I forgot last week to add a fence 'post' to my blog [pun intended]...so I will begin with that from the get-go. These photos were taken last March while I was walking in Bazemore Park in Calallen, Texas. The Brindle hide of the heifer caught my eye --

A man staggers into the emergency room with a concussion, multiple bruises, and a five iron wrapped around his neck. Naturally the doctor asks him what happened.
"Well, it was like this" said the man.
"I was having a quiet round of golf with my wife, when at a difficult hole, we both sliced our balls into a pasture of cows. We went to look for them, and while I was rooting around I noticed that one of the cows had something white in it's rear end. I walked over and lifted up the tail, and sure enough, there was a golf ball with my wife's monogram on it stuck right in the middle of the cow's butt. That's when I made my mistake."
"What did you do?", asked the doctor.
The husband answered the doctor's question..."Well, I lifted the tail, pointed, and yelled to my wife, Hey! This looks like yours!"

After I sketched and published the results of the Northern Gannet the past weekend, I kept my pad on the desk, and started a 2nd bird sketch. Tho, it's still sitting on the desk, untouched after I did the first outlining, I will pick it up again soon. In the meantime, I got a bit sidetracked and went through my folders to clean them out. I found more from my days when I was stuck indoors; having fun with Super Photo. Before deleting them, I will share:

A lady from the city and her traveling companion were riding the train through Vermont when she noticed some cows.
"What a cute bunch of cows!" she remarked.
"Not a bunch, herd", her friend replied.
"Heard of what?"
"Herd of cows." her companion replied.
"Of course I've heard of cows" she exclaimed.
"No", said her travel companion, "a cow herd."
"What do I care what a cow heard. I have no secrets to keep from a cow!"
