And offers other gratuitous advice and neighborly comments on Miss Vicky's farming techniques and her new station as a weather prognosticator.
Comments re article 79159 Greater Bliss Where does one get cow size blinders

By Guy Babin

Miss Vicki: Might I suggest your pampered bovines take shelter from the new illuminations amongst the Great China Wall of hay rolls you've amassed this year. What a shadow they must create!

JM and I were contemplating just the other day if maybe you feel we're in for an epic winter based on the volume of your hay collection.

Have you become the Adair Co. counterpart to that yankeefied ground hog up north predicting winter's severity?

My mangy countryfied Gradyville cows don't seem to covet blinders nor bovine Ray Bans. They prefer to night graze and loaf under the unincumbered vividness of the milkyway and Orion.

Should one of your beloved charges succumb to a fried retena, you're welcome to convalesce them here in our dark Gradyville holler. --Guy Babin
