Surprises on a Sunday Afternoon

So, we're sitting on the back deck talking about when to start a fire to grill some nice salmon that's been marinating in teriyaki (Soy Veh brand, readily available at your local Trader Joe's), and the doorbell rings.  Neither of us is expecting anyone until sometime later in the evening when good friend Sharon is coming to stay for the better part of the week.

So all three of us go to the door, with Blackberry leading the way, and it is Nettie!  She was a participant in the Bonnie Hunter Workshop we held a couple of months ago, and she was on her way to visit her daughter and thought she'd just stop by to deliver some cows.  I'm so glad she did!

Just look at them -- close up, please!  Aren't they just terrific?

And then the phone rang.  It was Turbo, calling to say she'd just been propositioned by a midget.

You just never know, do you?

Only thing better than surprise cows is turquoise and red surprise cows, I always say.

Those are the coolest cows ever.

...and the phone call...well, you don't ever know, do you? I love Sunday afternoons. They tend to bring interesting things...
