Ewwww de Toilet

How did that get there?

Just another day at the office—moo-ving between cows and grandkids and magazines and books—this lovely little, well, er, frienddeviantsmearing, smattering snuck its way onto my shoulder.

It whispered into my nostrils and those passing by me enjoyed its pungent pining.


Until luckily for all, it was sniffed out and properly IDed by Ace who pointed to it saying, “That’s downright purdy” (spoken with a T).”

    I’ve been birdie baptized a few times but have yet to receive a cow Christening.

    Gives new meaning to the phrase, “Taking your work home with you” 🙂

  2. Laurie Dimno says:

    I too have been “christened” with a birds love. I’ve been told it brings you good luck….hmmm…. . Heck, you sure were a good sport to let them photograph you smiling through it all! You wear it well Mary Jane- nothing can take away from your inner beauty! You have to laugh at the little things!
    Hugs to you!

    Just another day at the farm, eh? You’re a good sport to let them take a picture. I’m surprised one of the grandgirls didn’t spot it; mine would have & made a B-I-G deal of it!

    This reminds me of the time a co-worker came back from lunch and complained about how bad the office smelled. No one else noticed anything unusual. And, then, a few hours later, she noticed the big blob of tuna salad on her collar… Still makes me laugh!

  5. CJ Armstrong says:

    Well, you’re beautiful, Mary Jane! I know EXACTLY how that feels, smells and looks as I’ve been there, done that! Had cow tails swishing all about my head and face and have had them step in the bucket of milk too. Ewwwwwww . . . but that’s the life!

    I remember being hit by a birdie at an amusement park one time just as we walked through the front entrance. Fortunately the ladies room was just inside the park. It never did all come out of the shirt but it was shaped like a heart. My daughter said even though it was nasty it was kind of neat that it was shaped that way. Eww! I have had my share of jeans ruined by cow spatterings too. It’s the price you pay for loving to work with them though I would have to say in the end the payoff is worth it really.

    I love my spring facials. Green grass ahhhdoopooo. My husband tells me women pay big money for what I get for free and exercise.

  8. Betty J. says:

    I was birdie baptized when I was in the Navy. I was in boot camp in Maryland and we were marching in formation when: Oops, sniff, sniff, there was this blob on my tie. It was wretched and nowhere to go except keep on marching. When I got back to the barracks the tie immediately came off and was sent to the cleaners.

  9. MaryBeth says:

    Happening all the time on the farm. We have dogs, ducks, horses, kitties and goats and ourselves. I have been baptized many times. haha MB

  10. Sandi O'Connor says:

    Looking forward to NOT being “baptized” by my daughter’s flock while I birdsit them for a week! Any tips appreciated. She cuddles them so they love to pop atop a shoulder or head! I think I’m in for a surprise! Sandi P.S. MaryJane, you wear it well!

  11. Debbie says:

    I agree with CJ… your just as sparkling beautiful as ever or evah as they say here in the east!
    You look so happy even with that doodie on your shirt! 🙂

  12. Susan Laquintano says:

    I had a downright belly laugh when I read the post. I’m so sorry but it brought me back to some very fun times cleaning up after the horses. Thank you for that. I long for those times.

  13. Betty Thompson says:

    Rather than “cow love” I prefer the scent of horses. I can’t remember when I didn’t love horses, their tack smell, the stable smell .. to me that is what MY heaven would smell like. I have a friend, a city girl, who went with me to the stable one day and when I walked in, I took a deep breath and said “GREAT” and she said “what’s that stink”.

    Love to all, Betty
