  1. Fun taking part. First off, I was born to a dairy farmer long ago. Second off, I LOVE cows . . . As a child remember being awestruck at the big brown eyes of Bossie close up. Third off, I’ve got milk! Fourth off, first time I’ve participated in one of these trending things . . . Gave me some insight into the dynamics. Good on YOU!
