COW TYME

"FOR YOU WHO FEAR MY NAME THE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL RISE WITH HEALING IN HIS WINGS. AND YOU WILL GO FREE, LEAPING WITH JOY, LIKE CALVES LET OUT TO PASTURE.' MALACHI 4:2

Welcome to Tuesday Show and Tail! I know you will stop by Angela's http://wvtreasures.blogspot.com/ and say hello. Come join the fun! Today I found some fun photos of cows on line. The second photo is a reproduction painting titled Cows in Pasture by Julien Dupre. The other photos are just cows doing what they do best enjoying the wide open spaces in a green pasture. When our oldest son was a baby we took a road trip to my husband's grandparents farm in Holly, Colorado. It was his grandparents 60th wedding anniversary and our son was about 4 months old. My husband walked over to some cattle that were chewing their cud hanging around the fence and our son took one look at those cows. One of them moo'd and he started to cry. It is a sweet memory. Those were wonderful days when times were simpler and life seemed to move more slowly. I am a fan of cows as they are such simple animals and they often are depicted in country items like tea towels and rugs and teapot and such. They live simple lives and yet they provide milk and food for us. I like cows.  One of my all time favorite lines is from the T.V. series Mr. Ed when I was a kid. The day Ed met Wilbur , Wilbur asked Mr. Ed to say something, anything. Mr. Ed said "How now brown cow!" I have always loved that line! I hope you enjoyed my simple post today. Now visit the other participates in this fun Tuesday fare!

I'm telling you, Anne, every time I see a cow hub's mom comes back to mind ... she'd say in her okie twang 'they are the dumbest animal I've ever seen.' We'd all chuckle. Apparently as a child in OK they had a cow that she wasn't fond of, so her story goes ...

Have a great week ~

Funny... I say " How Now Brown Cow" often. I love country life and cows just seem to be country!

Cows also make stuff they spread on the fields that makes the corn grow - and oddly enough, I like how it smells when they do that.
