Wow! I don’t check in for a few days and look what happens! Steve, if you’re still checking comments, I hope you have a fruitful hiatus and 2 Cows and a Chicken will be back soon! It is one of my favorites, right up there with Bloom County. Like many others I would enjoy seeing re-runs from the beginning. I wish you all the best! And the best, of course, would be seeing 2 Cs and a C back soon in all new adventures!
The animation is fun. Keep it up!
Thank you, Miserichord. It was almost impossible for me to read the original.
MrGromit - when a Mac computer is “thinking” the cursor becomes a spinning colored beach ball, and it doesn’t always end well.
They’re “cute” Narwahl whales.
The comment from aircraft-engineer piqued my curiosity so I went to the U.S. Treasury web site and searched for “legal tender” and saw this:
Legal Tender Status
I thought that United States currency was legal tender for all debts. Some businesses or governmental agencies say that they will only accept checks, money orders or credit cards as payment, and others will only accept currency notes in denominations of $20 or smaller. Isn’t this illegal?
The pertinent portion of law that applies to your question is the Coinage Act of 1965, specifically Section 31 U.S.C. 5103, entitled “Legal tender,” which states: “United States coins and currency (including Federal reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal reserve banks and national banks) are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues.”
This statute means that all United States money as identified above are a valid and legal offer of payment for debts when tendered to a creditor. There is, however, no Federal statute mandating that a private business, a person or an organization must accept currency or coins as for payment for goods and/or services. Private businesses are free to develop their own policies on whether or not to accept cash unless there is a State law which says otherwise. For example, a bus line may prohibit payment of fares in pennies or dollar bills. In addition, movie theaters, convenience stores and gas stations may refuse to accept large denomination currency (usually notes above $20) as a matter of policy.
