    ... river plays tricks with you, I though that piece of wood was a goats head" he agreed and no sooner had the goats head passed, the body of a child passed. Sadly it was real and had been there sometime. Again, I am somewhat unmoved by this but am heartbroken for the child father who would have had to put his child into a river with the only consolation being his child was in heaven.
