Something you won't hear in the city
"Are you aware there are cows coming up your driveway?" asked the voice on the other end of the telephone.
A neighbor was letting me know the cattle were out again. It seems every time we get high winds, a tree falls over the barbed-wire fence on the 240 acres in back of our property. The cattle always seem to find the escape route.
I have "B.D. Cow" programmed into my cell phone. I dial the number and a fellow named B.D. says he's on the way to roundup the black Angus.
I'm told that the person who owns the 240 acres also is the owner of Crockett Beef Jerky headquartered in Maryville. I guess we know why the cattle are restless.
