Bessie got her annual bath today. She had many patches of mossy green on her and her flowers had blown away some time ago, so she was ready! Of course I'm always a day late and a dollar short. The entire family was here last month but admired Bessie anyway in her mossy pathetic state with only her bell around her neck.
She can be easily seen from the street now because I sold the truck last summer. It annoyed me that the best place, the only place really to park it was in an opening in the woods right in front of her. So you could glimpse her from the road briefly but only I saw her in all her glory from the carport.
From my front window I occasionally see cars slowing down to get a better look or show the kids. She is worth her weight in gold! Since she is solid cement that would be quite a chunk. When I move back to Ohio she is going with me.
She is quite the traveler. She Originally lived in Kentucky, then Ohio and now Florida. She has logged quite a few miles on the road, since she has belonged to me, these past six years and only recently has she been christened Bessie. I have no idea why, I just started thinking of her as Bessie instead of the purple cow.
