Old Blue Eyes

I think it's probably safe to say that only in Wisconsin would you find this in front of a shoe store:

Be afraid, be very afraid.

Hypnotic bovine aside, it was a most excellent shoe store and I bought THREE PAIRS of shoes there. If you know me, you know I am not a shoe-a-holic and I don't know if I have ever in my life bought three pairs of shoes all at the same time. Part of that stems from the difficulty I have finding shoes to fit my large feet.

Here is a shot of my friend Phyllis, at one with the bovine. The guy who owns the shoe store is also a big-time sports fan, which is why the freakish cow is also sporting a baseball cap!

"Step away from the udder, ma'am!"

If you would like to see some truly freakish cow attractions, visit:

Intersesting, isn't it, how many of them are in Wisconsin? I clearly did not try hard enough to seek out freakish cow attractions on my trip through America's Dairyland.

The way I've learned to deal with my cowaphobia is to think of them as carpaccio on the hoof. Rather like nervous public speakers who picture their audience naked, I picture the cow thinly sliced and dressed with slivers of garlic with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
