Elsie ran to the widow, threw open the shutters, and let go a MILK curdling scream!

  2. Is that where cottage cheese comes from? Great shadow. Tells the whole story. Kind of reminds me of watching Food Inc. last night.

  4. I hope Elsie manages to escape!
    She looks so cute with her pink nose.
    However, most cows have that real shadow over their lives.
    Great interpretation of the theme 'shadow'.

  12. My coffee just went cold... No, really, I refuse to believe that any of your characters can truly have ill-intentions, I think they may just be misunderstood. Perhaps Elsie's friend was just getting ready to cut the cheese... ;)

  15. Whey to go! Haha! Love her expression. Please tell me that's a banana in her hand. And maybe Elsie just cannot stand another knock knock joke. Knock knock. Who's there? Banana. Banana who. Knock knock.... Aaaaaaaarrrrrggghhhhh!

    Oooho, coincidentally, I just watched Temple Grandin this week. And you are so right. Cows don't like shadows!

  26. OMG! Major typo error on your name. Sorry. Here goes again:

    Hi Jack, thanks for your comment. It will take 6 to 12 months for an oil painting to fully dry and oxidize before it can be varnished. That's why I say, it's almost finished! :)

  27. A milk curdling scream, that's funny stuff. This put a big smile on my face, even though its unfortunate for Elsie. Your shadow is the best!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Haha Jack you know I came yesterday and wrote great stuff that was just scintillating and amazing just like I did on Bellas but even betterer and Google ate it !!!!! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh

    so I must be my usual mundane self and tell you that I laughed and only because of the woman with the knife who reminds me of the lady next door and whose name is Griselda, of course the cow is the lady across the road whose name funily enough is also Griselda.

    Jack I am so pleased to be your fiend. :)

    Haha, a milk curdling scream. That is a crackup ! Thank you for the xtra laugh line. :)
