Cow and Boy Classics by Mark Leiknes for June 25, 2006
"Man, that pond water really makes me look old." "Maybe it's because I am getting old. I'm almost eight, for crying out loud. That's like mid-life for a cow." "Half of my life is over and what have I done with it? Nothing. I haven't achieved any of the goals I set for myself. All I've done is just graze and hang out with a farm kid." "Be patient. Life's not a sprint, it's a marathon. There's still time to do something with it besides just this. But come to think of it, I kind of like doing just this." "Maybe this is enough. Maybe life isn't about achieving goals or accomplishing things. Maybe it's just about being there for someone else and making that person happy." "You OK, Cow?" "Yeah, Billy, I think I'm gonna be just fine." "Wow, the pond really makes you look old."
