Today is December 31, the last day of 2011. I can now announce officially I’ve seen at least one cow every single day this year. Therefore the daily cow theory is proven and true, with over 365 cow sightings out of 365 days. Wow cow!
I’ve decided to continue documenting my cow sightings in 2012, although I probably won’t do it every day. After all, I do have quite a lot of things on my to-do list I need to get working on. But I’ll make sure to share the good, the bad and the ugly. And the cutest, the freakiest, the biggest…
My last cow of the year 2011 came through UPS yesterday in a box my sister-in-law sent. When we opened it today, we saw it contained cool gifts for the kids and some for us too. Below is one of the best Christmas presents I’ve received this year, reminding me about two of my favorite things: reading books and blogging about cows. And since I read every day, I’m now guaranteed to see at least four cows every single day.
Cow bookmark - got books?
Pretty nice gift, huh? Thanks, Steph!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to start my countdown to 2012 and celebrate a whole year of daily cows! Should I toast to the new year with a glass of milk?

My kids and I read a new children’s book tonight called Joseph had a little overcoat by Simms Taback:
- Joseph had a little overcoat by Simms Taback
And here’s what we found in a book telling a story about an overcoat:
- There’s a cow in Joseph had a little overcoat
Isn’t this a cute cow, with its tongue sticking out?
Talking about cute cows, look what Knotrune shared with me the other day. She found this photo of a cow sofa on the internet:

‘m working on my list of best cows of 2011 and I think this has to make it to the list. What do you think?

Since we’re now proud members of the San Diego Natural Museum, we spent the morning there and then took my mom out for some yummy Chinese lunch. I don’t know what it is with Chinese buffet restaurants, but they like to feature claw machines. From personal experience, I want to guess at least 50% of claw machines keep cows prisoners, and this one was no exception:

Look how cute this one is with its “hearty” cheeks and red hooves. Will someone please rescue it before Valentine’s day? It’s at Sunrise Buffet in San Diego, California.

If you’re wondering where Facebook billionnaire Mark Zuckerberg is spending his Christmas vacation, I have the answer for you: he’s in Vietnam. No, I’m not stalking the poor guy. It just happened to be a news item on Yahoo News today.
This may be a strategic trip, since Vietnam blocks its Vietnamese citizens from accessing Facebook (and I thought China was the only country this repressive in Asia). While there, Zuckerberg decided to do like the locals and rides a cow. Well, technically it’s a water buffalo:

Now, did you see the horns on that cow? I’m sorry but there’s no way I’d stay even close to one of those and I definitely wouldn’t ride one, if case it decided to go bezerk. Would you?
