Watch out for cow overload!

Sorry for the blog hiatus. I had to take care of some personal issues for a little while but I’m back, with a boatload of cow sightings to report. I’ve got some really interesting cows to share, starting with the ones I saw yesterday. And it was a lot of cows.

I went out for brunch at a local restaurant called Gingham’s with a group of friends. I had visited their website earlier that week and realized it was quite focused on “meat” items, which is not my preference.

Well, here’s the first hint I was definitely entering meatland: the front door.

As soon as we walked in, the first words coming out of my mouth were, Holy cow! Perched on top of a wall, this all American cow was staring at us.

But wait, there’s more. This cow had friends keeping her company. Plenty of friends.

And for the great finale, I present you with the real jumping cow! Remember the German girl whose parents didn’t want to buy her a horse, so she trained Luna the cow to be ridden like a horse? Yep, a large canvas of her and her bovine friend were overlooking our table. Nice!
