Old MacDonald's Transferware Farm

Old MacDonald had a farm,
Of English Transfer ware…

Rooster today, feather duster tomorrow
~Frank Mcmanus~

As for butter versus margarine, I trust cows more than chemists.  ~Joan Gussow~

The mere brute pleasure of reading - the sort of pleasure a cow must have in grazing.
~Lord Chesterfield~

I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.
~Henry David Thoreau~

The other day when I was walking through the woods, I saw a rabbit standing in front of a candle making shadows of people on a tree.
 ~Stephen Wright~

The pig and the chicken were on their way to breakfast, trying to decide what to eat when chicken said, "let's have ham and eggs." Pig then replied, "that's fine for you, it's a small donation on your part, but it's a total sacrifice for me."

Oink, oink

Mary Astor said, "The man who goes fishing gets more than the fishes he catches."  That quote reminds me of Shawn.
While we lived in Colorado he'd go fishing at either Eleven Mile Canyon, or at Pike's Peak's Crystal Lake or Glen Eyrie Reservoir and never gave a care as to whether he caught a fish or not.  He so loved being out of doors and I imagine that many of his thoughts were relative to this next quote, "Some men go to church and think about fishing, other men go fishing and think about God."

Shawn's first fishing adventure didn't take place at a beautiful lake though.   His very first catch?   The ceiling fan in our living room…. such a Clark Griswold moment.
