more upset than Other Half when he could not locate one of my goat babies the other night. He was walking the whole crew back into their pens when he did a head count and came up short one baby goat.


(extra bonus credit if you can name that quote!)

Other Half quickly backtracked and heard the plaintive cries of his missing buckling. But where was he?

Imagine it is dark, and this is your scene.

Yes! The baby goat was in the boat!

Apparently Raisin Bran had climbed onto the riding mower and jumped into the boat! 

A goat in a boat . . . somewhere there is a Dr Seuss book in this . . .

Quote is from "Lost in Space" Yes, Dt Seuss could have done great things with "a goat in a boat". There is also a book, not by Seuss, called "Sheep in a Jeep" that is good for chuckles. Silly goat!

I know, I know! "Lost in Space". The "space family Robinson" had a computer/robot that would accompany their [youngest?] son Will, and would say the phrase when something was about to "happen." Do I win a prize? a baby goat, perhaps? Glad that Raisin Bran was found. Was Briar upset?

YES! Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner! "Lost In Space!" I'm sure Briar already knew the goat was in the boat. I would imagine that a lot of screaming went on before Other Half got home.
