I didn’t get a picture, so stock art had to do for this post. After my hour of downtime I headed out to work. I made it a whole 5 blocks and had to stop and put cows away.
Ok, so they were yearlings and fairly small, I’ve met some dogs that were nearly as large, and comically I thought to myself that the chiropractor and two of my clients were larger than the two calves.
But the extra comical part was that another lady in a minivan headed the opposite direction stopped to help keep traffic stopped. She asked me if they were mine. I simply replied “No, but I have handled cows before”.
I proceeded to get the two calves inside their property and closed the gate as best as I was able. I hoped they stayed put long enough for their owner to return.
It’s one of very few grandfathered farms within city limits. Probably a dozen acres, and right next to the railroad tracks, but very much surrounded by city residential neighborhood. It was just amusing.
I texted Nathan about my post vote derail, and he replied: “They have cows? I guess they do since you just put them back… You just had an Altamont moment…🐄🐄🐄🐄”
I simply replied yep, but thought: Altamont, Ainsworth, Brayton, Cameron, Bethany, Ridgeway, and Eagleville. Though that last one was an old mare that would stand on the 2 lane highway just about every week, and I didn’t actually make contact, you just had to get close and she’d take off up the driveway.
My life sure has been interesting at times! Vote-Moo!
May you have an amusing electoral day. May you enjoy the odd moments of life. May you see your special moments.
