Makes a Nebraskan feel right at home…

My parents are visiting Mexico this week from Nebraska. To help them adjust, we found this slowly-moving cow herd on the road outside our B&B in Malinalco. Mexico can always be counted upon for the random herd of livestock to help make a Nebraska farm boy feel like he never left…

To tie back in to my previous post, this was pretty much the most danger we came across during our trip to Malinalco, Mexico. Who knows-- these cows could well have been drug mules in disguise... making off with pounds of cocaine in their multiple stomachs...???

This was my favorite artsy-livestock photo. Pretty purple flowers + soft brown cow in the sunlight, casting a suspicious eye towards the carload of gringos infringing on her territory...

I’m pretty sure rural Nebraska is the last place that the gentleman on the horse would have guessed that I was from, with the rear window of our Maxima rolled down like a moron so I could get the optimal angle/number of cow photos possible…

    Sorry our paths didn’t cross! My crappy telcel toy phone didn’t send me your mensaje until Lunes. Sigh. Hope you had a lovely time. :-)

    Why get an MBA when your gift with the written word could carry you for the rest of your life? Hope all is going well.

    I read the title of your post, saw the first picture and immediately thought you were going to imply that the background scenery resembled Chimney Rock. Of course, after all my years in Nebraska, I’ve never been to Chimney Rock, so it might not be as good a symbol of the state as our past license plates might suggest.

    Also, I agree with this Mike guy, I’d pay good money for Julie Herickhoff writing.
