I had nothing the day of rollover. My mom has had a stroke... and I'd been gone caring for her until the day of rollover. (Just mentioning... hospital staff seem to not notice "old people" and their needs. I'm not amused at that, but... I digress. I have close family members who are in the medical business... so this is not an idle comment.)

I made myself go out and find and shoot some cows.

I left a note for my hubby: "Gone to find some bovine and shoot them."

Not oddly, he saw it and didn't take much notice of it.

I love that. Ha!

It used to be odd when I went out to "shoot" something.

Anyway... carrying on...

I shot bovine.

I edited bovine.

I uploaded bovine.

I titled the cow that had stared at me "Bovine".

I stared back at him on my monitor for an hour or two...

I didn't like him just as much as he didn't like me.

So... I took matters into my own hands.

And now... we have... THIS atrocity!


... with this hand-held fan that's gotten me TWO chicken sandwiches from Chik-Fil-A on Cow Appreciation Days so far... for... FREE!!

I keep it in our pantry... because... it's food. LOL

CFA gives a sandwich... once a year... to anyone who dresses up like a cow. They even give out these masks so one can dress up like a cow so they can give the person with the mask a free meal.

Yummm... I'm full.

It probably won't score as well as ... the actual cow... that I'd shot... but... THIS ONE... makes me smile.

So... I'm clicking "submit"... and smiling.

We'll just see later what YOU think.

I'm already happy. :D

I was gonna reshoot it... before I heard back from SC that taking words off of signs is legal nowadays... with whited-over text on the fan... and no text on my shirt... but... this angle was so perfect that I knew that I'd not be able to recreate it (from multiple reshoot experience in the past).

I'm REALLY gonna be disappointed if anyone calls out that this is me.




I'm off to bed.

I'm exhausted.

Life is good... even when it's not.
