Mad Cow Monday

As I was driving home from the gym last night I noticed several of Friendswood's finest driving slowly down the road with their lights on. I didn't see any cars pulled over, so I thought this odd. Then I noticed something moving through the bushes on the side of the road and wondered if they had some bad kids on the run. Then I saw it. A cow had escaped the field it was grazing in and was running down the side of the highway. The police were attempting to keep it from running into the street.

Finally one of the cops got out of his car and jumped in front of the cow who promptly jumped through the barbed wire fence (ouch!) and back into the enclosure. Mr. Policeman was extremely proud of himself, and all was right with the world. Excitement from the 'wood on a Monday evening!! Yet another reason we were voted one of the best places in the US to live. Good times!!

How exciting! Who needs the big city when you have excitement like that right there in the 'wood?!? It almost makes me miss it...I said almost!
