Nice story! My ex-wife used to practice Zen occasionally so we both have our own 'Zen cow' experiences. However, mine cost a lot more than $3.50 to put a smile on my face... Mike.

My brother and sister-in-law came to visit from out of town. My sister-in-law wanted to make the rounds of the antique malls to look for the cat jewelry she collects. We parked the car so we could walk and enjoy the weather. We had lunch outdoors. The conversation was light, with lots of laughing. The sun was warm while the breeze was cool. Children were laughing and playing. I was completely at home from the inside out. We made our way to the last antique mall and were browsing through the many isles and displays. I looked up and saw a small statue of a cow- it was painted brilliant sky blue with puffy white clouds all over. I immediately thought, "It's the zen cow!" and I laughed out loud. Every time I look at it I laugh. What a treasure for $3.50! So moo! or mu!" Margie (roloro1557)
