Simpatico: When the Cows Start Helping the Kentucky Utilities Man, You Know You're In Trouble...


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

When the Cows Start Helping the Kentucky Utilities Man, You Know You're In Trouble...

Yeah, it's been that kinda week folks.  Power outages, temperatures over 104F, cable (ie internet) outages, drooping plants, drooping spirits... and, as you know, living in the pseudo-country, that my cellphone doesn't always see eye to eye with the towers so posting, let alone commenting, doesn't happen easily.  So I sat back, watched whatever I could watch on TV (cause apparently the cable part works but not the phone and internet when we have problems....) and read A. LOT. of books.  :)

But then, finally, we had rain. Which then set off another round of power and cable outages.  But once the cows across the street started helping, then everything began working properly.

Whodathunk, eh? 

So right now I'm scratching off every instance of beef 'it's whats for dinner' off my menu and substituting chicken.  Cause I'm figuring out that the Chik-fil-a advertising isn't just for marketing their wonderful chicken sandwiches, but cows are brilliant and gifted electricians.

So now you are sayin that you think that these COWS have SPARKED a new interest in CHICKEN???

I just about peed on my chair when I saw your comment to Puddles about VERMOUTH WHITE.. So I though I should add... White Lightning in a Mason Jar to the list.

We didn't get ANY rain.. butt that WIND was surely somethingy. Glad we had a generator to get us through the 3 day outage that WE had.. there are STILL some up here that don't have power... SEND COWS!!!!

We have been reading about the heatwaves and man, do I sympathise. the first two summers after I arrived 'Down Under' from cold Ireland, the temperatures were regularly over 104F and we went 5 months without rain in 2009 and it was HORRIBLE. But, on the plus side, reading is about the best thing to do ever and those cows look like they know their business. I always knew cows were a lot smarter than two legged ones give them credit for!!!

I hope life gets back to normal very soon!!
