|This is serious people watching. Though I'm sure we were getting plenty of looks too.|
|Hattie wasn't in love with the spots, I stuck one of mine on her for the picture because she'd already discarded all of her own.|
|Loving her little Critter book from the kid's meal. Maybe I shouldn't have traded her last on in for ice cream.|
|Yay for Free Chick-Fil-A!!|
Our cow ears didn't stand up to the rain very well, and Hattie's literally wouldn't stand up at all because they blew off and landed in a puddle as soon as we got out of the car. But my limp-eared calf and I went in for our free chicken.
I haven't dressed up for Cow Appreciation day before. Y'all, we were the only stinkin' cows in the restaurant (that didn't work there at least). I know it was breakfast and they'd only been open an hour, but I expected a few more cows than just us! I was kind of hoping we'd blend in with the herd, I guess. But alas. We did get our entire meal free though and that was a delight....I thought we would just be getting two free entrees, but the girl said we could get whatever we wanted. Score! So we ate and ate and ate. And I suppose since we were cows we 'chewed the cud' a little with some of the workers. It was Bovine Bliss indeed.
Speaking of Bovine, two moves ago we lived near a town called Bovina. You would think with a name like that there would be an unusual number of cows, but there wasn't any more than average. Every time we passed Bovina we'd sing, "Oh Bo-VINA, don't you cry for me. I'm going home to Vicksburg with your hand on my knee" (To the tune of Oh Susanna - and ONLY Emery's hand being the one on my knee). I sure am glad we escaped living in that town, if we had stayed put, that's probably where we would have settled.
Well, I'm thankful for free Chick-Fil-A, and for the LORD putting us right where He wants us. Happy Friday!
