dddragon Visits the Farm Show

Last night Nod and I decided that we just had to go to the Farm Show. The Kids couldn't go because of their schoolwork this week. So we went without them. Wow. But don't worry, we weren't gone long and we brought home fresh Potato Donuts for them.

Here I am with that butter sculpture that was featured earlier. It's in a large glass, refridergated case.


Here is an old truck with an attractive arrangement of produce around it. Nod just had to take a photo of it.


There are a lot of cows. By this time they were mostly laying down. We overheard someone ask about cud-chewing. Apparently, a cow will chew an average of 40 times before swallowing, then regurgitate to start chewing again. So the farmer girl was counting her cow's chews. Of course, the contrary cow chewed 60 times before swallowing. By that time a small crowd had gathered and we all had a good laugh about how a watched cow will not swallow cud.

But will a watched cow ever boil? Or is that a different saying....?

WAIT one cotton-pickin' moment, 3D: Your girls are old enough, studious enough, and responsible enough to be home a couple hours by themselves, and you--go watch cows chew?????
I'm glad you had a good time-- really. You don't get out enough, and you enjoy a great time!

I can not believe that is a butter sculpture, I'm going to have to go to the post below and find out if you talked about it. How long does it take someone to do a sculpture so elaborate? And what do they do with that afterwards, these are the questions I wanna know.

EWWWWWWWWWWW regurgitates then chews again??? Blech and a half! *shudder*

And I'm with Still Life, what is that butter sculpture supposed to represent? It looks like 2 dudes ripping off a shoe closet - the horror!

Man, I miss farm shows. Does John Deere have any cool new combines out this year? The butter sculpture is awesome!

Cows lie down. Hens lay eggs. Just sayin'. Your mother notices sh*t like that.

LOL on Acton Bell's comment. So true.

Yes, actonbell made me laugh too! I howeve, being a chewing addict, was fascinated by the number of chews.... the regurgitating however, that is another story!

By chew addict I mean I need to eat in peace and quiet and really chew my food. I cannot, will not scarf it down. Nope. I won't. I said I WON'T...

Just to clarify I did not mean chaw...

*dizzy, the bohemian walks away*
