Give them books, send them to school, and they still act like idiots.

 Since I still have a lot of trouble walking with this arthritis, I spend a lot of time on the computer. I can't say I don't walk at all since I was up on the hill behind the house yesterday putting hooks in the fence. The hooks are for the climbing setup I got for trimming the bushes come Fall. I got a harness and a length of rope with a carabiner on the end to clip to the harness. Keeps an old geezer such as myself from falling down the hill and rolling over the decorator rocks on the bottom.

Back to the title of this post. 

In wandering around the web, I continue to see (even thought I posted on July 29th) people taking selfies with the fluffy cows. Makes one wonder what is in the space between their ears?

Here, have a look:

This one might be photo shopped.

OK, you get the picture. Hey let's take a photo with the 2000 lb. wild animal with horns who thinks nothing of running your ass over or giving you an couple extra holes in your body. And yet, they continue. 

The first one is the stupidest. I counted no less than 10 photos of her. 

Here's something you might like. You can get this on Etsy.


Or you can get this one on EBay:

A while ago I was at the hospital getting an MRI on my hard German head and I mentioned to the Tech that I was allergic to nuts, idiots, and stupid people. He was about to give me some peanut butter crackers to hold me over between images. He panicked because all he heard was allergic to nuts. I cleared up the comment for him. 

So you'll be pleased to know that I'll never be posting a selfie with the fluffy cows. 

By the way, for all you that call this animal a Buffalo, it's actually an American Bison. The word buffalo is derived from the French “bœuf,” a name given to bison when French fur trappers working in the US in the early 1600s saw the animals. The word bœuf came from what the French knew as true buffalo, animals living in Africa and Asia.

Early Americans called them Tatanka, but if you saw the movie "Dances With Wolves" you already know that. iinniiwa in Blackfoot, tatanka is Lakota, ivanbito in Navajo, Kuts in Paiute. 

OK enough about idiots. 

Ya'll stay safe. Covid is on the rise. My Daughter-in-Law just got over it.
