Are You Lookin' at Me?

Yup...he's as bright as that! I love painting cows...must find some more models.
So the story goes...our neighbors raised two cows several years ago. Our daughter Sadie, who was about 7 at the time, loved those cows. She named them Chocolate and Cocoa, visited them frequently in their field, fed them hay and just generally adored them. One day they went missing, so to speak. And a few weeks later our neighbor came to the door generously offering a bag of freshly ground beef. I couldn't bring myself to tell Sadie who was in the bag, nor could I eat the burgers. Luckily we have a vegetarian in the family who was making veggie burgers that night. She offered one to anyone who wanted. I quickly volunteered...and much to my relief, so did Sadie! Though, throughout the entire meal, our son, who was in on the 'secret' kept licking his lips, smacking loudly  and proclaiming repeatedly, "These are the BEST hamburgers I've EVER eaten!" Ha!
