The Cows Laughed Today
If you know someone who has a herd of cattle what do they say when they call them? My Daddy used to call Sue cow, Sue cow. John yells two cow, two cow. This morning John said he called, he honked his truck horn, and even the roar of the pear burner woudn't get them to come eat the burned pear. He said some of them looked at him like "what do you want old man?' Just yesterday they ate heartily of the burned pear but seems the green clover grew over night and they were grazing on it. Yipee for the rain we have had and there is more in the forcast for tonight. I even believed the weathermen to the point I made a trip to Wal*Mart to buy Weed and Feed for my yard and spread it on. Hope it rains on it. If it keeps raining here and there the pear burning (burning stickers off cactus for cattle to eat) days may be over for now. Cows are so fickle. If they are hungry and you feed them they love you and remember you. When they have plenty of green stuff to eat they tend to ignore you. Except Shelly Marie of course. Remember her? I still miss her and think of her often.
