Random cow sightings for a casual Sunday

We took the kids to an indoor playground this morning for a little fun and exercise. Unlike the indoor playground I took them to the other day, this one didn’t have any cows, at least not in plain sight.

We then drove down the road to Coco’s restaurant for a quick lunch, which never ends up being quick there. No matter which Coco’s location we visit, I always feel we get trapped in time as soon as we walk through the door. Everything seems to be moving in slow motion, including our server, our food, our check… Somehow our kids are never affected by the slowdown – the restaurant appears to have the opposite effect on them! With no appetizer or dessert orders, we managed to be in and out in one hour and 15 minutes today, and only 20 of those minutes were used for eating.

While browsing the menu I spotted my first cow of the day (alright, maybe it was the second or third already).

Cute, but not even close to yesterday’s Bull’s Smokin’ BBQ logo. Come on, Coco’s, impress me!

During storytime tonight, I spotted another cow, this one a lot cuter and reminding of a recent encounter with a new creamer at Target. I found this cow creamer inside the children’s book Mr Putter and Tabby Bake the Cake.

Hey, Mrs Teaberry, you’re my kind of gal! I love your cow creamer, and your teapot cover, and your walking salt shaker, and your coconut with a monkey head, and your fruitcake… Sorry, I’m afraid you’ll have to read the book if you need an explanation… It is a very cute story, you won’t regret it!

If you don’t want to see cows every day, stay away from Facebook

Not that long ago I explained how I stumbled upon the photo of an apparent cow lover on Facebook. Facebook has the canny ability to let you see Friends of Friends photos and comments if your Friends of Friends have allowed such non-private settings.

Silly me, I should have learned my lesson that day. In this case, I’m clearly not a fast learner. A friend of mine commented on one of her friends’ photo today and for the life of me, I couldn’t see what was so interesting on the tiny thumbnail, so I clicked on the photo to view its larger size. This poor lady had a monkey on her back! Yes, I said monkey, not cow. I thought the photo was pretty funny and I was curious to click the side arrows to see what else was in her album. Warning: if you don’t want to run into cows, don’t click on photo albums from people who don’t know.

This lady’s obsession interest in cows is quite striking but I have to admit I really enjoyed her photos. I’m not really sure where she took all of them but from the captions, I’m guessing it was in Spain, so I’m taking you on a special Spanish tour today!

First stop, a Christmas cow. I’ve never seen one of these before but I think it looks very, very nice.

Second stop, a… wait, what the hell is that???

Alright, I’ve never seen anything like this either. Is it a cow mermaid, or a mermaid cow? What does it mean? Apparently this cow thinks it’s very sexy. I’m not sure what to think of it myself… Spanish art or Spanish humor?

Third stop, real cows, yeah! I’m guessing this lady must have rolled over in a clover field before posing for the photo. I can’t explain how else she was able to attract so many cows. Say cheese!

Now I’m willing to bet this lady believes 100% in the daily cow sighting theory. What do you think?

Facebook helps you meet cow lovers

I’ll admit it, I’m not a big Facebook fan. I reluctantly joined the club to create a Facebook page for this blog, and one for another website of mine. Somehow I ended up creating a personal profile and feeling obligated to make “friends” with people who’d be upset if I didn’t connect with them… I’m getting used to the whole system and it’s not so bad, but it clearly doesn’t have the networking power of LinkedIn.

Just like on LinkedIn, I like the ability to comment on my friends’ updates. What’s interesting about Facebook is that it feels compelled to notify you of every single comment posted after yours, even though those comments may be from complete strangers to you.

That’s how I encountered my daily cow. Last night I wrote a comment on a web link my friend Sally posted, and by this morning a number of Sally’s friends had added their own comments. I don’t know why but I always feel I should read them, just in case I miss something. As I did, I was intrigued by the profile picture of one of Sally’s friends. To protect her identity I won’t share her name and I blurred out her face, but here’s her profile picture:

As the networking saying goes, “it’s not just who you know, but who they know”. Well, thanks to Facebook’s Friends of Friends feature, I clearly found someone who’s more crazy about cows that I am! Crazy enough to display a lifesize fake cow on her profile photo… Kudos to her!

The Cow Depot helps you see a cow every day

I met my daily quota of cow sightings today thanks to the milk I drank with my tea, the cream cheese I spread on my bagel and a couple of new children’s books from the library.

I wanted to use today’s post to share a website I stumbled upon today because if you like cows, you’ll want to check it out too. And even if you’re not a cow lover, I’m sure you’ll find this site quite fascinating, simply because of the extent of its collection.

After spotting a cow on the CBS TV show “How I met your mother” earlier this week, I was curious to find out where that big counter cow decoration was available for purchase. I did a search for cow cookie jars but didn’t find that exact cow. Then I searched for a cow kitchen decoration, and I ended up at… the Cow Depot!

Daily cow on Cow Depot website

Well, there are hundreds, if not a couple thousands, of cow items displayed on this website, from cow decorations for any room of the house, to cow greeting cards, to cow birthday decorations. I’m guessing this company has almost anything cow related that someone may be looking for (I really wonder how huge their warehouse is…).

Here are a few of my favorites:
