Yep, been chased by cows when we were lil' kids and we were teasing them, all they wanted to do was munch on some grass. Boy did we learn how fast they can run that day.

Cows, unlike many four legged animals, can kick sideways.  I learned that lesson from when we milked our beautiful Candy girl.  She was a beautiful Jersey that got cow pocks.  Now try and milk a poor cow that is hurtin' so bad, she had to be milked, she probably would have blew up if we didn't and that would be rather messy.  I can't count the times I felt that poor girls wrath.  Beautiful day, beautiful life.  Cindi

The toughest milking job I ever had was milking a cow after it had gone through the fence into the woods in order to birth its calf.  The barbbed wire lascerated her teats and my Dad had to sew them up then slapped on the bag balm.  That cow went through the barn roof with every squeeze during hand milking.  I had to do it because my brother refused to milk any of Dads cows and Dad was busy milking the rest of the herd--I was 8.

Brian, oh that poor cow.  What terrible pain that must have been for her.  I can only imagine.  Candy did not have the pox on her teets, it was all over her udder though, deep painful pox.  But as you know, it is pretty hard to milk a cow without in some way her udder being involved.  Yes, we used bag balm, anything to try to alleviate her pain. The pox was gone after about 7 days, if my memory serves me, thank goodness for her and for me.  Beautiful day, great life.  Cindi

Well I did my part I sent my congressman and my county commissioners an email describing my plight with the TSA.

I got a response a few days ago.

Basic translation. We don't care we aren't going to do anything about it. Things will stay the same.



And please welcome Mr. Horne to the No Fly list.

Better not to joke about this!!.

 Anyway it was a nicely written letter, and they forwarded your concerns. So now we can see if there is any response to it.

It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


The TSA response is nicely written. However since nothing changes it means nothing. They will continue to steal and violate civil rights and deal with it by writing nice letters. Sorry the TSA can as Bender says "Bite my shiny, metal ass! "

Amtrak is nice  :-)  think of  how much of the country you'll really get to see!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I don't think we have Amtrak around these parts.

Good idea, much easier on my arachnophobia too, too bad I can't take a train to German to visit my son (Army) and daughter-in-law.
