Orange Co.-- I had arrived to inspect damage to a barn roof. I was told by the matronly insured that the damage was on the pasture side of the barn and I needed to watch out for the "horny cows." While most of my experience with bovines usual involved a bottle of A-1 steak sauce this was not my first encounter with cows. However it was to be my first experience with "horny cows." (Start humming the theme to "Jaws" here) As I crossed under the fence I noticed that 1) these were in fact horny cows and 2) they all seemed to be staring at me. Then as I took a few steps forward to try and get a look at the barn roof the "horny cows" took a few steps towards me. As I took a step the horny cows took a step and in about five more steps we were going to be up close and personal. I began to get this feeling that I would be really pressing my luck if I turner my back on a bunch of "horny cows" (Again her words not mine). So I decided to walk backwards, back under the fence, and took my photos from inside the barn. Sorry boss.
Ladies if I may have a moment alone with the guys.............Picture this--Laid back with your feet up on your barber's chair with remote in hand and the big plasma screen in front of you. A brief turn in the chair and there is a small refrigerator within easy reach filled with (insert preferred beer here. If your thinking either wine or soda please leave the room.). You place the cold one on a small metal dentist table attached to one arm of the chair. On a similar table on the other arm sits your munchies of choice........
Don't See This Everyday
Madison County off Rt. 522--This area had some serious brush fires recently. This is actually a house not too far behind me. It was saved when a fire department tanker truck got stuck at the back of the house. The owner and his son continued to operate it till it ran out of water. No damage to the house.
