The "Moo Cow Moo"

@ 2004/08/25


I found a hollow plastic cow at a monthly flea market at a Wal-Mart Parking lot in Wiesbaden, Germany. I thought it would be perfect for a Mini-ITX based computer. I grew up on a dairy farm in NY so I know a lot about cows. It was about a half hour into walking around the flea market. I looked at it and thought about it for 5 minutes. I bought it and had walk around the rest of the market. I carried the cow around the rest of the flea market for 2 hours. This was the third time I bought something heavy or awkward and had to carry it a long way to get to the car or home, when will I ever learn. It was not heavy but it was a bit awkward walking around the packed parking lot of Wal-Mart having all these German people go Moo or say something that I did not quite understand. I took 3 years of German in high school over 15 years ago. I do not remember much of it but I know bits and pieces.

If you herd cows you know the phrase "till the cows come home", well, this cow is always home from now on.
