Cow Country Contest!!!! Caption this Photo for $25 Gift Certificate!

This is just a random post......

about ordinary happenings in a day in my life.

Everyday on my drive to work, I pass this cow on the corner....

Today I decided to take her photo....

She was completely unimpressed with me...

The goats were a bit interested, but not really.

No matter what I did to get her attention,

and believe me, I whistled, I turned up my radio, I hooted, I hollered...nothing......



she just continued grazing.
Until, her owner, drove by her corral......

He rolled down the window on his pick-up....

She trotted close to the fence....

He said, "Bye-bye." to her......



She actually moo'd to him.....

Loudly, several times.....

As if to say, "Hey, where ya going? I wanna go too!"

It was then that I seized the opportunity!

I walked closer, and snapped this head shot.....

And this is where you come into the picture......

Post a comment and

Write a caption for this photo for a chance to win

a $25 Brown & Hopkins Gift Certificate!

Contest ends March 23 at 5PM

By the way,

Does anyone know if it's true that
kissing a cow is good luck?

My mom always said it was,
but I think I am all set with that......

Just wondering.

"What?? A sale at Brown & Hopkins? I'd better get MOOOving!"

The picture looks so drab in the background.. The first thing that came to my mind that the cow would be thinking is.." Excuse me, M'am, Do you know the way to a nice salad bar?"

They strolled the lane together
The sky was studded with stars
They reached the gate together
And he lifted up the bars
She raised her brown eyes to him
There's nothing between them now
He was just the hired man
And she was a lonesome cow.zrvgeetc

This is so much fun, that I have decided to increase the pay out! We are going to choose two winners! The runner up will receive a $15 Gift Certificate! The B & H Staff will vote on the one that tickled our funny bone the most and then the runner up will be chosen randomly by placing all the comments in a milk bucket and picking one out!

Liz said...

Cute post, and I agree, she is a cute cow....I wonder what her name is? I may have to go ask someday.

cris saccoccio said...

I think that is a great picture, what comes to mind is; If only humans accepted the different people that pass through our lives daily like this cow does life rally could be a lot simpler too.
