Crazy About Colantha: New dairy festival will celebrate a champion cow
By Erin Crowell
The Holstein cows a wonderous thing:
She makes a fellers pockets ring;
She fills em full and runs em oer,
And pads up bank accounts, galore.
An all the bossies graze, serene
Out where the grass is sweet and green;
Content to prosper those who join
The black and white for ready coin.
--I.A. Kimble, 1925
Graves and insane asylums creepy, right? Together, they conjure up
images of unkempt yards, wrought iron gates and stark buildings
flash of lightning and a rumble of thunder.
