Just a Thought.......


Rev.DaveFischer Rev.DaveFischer My Lexington education continues with my most recent “learnin’. You can be snubbed by a cow. In fact, it is possible to be rejected by an entire field of bovines at one time.

Happened to me, courtesy of the herd of the kind landowner where I stay. I pulled up to the house and the entire group of double munchers immediately headed toward me. But, when they got close enough to see me, or is that smell me, they suddenly tossed their collective heads derisively and moved away. Way away.

I was puzzled as I had showered just that morning. Later, when I asked around, I got some important country information.

“If you want the cows to like you, you need to start carrying a bucket of cubes with you.”

“Cubes?”

“Feed cubes,” came the answer, with the now familiar look, “You’re not from around here, are you?”

I’m not. But I’m trying to fit in. I know, I’m still a hat, two boots and a belt buckle short, but that’s in the plans for the future.

In the meantime, I am trying to repair my wounded ego.

It’s the first time I’ve ever been rejected by a moo moo.

Rev. David Fischer is interim Minister at First Christian Church in Lexington
