Moo

I forgot to give K and her Mum a tour of the cow collection when they came by for coffee, so I decided to do a circuit of the house, recording the location and arrangement of the various Bovine-Themed Dairy-Product Containers. I thought it would be fun to snap a few shots and put together a Tabblo. I have taken ninety-seven photographs and I am not finished yet. I found one display cabinet with no visible cow presence, and three dedicated entirely to cows. There are brown cows and black cows and cows with no legs. Glossy black cows with gold horns, simple white cows with pretty blue flowers, Staffordshire cows with lids and bases, a tiny 50 ml disembodied head of a cow, one almost big enough to use as a teapot, and some with built-in milkmaids.

I am now upstairs, about to continue my photographic cowalog. Some day I want to make a complete album of the whole collection, as a coffee-table book.

Lovely to meet you both as well!

K - my dad has a file where he records where he bought each cow, it's called the Cowalog.

Glad you got home safely. K and I had such a nice time with you and your family on Sunday. Hope we can meet again before too long. I'm looking forward to the cowlection pictures!

I love your phrase "pathetic flop" to describe Cassie Cat's method of detaching herself from the fridge. It's spookily accurate. Have you been watching?
