Penny Black Saturday Challenge 7

Another week of feasting my eyes on all your fab creations featuring snow....well done everyone....and I can't believe it's time for the next challenge.....where does the week go.
The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday "DOWN ON THE FARM" featuring something you would find down on the farm...well I chose a "MOO" cow...a name that my children used to use and it's sort of stuck.
I love COWS...they have such gorgeous big soft eyes and eyelashes that any girl would die for... I love the way that they can lick their noses with their big slubbery need for tissues there then ..just a pity they don't have the same self cleaning mechanism for the other end. Did you know that our loony government is debating at the moment how best to solve a rather delicate problem....well apparently all these cows releasing gas into the atmosphere (or farting to you and me) is affecting the ozone layer.....PLEEEEASE.... GIMME A BREAK......haven't you anything better to do with your time....whatever forced to have Porta Coo Loos in their fields or cows wearing Pampers... I am often stopped in my car by a herd of cows ambling back to their field after milking hurrying these girls ...they are coming through regardless and they are certainly no respecters of wing mirrors...they love to be up close and personal with the car and if perchance you happen to have the window open you are liable to get a big smackaroonie of a lick from a gorgeous bovine.....well I don't have any issues with your gas emissions our bard Rabbie Burns said "LET WIND BE FREE WHERE ERE YE BE". They haven't thought of taxing that yet but watch this space.....the nanny state brigade are probably working on it as we speak!!! Have a great weekend folks.....Kath xxxxxx

  13. Hi Kath - something else to make the cabinet buckle - lol

  14. I love these cows, too, and my entry will be one. It has a Scottish twist, and it would have been great if Penny Black did a heilan' coo, but I don't think they do, sadly. Och, well.

    Will post it on my bloggy thing tomorrow.

  16. That card is too cute. I love the message on it.

  17. what a lovely card Kath and i agree about just letting your wind blow free!

  18. Oh I do so love this card Kath xxx Love the old moos on it as well lolxx

    Now, about this ridiculousness re the farting cows - let's not beat about the bush. Perhaps they should try corks - and also on the cows lol xxx!! It is absurd and I do think sometimes they have too much flippin time on their hands. No matter that there are still children living in poverty in this country and the economy is up to its eyes in all sorts of trouble. Nooo, lets all ignore that and concentrate on the over enthusiastic methane production of the cow population!! Oh I am on a rant now lolxx And have you heard the latest batch of (I will be polite) detritus? They are trying to ban the Red Arrows from doing a flying display at the 2012 Olympics. The reason??? Cos they are too British!!!!!!!!!! Word fail me and I am going for a lie down in a dark room now lol xx

    Hope you are having a fab weekend xxxxx
