The wisdom of the old farmer (part 10)

"It don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep."
Overheard at the cracker barrel. 

Sure, you've heard this one before, or roughly the same thing….

Me, too.

Still, I realize every once in a while that I'm puffing myself up after spotting another goat amongst the sheep, too easily asking myself "How do I keep doing this stuff?!" and then, you know….

I'm trying to cut back on my "I see the goat!" announcements, trying to take a second look, scanning for a detail that maybe the other guy didn't see, trying to get beyond the goatish stuff….
