In our herd of Nubian mix goats, there is one without ears. If you ask me what happened to her ears, I'd ask if you didn't know that fried ear sandwiches were a delicacy in these parts.
Today, we had more ear sandwiches.

I was on my way out to hang laundry when younger daughter, with Peterson's Guide in hand, asked me if I wanted to go check out a mushroom with her. "Naw, I don't think so," I said, but I did ask what it looked like. She said, "Like a raisin on top."
"Did you hear that?" I hollered to husband. "What?" he said. "She's found a mushroom that looks like a raisin on top." "I'm getting my shoes on," he said. Daughter said, "I'm so glad I found something that makes you laugh with delight."
It took us a minute to find them again. They are tricky little devils, and yet so obvious when you do see them. We've found about a dozen in that little area and find another one or two every time we go to marvel.
