Welcome to the Courtroom Cows' Personal Cyberstead
Tales told by Barbara the Bovine
Conversation with a US Marshal
Cartoon sent to your man in
"el Casa Blanca" with anecdote (Bill Clinton)
After arriving at one of the entrances to Our Lady of Czestochowa
Shrine, Texas was having a conversation with an officer, when they both observed an airplane pass overhead. They
watched it til it went out of sight. What Texas found amusing was that twenty minutes after the plane had passed
over the officers radio was buzzing with concern over the planes passing. Texas couldn't understand why they were
all upset about it. Considering that they had their blue and white rotocraft patrolling above the area.
Anyways, the officer asked Texas, "Why did you bring your cow here?" Texas responded, "Because I'm tired of hearing the government telling me I don't exist! So, I brought Barbara here to prove that I do exist." The officer questioned me about what I was saying. Texas told him that he doesn't have any of the legal documents, such as birth certificate, baptismal, military record, school records, etc, etc. In 1982, a lawyer represented Texas in a law suit against the government. Which the lawyer informed him that they had won.
After Ronald Reagan was finished with his stumping at the shrine, the instructions went out to allow the bicyclists to go down first, and the motorcade would follow. After hearing that Texas
and I (Barbara) started walking down towards Chalfont. After we went past the second exit (for the shrine), people went streaming by on their bicycles. A school bus was approaching from the opposite direction (they had used the buses to ferry the spectators up to the shrine) so Texas noticing that the lawns we were walking on were a little soft from the rain. So we went to cross to the other side of the road, we stepped into the lane that the bus was travelling in causing it to come to a halt..
Texas looked up the road to see if the other lane was clear, and saw what looked like a funeral procession approaching, but it was the Presidential motorcade (they all had their headlights on). As the motorcade neared to within fifty foot of them, Texas dropped all but the end of my lead and took three long strides, till he was standing in the middle of the other lane.
This caused the driver of the lead car to slam on his brakes so hard that the cadillac did a nose dive. The expression on the drivers face was one of extreme dismay. Texas turned around, facing me, and stood there for a few minutes, then I came over to his side of the road. This allowed the bus to pass. After the bus was gone, the lead car started to rev its engine to drive around us, Texas once again dropped enough of my lead rope so that he could step back to the lane I was previously occupying. Texas saw another bus slowly crawling up the road, he remained there till the bus came up and had to stop.
He remained there for a few more minutes, then came over to my side of the road. The driver in the lead car, being very disturbed at the situation, tromped on the gas in an attempt to go around us, nearly striking two people that were walking along side of the bus.
He proceeded down about two tenths of a mile before stopping. The bus moved on and Texas went back into the lane the bus had been in. He remained there for a while again, blocking both sides of the road again.
The rest of the motorcade had not moved since the initial halt. I observed the two occupants of the second car (now first) looking up at the sky and fidgiting and pulling on their sleeves. Finally, after some time, Texas came back to my side of the road and we stood there for a few minutes more before the motorcade went around us, passing into the opposing lane to do so. With the motorcade gone, we decided to head home.
When we got to the intersection of 152 and 202, which had a traffic light, we stood there for a considerable amount of time and the light would just not change. As we were waiting, a military bus was approached and was delayed at the light with us. Texas, getting a little impatient, raised a red painted ammo box (see main page Anecdotes for details on box) towards the traffic that had the green light.
This caused the traffic from both directions to stop (go figure) as we were starting to cross, the GI's in the bus started to cheer.
After getting a bite to eat, we started out for the barn. As we ambled along, on our way home a military rotocraft appeared, circled around us, went back down from the were we had just been. Twenty minutes later, the rotocraft once again circled us and returned from whence it had come, and this occurred every twenty minutes for the next three hours.
That last time the rotocraft came around, we had hung a left onto a side road, that led to the farm, and we were down it about a half mile.
The rotocraft came to the intersection, made a circle, from that circle it made another, working its way down the road in our direction. When it started its third circle, Texas noted that it would pass overhead. So, we stopped and Texas rested his arms on my shoulders and waited till the rotocraft was straight overhead.
When that happened, Texas looked straight up and gave them a nice big smile and a wave. After that they must have gone back to their own barn for we didn't see them anymore after that.
Upon getting back to the barn, ourselves, Texas had tuned in WFIL (5600 am radio) to listen to the Dave Madden show, Cross Fire.
Near the end of the show, a caller said, "that he was in Doylestown yesterday and saw some guy there with his cow!" Well after hearing that, and Texas being Texas, he had to call in and tell them our entire history from A to Z!
