COWS!!!!!!!

Yesterday I decorated my front porch for Fall. I was pretty proud of myself! It looked great. Pumpkins, mums, Indian corn, a couple of scarecrows, and a few bales of hay. So, even though the INSIDE of my house was a mess, at least the outside was looking pretty spiffy. What did I forget? Oh, I forgot that the fence to my yard is down, and so my 6 cows have the run of the place, including the yard, and (apparently), including the front porch! Take a look at what they did to my festive Fall porch!Note the scarecrow, face down in the yard. Note the hay that is strewn EVERYWHERE. Note the overturned mums (that are also chewed.) Note the half-a-bale of hay that is drug into the yard. You can't see it, but look hard for the cow poop that is EVERYWHERE on the porch. Mind you, these lovely cows have 35 acres to roam and enjoy, but they choose to sleep in the yard every night. This does it... the fencing guys are getting a call TODAY!!! I need to reclaim my porch!! Luke laughed at me and said, "What do you expect? They are cows! They eat hay!" All he got in response was one of "those looks." Curse those cows... (I'll try and post some photos of these lovely "pet" cows at another time.) Now comes the clean up...

Believe Me! I know your pain. So sorry :) Hopefully you can get your fence put back up and have a cute porch maybe around CHRISTMAS time! Just kidding. Have a great weekend.
