Succinctly Yours - April 25

Welcome to my second entry for Succinctly Yours. Here’s the pic we were to tell our story about in 140 words or less. I have managed to work in the special Word of the Week as well. I hope you like it.

Word Of The Week: quaint

Maxine couldn't believe the attention her new Brazilian butt lift was getting. Even the most standoffish bull was cattlecalling from the other pasture. She was happy she hadn't listened to those other cows and spent her milk money on a new cow bell to match the quaint new earrings she was wearing. "Eat my cud!" she thought as she pretended not to notice the bulls' newfound interest.

Very cute post and great photo! The scenery (with the exception of the cow's butt) is breathtaking. My latest A-Z Challenge: http://myheartblogstoyou.blogspot.com/2011/04/under-pressure.html

Well, I guess even snakes and snails do it too--all us creatures. A Good 140 words. I was under impression it was 140 characters or less. Have to revise next week.

A GOOD second week, "farm-girl"! This is my first week.
CU!

I was laughing all the way through your story...sentence after sentence would start a new round of giggles. I'm still laughing inside my head. You could be a comedy writer for Jay Leno. Excellent SY!

Such fun! It's about time the cows had a turn to spend the milk money. :D

@Joyce - Thanks so much for visiting. I have sent you a message on FB about this and another thing. I appreciate your support.

@L.L.Woodward - All I saw when I first looked at the photo was the cow's two butt cheeks. I had to go with it.

@Susan - At first, I didn't notice the 140 characters, but then I couldn't reduced what came to mind on this one to just 140 characters. I think you'll like the next one, though. That one is most definitely succinct!

@Larry - thanks! You forgot your link, but I found you anyway!

@Sonia - I thought it was perfect, didn't you?

@Calico - if only!

@Grandma - Amen on that!

@Pat - thanks for that vote of confindence! I love Leno.

@Steve - well, I'm a daughter of a farm-girl, but we have the choice of characters or words. This cow just screamed words to me.

@Word Nerd - thank you! It's all I could think of when I saw her.

@John - Nah...don't put us all in the same egg basket on that one!

@SparkleFarkle - LMAO!!

@jabblog - Absolutely vain. She had the perfect look for it. LOL

@Anyes - Heck yeah.
