Another one of my favorite Christmas gifts has been these adorable salt and pepper shakers, given me by another favorite cousin and his wife. They have magnetic snouts (I don't think they're called snouts), so they kiss. But someone in my household - some bored someone - has taken to posing the kissing cows when I'm not looking.
You'll see here that they are begging for a cup of java, because, contrary to popular opinion, cows are not big fans of milk. And buttermilk has to come from someplace. It's the older, grizzled cows, standing out in the field, sipping their cuppa joe, gossiping and swatting flies.
I wasn't aware that cows liked chili, seeing as they're part of the dish, and maybe they don't, but they sure want some off those Fritos I bought to serve with the chili. Silly cows. Fritos and coffee aren't good together.
I'll catch the culprit who's been posing my cows. We'll have a good laugh. Then I'll send him to bed with no java and Fritos. That'll teach him.
Until I write again ...
