Have a COW:










Or maybe have a calf?











My best feature. I earned these the hard way about 25 years ago as a missionary in Denmark. In those days, and in those Scandinavian countries, the missionaries stuck to the apartment areas, which were predominant anyway. The design of those apartment buildings was such that there are MANY outside doors, each with its own address. As you walk in, there are 2 doors on the first floor, 1R, and 1L, right and left. Then up the stairs to 2R, 2L, this goes on for four five, even six floors - you knock on only two doors per floor, then walk all the way down, go 30 yards down the street to the next address, same building, and start all over again. Day in and day out, month in and month out. Yes, those calves are earned.

Funny - I played with two of the kids in a three on three basketball tournament about 3 years ago. We did okay, winning our fair share. One of the boys' friends who was playing on a team with his own dad, came up to him and said, DOOD, your dad has MASSIVE calves!! How did he DO that?

Yep, earned the hard way.

On another note, we went to the inauguration of Red Butte Gardens' new amphitheater last night with two of the kiddies. Playing was Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. The picture of him is from a bit of a distance, so it's a little grainy, but you get the idea. We were there, he was there, they played good music, we drank things, and enjoyed the good music. The end.

Alright, I kind of liked you before, but now, now I am really pissed. Just because I said 'pull my finger', and made everyone around us hysterical and gag in the middle of Tony Bennett is no reason to exclude me from other "in the park" performances.
Now, I am going to go have a glass of wine all by myself and pout...and listen to some Tony.....

PS. I think there is some genetic predisposition to "the calf". Dude up here has monstrous ones and thighs to boot. Asses! The only way my calves look good these days is in 5 inch heels.
Again, now I need more wine!

In the most platonic, non-pervy way possible: OH MY FREAK YOU HAVE AMAZING LEGS.

I too did the Scandinavian block apartment building stair climber exercise. I bike regularly and do a serious leg weight routine every few days. And no, I don't have calves (cows) that look like that.

That cow photo makes the rounds as my computer wallpaper at least three times a year.

You went and enjoyed jazz. (Not THE JAZZ, ugh, but real jazz...) I went and enjoyed watching my sisters get sloshed up at Jordanelle. We had a birthday party at the public restroom. Unfortunately we all forgot our pink flamingo trailer decorations.
