Today I’d like to do a comparison exercise between the cows I get to spot and the cows other people happen to see. I saw a number of cows today but the most memorable sighting was in this book called Best Time of Day by Eileen Spinelli:
I don’t know what I was thinking. Expect no cows in a book with a tractor on the front cover? A few pages into the book you see a hint of a cow (technically it was the cow’s rear end) but the most striking page is actually this one:
Does that farmer live and breathe cows, or what? Don’t worry, the cow does show up at the end with its best friends. Ah, cows and pigs, friends forever.
I think this gives you a good idea of the type of cows I get to see every day. Now let me show you what my husband ran into during a trip to a customer site in the Seattle, WA area this week. He met what I want to call the most “interesting” cow of the week at a coffee shop called Udderly Delicious (of course, what else?), part of the Schuh Farms:
Below is the large cow he spotted on the outside wall of the coffee shop. The cow is holding an ice-cream cone in its hoof by the way (sorry, hard to see with poor lighting).
Would you like to give a shot at a photo caption for this one? Please try it because all of the captions I can think of are R-rated…
