Are You My Mother?

This morning I helped get the kids up and dressed and instead of leaving the house with them I lallygagged a little. I cleaned up, I blogged, I did my hair a little fancier than usual, I had a cup of coffee, I read the news...

And as I drove to work, on the road that I live on, I was talking to my husband and saw a cow. In the road. I hung up with hubby, stopped the car, put it in park and got out to take a picture of the cow... in the road.
Exhibit 1: I have stepped out of the car and here is the Cow.
Exhibit 2: The cow has begun running towards me, and I start running but still try to get a picture. (So I don't know if this is an exhibit of the cow so much as my stupidity)
Exhibit 3: Safely in my car the cow in the mirror, very close.
Exhibit 4: The cow is now chasing my car as if it is his Mother.
I need to note here that Cows are much faster than you could ever anticipate. Very fast.

So you got all fancied up to cow chase in the rain!

Are there lots of cows near there? Do they find their way home?

Yes - now I am worried about the cow ;)

I don't blame the calf for following Marsha. I would too! Imagine coming around a sharp corner on a country road and seeing a "ghost" in the road. Turned out to be a full grown Holstein. Uhm, we were in a '87 Mazda RX7. Can you say we would have been destroyed??
