GOT MILK, A CALIFORNIA TALE

She happily drove to the market, To get food and things for her family. Alas, how heartbroken was she! With no dairy products in the store to see. She drove home,sobbing ever so tearfully. Then she spied some cows in yon meadow. Aha, a light went on in her head, though! I have a big silver bucket in my trunk. She took it, under the cow's magic udders, it went, kerplunk! She worked those udders till her bucket was full. Ah, that joy she did it and was so successful! With great joy and relief she drove home. Knowing she lived in God's hands, a happy tome.

G'day Panagiota … some people would be gobsmacked. They believe milk comes in cartons from a supermarket - thanks Panagiota - Lindsay

Hello Lindsay...indeed they would! I live in a county that has farms. Better yet we are wine country and produce many wines for the USA. So, kids here see cows often and at any fairs. Our state is under Stay In Place orders at this time. Be well! Panagiota Xx
