|Cute Bumper Sticker; As I was walking through the parking lot to go into Walmart today, I noticed this really cute, petite, young lady, who looked to be in her late teens or early 20's, with short dark auburn hair, and who looked like she knew what farm life was like (and like she could probably handle most farm animals whether they were the 2 legged variety or the 4 legged variety), coming out to get into her little bright blue car with several animal feed stickers, farm products and equipment stickers, tractor name stickers, and other farm related types of bumper stickers on it. |
As she backed out of her parking slot just ahead of me I noticed a slightly faded bumper sticker on her back window. At first it was kinda hard for me to make out the words in the bright sunlight, so I had to squint a little to be able to read the words, which once I'd read them naturally made sense to me since I'd been raised on a farm and could still remember the good old days fondly, even the ripe aromatic smell of cow pies that I'd accidently stepped in more than once while chasing some of the same species on foot.
The bumper sticker words were 'A GOOD COWGIRL ALWAYS KEEPS HER CALVES TOGETHER'. I thought, 'Now, that sure makes good sense since it makes it whole lot easier to work with them for shots and other treatments that are part and parcel of farm life with cows and calves, plus you can give all of them the same shots on the same day'. However, after she drove off and I had a few steps to think more about it, I just cracked up laughing. I got the distinct feeling that she was not referring to the 4 legged calves.
