What’s a Nice Cow Like You Doing in a Place Like This?

On Friday night Studly Doright and I had dinner with our son, his wife, and her mother at a place called Blue Mabel Smokehouse and Provisions in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. It was a great casual place with a full bar and really good food. I ate way too much.

The decor was heavy on bovines. Paintings of Black Angus, Hereford, Charolais, and other beef cattle breeds adorned the walls. Very clever. The theme even continued into the ladies’ (and I’m assuming, men’s) rooms. But there I found a special kind of cattle decorating the wallpaper:

A Muckle Coo aka Highland Cow

I became so fond of these cows when I first saw them in Scotland that I purchased a Christmas ornament similar to this:

Cute, right? They just seemed a little out of place in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, USA, but they did make me smile.

Peace, people!
