sundaygotomeetin'

Went to Bonnie Cain's Big Bend Tabernacle for church this morning.  Turns out she's a pretty good preacher.  Got a chance to meet a bunch of the Cain clan.  They put on a nice feed after the service.  Walked away with something to think about, a fine to-go package that will feed me for 2 more days, and a new official longhorn mascot.  Dick gave me Old Brown Cow today - she's 15 years old.  Drove a mile out to find her to give her a snack and tell her the news.  91,100,66,0,B,0

Congratulations to both you and Old Brown Cow. I'd say it's a win-win situation!

Old Brown Cow is one lucky cow !!!!

Surely your going to give her a name more befitting a lady of her proud lineage.

Congratulations on the new Field Lab mascot.

Benita will always be #1 in many hearts, including mine, but OBC (perhaps O' Bessie) will be a great #2.

Glad you made it to church and that you got another long horn. She is a proud looking Lady for sure.

that's almost a 2-fer deal since Senora Halderson and OBC are so bonded. congrats. Mr. Cain is a very generous man.

Awwww jeeez, I was kinda hoping TFL would get a "puppy" so we wouldn't have to go through the trauma all over again so soon in a few years. I was secretly rooting for the little sweetheart with the valentine stamped on its forehead from last September, to be honest.

But I guess it is more fitting to let these older 'horns enjoy a cushy retirement at TFL Resort only after they've dedicated the best years of their lives to harsh desert service - as long as Carl doesn't have any reason to object, that is.

One thing is certain, though: that Mr. Cain is a big sweetheart with an invisible valentine stamped on his forehead.

I don't suppose there's any way to staple one of those GPS transmitters onto OBC's ear so she can be tracked on a map?

Congrats on OBC, John! We're really happy for you. I'm sure she was excited to hear that news!!

A good day for you. I'd like to have been at that service. You got another great, iconic longhorn photo.
