City girl

On my way to New York! Flying out of Indianapolis, faster and easier
than Chicago. Great new terminal here, a pleasure to use. But this t-
shirt in an airport store reminds me that Indy is not NY. At a recent
Linus worknight I got called "city girl" when I couldn't identify
( and didn't own!) any of the cows in a farm animal fabric.

LOL...My cousins always said that I lived "in the city." I thought they were crazy. I lived in a small town. However they lived in the country (dirt roads and all!) and had a farm. I think it is all relative. (I might be able to name a couple of the cow breeds if I saw the fabric)

Oh my ... I don't understand the T-shirt at all. Have I totally fallen over the cliff of "Senior Citizenship"???

I was raised on a farm and lived on one until my youngest was in grade one, so about 35 years of my life. Cows do not tip -- but this is still funny, mostly for city folks, which I now am. But unlike a cow, a horse does sleep standing up... mmm, horse tipping?

Love it! Nice take-off on the John Deere ads. I know 3 kinds of cows - black, black & white, and tan!

Well, there are cities and then there is New York. Something altogether different.

COWS?!! You mean milk doesn't come from a store? And beef from plastic wrap? Oops!

Nora Jones has a very funny song about cow tipping on one of her albums. I love cows--from a distance--I thank them for the yogurt and milk on my cereal--
