Weekly Photo Challenge: Fun


Fun is small word but with all kinds of opportunities. I like cows. This could probably be traced back to my childhood summers spent on my grandparents’ small dairy farm.

On our trip to the Benelux Countries last year, I ran across these beauties. Each one made me smile and grab my camera.

I probably won’t see any cows this weekend, but I’ll find something fun to do. It won’t be gardening in these ‘heat index’ days of over 100°, and I finished my wall hanging, but there are always new projects to start as long as I have a stash of fabric.

Have a good weekend – smile, laugh, tip a cold one, and have some fun your style. 🙂

  5. I especially like the floral/paisley cow 🙂 We’re not going out much in this weather either, not unless we have to. Hard to breathe out there.

    Great shots, Judy. I love cows, too. You’ll get this – I love the smell of new calves. Like puppies and babies, they have a sweet smell and they are cute as all get out! 🙂

    I love these 🙂
    I usta have stickers with assorted patterned cows, and they were among my faves. I’d always put them on letters to The Mister’s grandparents. His grandpa asked me about it once, said he’d never seen such a thing, asked if they were Indian or somethin. I told him that’s what city cows look like. 😉 Good memory.

    I like cows, too, and probably for the same reason, having known many, up close and personal. Your photos show some especially handsome ones. (I had to look up Benelux so I learned something new!)

    I love looking at these guys. I remember going to New York with my daughter for the Cow Parade and walking all over the city to find them. She had an instructor who had painted two. We found one easily, but the other was in the infirmary to have some damage repaired.

    I love the creative efforts of this project, Judy!
    My favorite was the sweet little calf in its Dutch pattern.
    We had “fancy painted” rain barrels this year in our town but usually we have an auction on decorated horses! Our town is “home” for one part of the triple crown of harness racing every September. The horses are purchased by highest bidder. Even our teams are called the Pavers. 🙂 I love art and the humor in some of it, as you probably guessed.

    Love these! Love cows too. They have such big sweet eyes and calves really are the best. Wish they could stay little. When I was little my Dad had me convinced that chocolate milk came from brown cows. Good memories.

    • Love that story. I was convinced milk came from the store because it did during the school year and not the cows in the barn. So when I was real little my grandfather would leave a bottle of milk on the porch and that was my special store delivered milk. 🙂


  22. Great fun pictures! I’m scared of cows because of their size and unpredictability! But seeing those in your pictures made me smile

    I agree with Ogee! The posts are popcorn, and one leads to another. You are so right that “fun” may be a small word but it leads to big things. Thank you!

    LOVE the cows! Our city had art competitions like this a few years back – one year it was cows and another, fish. So much fun to see something out of the ordinary. The creativity of each artist is commendable!
