There is something to be said for country living and your blood pressure. There is absolutely no rushing around here even if you want to rush. You can only travel as fast as the cows and mind you, cows aren’t particularly concerned with speed. This morning I figured that I would “quickly” run down to the post office to drop off and pick up the mail. I was set on getting back and getting to work. Well as I turned the corner coming up my road, there were the cows. Well, to be a bit more precise, it was actually something akin to a parade of sorts, the cows (a whole lot of them), four kids, one bike, three dogs, one puppy, two men walking and one truck driving. All this to move some cows uphill into the pasture. And let me tell you, the cows move as fast as the cows want to move and not one bit faster. So needless to say, no matter what you have to do, phone calls, a meeting, an emergency, whatever it may be…you are only moving as fast as the cows. Who needs fancy blood pressure medication? All you need are some cows.
