Cow Economy

You have two cows.
You sell one and buy a bull. Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on the income.

You have two cows.
You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. Sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States, leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release. The public buys your bull.

You have two cows.
You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised when the cow drops dead.

You have two cows.
You go on strike because you want three cows.

You have two cows.
You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create clever cow cartoon images called Cowikimon and market them worldwide.

You have two cows.
You reengineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

You have two cows, but you don't know where they are... You break for lunch.

You have two cows.
You count them and learn you have five cows.
You count them again and learn you have 42 cows.
You count them again and learn you have 12 cows.
You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.

You have 5000 cows, none of which belong to you. You charge others for storing them.

You have two cows.
You have 300 people milking them.
You claim full employment, high bovine productivity, and arrest the newsman who reported the numbers.

You have two cows... both are mad.

You have two cows... and the one on the left is kinda cute...

Midgie, safe driving wished for you today. We're getting all snow in my area.

Venus, have a nice workday.

So today's experiment in cat psychology went terribly wrong again. After all the cat stuff in the last few days, which culminated with my oldest Outdoorsie coming to the FRONT door of my house (a thing she never does). I followed her around back and discovered that HER cozy tent was occupied by one of the ferals. This is the second time this has happened. Usually she camps out in whichever of the two tents is empty and the ferals group in only one tent. Two tents, no room at the inn. So I scooted the ferals out and put good old Spot in and all was well once again. SMART cat. This is the second time she did this, coming to the front porch, behavior. Wow. I'm learning!

So after that, and thinking it's going to pour rain, etc. and she's so old and her partner died awhile back and she's probably lonely, I decided to try to bring her inside for the rest of her life. I figured my Indoorsie, Bubba, who lost his only partner too, might like the company. I started out by letting them sniff noses through the door. Seemed OK. Then I carried Spot through the house. She was very very interested in 'inside'. So this morning, after Bubba was fed, and happy, I brought Spot in to the back room and set her at the food dish. She was not happy and went roaming through the house towards the front door. Bubba met her, he meowed (sorta friendly) but Spot howled and growled and ran for the back door escape route. I picked her up, get her purring and set her back outside where she was obviously soooo happy now. Not gonna try that one again. Guess my plan of a 'happy retirement' for Spot wasn't what she wanted.

In better news, the interlopers, new cats on the block at the neighbors, seem to be staying on 'their' side of the fence. I think my Outdoorsies have stated the rules to them. Neighbor says he is getting the potty box and scratching post from the son who gave him the cats. Hope so. Still expecting heavy rain tonight and want those poor kitties snug and warm inside or under something dry.

Off to watch the Arias trial. Fascinating.
