True Manly Poet Rhapsodizes the Excremental . . .

Bovine Volcano
From the "Show Me" State?

Cousin Bill needs to turn his hand to poetry, given some of the imagery in his recent Weekly Rambling, a regular email that he circulates among kith and kin fifty-two times a year to keep us up to date on his captivating second career as a driver of used cars from their former owners to whatever agency will accept those sh*tty, secondhand things. Anyway, as I was trying to say, Bill's a natural poet, and that's no bullsh*t, as you can read for yourself in a description of early morning roadside scenes from his latest ramble, possibly through the 'State of Misery' after leaving Arkansas for Kansas:
I'm probably one of the few who sees beauty in awakening livestock. In pasture after pasture, Angus and Hereford were awakening, beginning their morning grazing . . . all belching steam front and rear, with newly dropped cow patties "smoking" like little volcanoes among the grasses.

That little pastoral image in Cousin Bill's simile is as 'purty as a pitcher' -- as we used to say back in the Ozarks -- or prettier, given the sh*t that's been pitched out in the picture above! Offered a choice, I'd take the poetry over the reality depicted there any day that it looks like that!

Thanks, Cousin Bill, for supplying blogworthy matter that -- as a former president might have said -- has 'manured' my thoughts for today's brief blogpost . . .

Well, I for one am (kinda) glad I went ahead and read Bill's text - or your's as the case might be.

I immediately saw what I took to be Cran's hairpiece.


(Oddly enough my "word verify thingy" is - hoozzest - no "?" mark though.)

Be thankful for Cousin Bill's text, which is far less 'sh*tty' than mine -- though maybe also less 'pun'.

Cuz Jeff, using Cuz Martha's IPhone, I'd best use caution with "comment". Where's Uncle Cran's mature manure response? Cuz Bill

Uncle Cran has been noticeable by his absence lately.
