My son is either blind as a bat or a certified city boy. I'm thinking the latter, but maybe we'd better get his eyes checked. We were visiting his great-grandmother this weekend, as I mentioned below, and were standing in the yard. At a distance, across the street were some horse in a paddock. My son looked up and yelled, "Hey look! Cows!" Hmmm...


I think you might do the eye thing, too, but I do recall a long time ago going to the state fair in Birmingham with my sister and her husband, and as we toured the livestock pavilion, he said, "Look at those horses! They've got ears like mules!"

"Those ARE mules, dunce."

That is funny! Of course, if Jay called a cow a horse (or vice versa), I think we'd have to cut him some slack at this point. Same goes for Bea ;) I mean, I'd be excited if the boy could SAY "cow"!
