Re: Re:Humour : that's not so funny.

     Well, now that the subject of cattle in the garden has come up...    In 
late summer of 1978, I took a little used but very straight side road 
[Montgomery County, KY] to get around some very slow traffic.  This was a 
good time to blow carbon buildup out of the car too.  Well, it figures, a cow 
came out in the road.  I screeched to a halt, and it stood there and watched 
me.  Then, before moving, it went "moo"...  One fellow I know saw this event.
     Some years later, while on the way to George Slade's Iris Garden north 
of Cynthiana, KY, I came over a hill on the road, and doggone it, there stood 
a cow in the road.  The same guy was right behind me, and when we ended up in 
the same Agronomy Class, I heard "moo" all semester.
     Well, last year, I was on my way to a nursery near Newberry, FL.  While 
heading north up US 41, between Archer and Newberry, I am cruising along at 
60-65 MPH when up ahead, out comes a big Black Angus right into the road.  I 
go for the breaks, and the darn thing stands there and watches me come to a 
stop.  "Moo" and it walks off.  Behind me is a pickup truck.  I pull into a 
BP Station in Newberry to get gas, in come the pickup truck.  The driver gets 
out, and..."moo"...  
     If only those Louisiana Irises at the nursery had been named...
