About the Goat...

Since I discovered how to add a photo to the header of the blog I hope to change it every month or so. After you've all had a chance to enjoy the image and imagine the story that goes with it I will tell you a little about it.

This old billy lives in North Eastern Venezuela and is the de facto guard at a crossroads there. Our missionary friend told us to have our camera ready because this old guy is always there. Sure enough, as we came to the crossing and greeted the guys with the machine guns my beloved rolls down the window and gets this great photo! If you're ever on the road between Maturin and Puerta la Cruz be sure to look for him, I'm sure he's still keeping the intersection neatly trimmed!
