Cows and creativity

Life in the countryside, Take One

8:01 am   Staff member:  Sir, I need to take a vacation day today. (concern in voice)  Me:  What happened?  Staff member:  I have four cows, and last night none of them came home.  I have to go up the mountain to find them.

Life in the countryside, Take Two

Driving down a muddy rural road in the rain, we approach a 50-year old truck coming the other way.  It is loaded down with firewood.  Standing on either side of the cab are two men holding onto the side mirrors.  As we come closer, we notice that the one next to the driver is manually moving the windshield wiper back and forth so the driver can see.  Despite the cold and rain, he is doing it with a big smile on his face.  All of us are laughing as we drive by and wave.
