Save a horse, ride a ....cow?
For the last week Sophie, Pépe and I have been exchanging emails every couple of days. I have shared with them my 'GREEN' fetish and a few odd 'get to know you' facts. One of mine was that I have always wanted to ride a cow. Dumb, I know - why not ride a horse? Well, the simple fact is that everyone rides a horse and I have always been one that goes against the crowd - so I want to ride a cow.
It just so happens to be that I live in an area that has BY FAR, many more cows than people, yet I haven't ever ridden one. Yet. I shared this desire with S&P and Pépe shared with me that while has already ridden a horse (in Ireland), camels (in Marocco) and an elephant (in Thailand) he has not ridden a cow either.
Looks like we have a way to bond! Anyone want to invite us to their farm in mid-June so we can attempt to ride your cows? ....and for those of you that don't know the area - we have cows, lots of them but they are mostly dairy cows which means they aren't very comfy for riding.
Sophie and I have discovered a mutual *love* of cheesecake and Pépe and I both enjoy a good hamburger. Although with as much as he admits he can eat at Ruby's, he has me beat. I can see my husband and him eating about the same - which would include a burger, fries, onion rings and of course a YUMMY dessert. I think I'll put on enough weight with another pregnancy so I should probably take it easy on the over indulgence. ...the cheesecake though, is a different story!
