Or maybe that should be ’til the cows GO home??
I was reorganizing my catalog of photos and came upon this one from last year. I had gone home at lunch to walk my dogs, but was short on time. I needed to quickly (or so I thought) get back to the office. As I came around the curve, I encountered these “ladies”.
Thankfully, having grown up in this area, I am accustomed to deer, rabbit, dogs, and other critters running out in front of me–so I don’t generally speed across country roads. These ladies were a bit of a surprise. But there they stood, in all their glorious black and white bovinity.
They came closer. I backed my car up. And then they moved forward. I backed up a little more. Whatever way I moved, they moved with me. They were persistent. And let it be known, should this ever happen to you, the phrase “Shoo cow, shoo”–doesn’t work.
I snapped several of these with my blackberry and emailed them off to my secretary with a note that I’d be a little late for my 1 pm meeting. No one would have otherwise believed me.
