It’s extremely unnerving when your very precise wishes very precisely come true.

At least it’s unnerving to me.

Faithful readers know I have long loved Oreo – also known as Galloway – cows.

UD loves them so much she has elaborate plans to visit places around Maryland that feature them. She loves them so much she has priced houses in places like this.


And now it turns out that a herd of Galloways has moved in right next door to her house in upstate New York.


Yes. That precise breed, just around
the corner from her country house.

UD‘s sister-in-law, Joanna,
is staying there now, and sends this
picture of her and the cows.

Let me just say again how unnerving I
find it that those particular cows of
all cows materialized on that particular
patch of earth…

    I’m not up there, so I don’t know about the flies. They’re usually not that bad in August.

  4. theprofessor Says:

    Are these cows looked down upon by their fellow cows for not being woke?

  5. Margaret Soltan Says:

    tp: LOL. Have to say, I’m very late on the meanings of “woke” and must wake up and learn them.
