Oh boy, did I have an ecclectic selection of cow sightings today… From the cows lingering on several shelves in my fridge, to the ones grazing on the kids’ rug at home, to the Fisher-Price magnetic cow on my dishwasher. Oh, and I want to thank the kid who left a book with a cow on the front cover on my son’s preschool classroom floor so I could see it when I dropped him off. Now, if preschoolers are getting in on the daily cow joke, I’m in big trouble. Sorry, no picture of this cow but I didn’t feel like having 20 three-year olds asking me why I was taking a picture of the floor…
And then I got more cows in my email inbox! I want to thank Knotrune for sharing some photos she found on a picture forum she belongs to. All of the photos she shared were taken by her friend during Albuquerque’s Balloon Fiesta 2011 in New Mexico, and among the thousands of hot air balloons launched stood out this cow:
Here is the same cow seen from closer and a different angle:
Remember the cow statue from North Dakota I shared on this blog the other day? I think this cow balloon is so huge it could smother it!
Now, there were many other hot air balloons taking to the sky during Balloon Fiesta but this pig is the one that caught my attention:
Now, that’s what would happen if Wilbur the pig and Charlotte the spider from the book Charlotte’s Web got involved romantically!
