The cow and the blanket

When I was a little girl, way way way back, my aunt used to tell me a bedtime story about a cow. This cow lived in a paddock just as other cows but This cow was not an ordinary cow. She liked to paint her toenails and longed to go to the salon to get her hair done.

One day she decided she had to get a warm, nice soft blanket. She wanted a pink one. (it might be a coincidence, but at the time that story was told to me, I had pink blankets!). Anyway, one day the cow walked to town and marvelled about all the nice things you could buy there. She even decided to go to a lunchroom to get a nice glas of 'chocomelk'. It might be again a total coincidence that I drank gallons of that stuff when I was a kid.

So, the cow got her nice, soft, pink blanky in the end and this story, when I think about it, still makes me smile and takes me back to those nights with my aunt. It inspired me to make the pictures below. Enjoy.

As you can see the cows are protected so the internet wont be invaded by my cows. If you feel you just have to have a picture, contact and me please and maybe you can convince me to remove the ugly layer.
