Partying until the Cow Comes Home

Remember back in February when I posted my story "Mad Cow"?

Oh you don't? Well, the short version is my dad had the cow that got loose and ran halfway across the county. There really was much more to it than that. If you have the time, read the previous post. Many people thought the whole thing was made up. No. It really did happen. You can't make this stuff up.
Well, we've had a lot of fun sharing that story. Lots of jokes going around about mad cows and bovine "out on the lamb". I even found a wonderful birthday card for my dad saying "The cows aren't coming home...party on." (The front of the card showed a woman holding a frozen steak.) Dad, who was not amused by the situation at first, has even gotten into the swing of things. Now he tells everyone that he's raising "free range" beef.

Anyway, last week I receive a email from a dear friend who was waxing poetic:


He gave us laughter

He gave us grief

But worst of all

He gave no beef!

No one has seen the missing cow since March or so....that is until tonight. A neighbor thinks they saw her in their back yard. Sounds like the cow is trying to come home. Party's over.
