STAMPEDE!! (And Other Stuff)

Funny thing happened while we were in Michigan.  The RV park where we were staying was right next to an Equestrian Club, so we were accustomed to hearing horses whinny occasionally.  But one morning Bill and I looked at each other and said, "Did you just hear a cow moo?"  We looked out the front window of our motorhome and here's what we saw!

A whole herd of cows was headed straight for the pond in front of our RV!  They watered for a minute then turned around and some headed back home. 
One little guy stopped to nibble at a little tree right by our rig before ambling off!

Some of them headed for the highway, so I encouraged Bill to use his "cow wranglin'" experience (he grew up on a farm with cows) so off he and another guy went to round up the errant cows successfully.  Should have had a pic of him waving his arms and yelling "HEEYAH!!" at the cows! 

Needless to say, it was a very exciting morning!

Also wanted to tell you--  I had a couple of nice surprises while we were gone.  Went to an Arts and Crafts show and a vendor there was selling aprons she'd made out of my Hydrangea fabric!  She used rickrack (which I LOVED, of course) and they were SO cute! 

A few days later we were at an Antique & Craft Mall and saw these made out of some Rise N Shine fabric!  Again, so CUTE and I loved that they had made little girls aprons, too!

I was a real treat to see these!  So that's it for now, kids.  Blessings~
