Have a cow…

Remember that saying, “don’t have a cow, man?” Why don’t we revive that saying? Speaking of cows, look at the little treasure I pulled out of my mom’s garage…

I did have a cow about it. I heart it! What do you think? Now, to find a spot to hang it…

I’ll admit the cow looks a little weird in the pictures; but, you’re going to have to trust me on this one – it’s great in person. I’m sure that the cow head was a purchase either my dad or my Aunt made; they traded cow decor gifts for years. In fact for my Aunt’s 40th birthday party, they had an amazing “Gone with the Wind” costume theme party and my dad showed up looking like this…

My dad always loved his cowboy side and he cherished when he had cattle at our ranch – that is, until he realized he’d have to quit his day job to be a legit cattle rancher. He had a business card that he always carried with him in his wallet that said, “Don Imwalle ‘Cowboy.'” And that’s it. What else would a real estate developer living in Silicon Valley need? This is probably why I treasure the cow head so much, for my dad, the cowboy.

    That was your Uncle’s 40th Gone with the Wind birthday party. I remember the cow head well.

    Loved this! Brought back great memories of your dad. What a special person (obviously…..who else would do the things he did and get away with it?). Great job, Kate!
