Girl's Night Out

If you must know, we call ourselves the Hungry Heifers. At the time of the 'naming' we were unaware that a 'heifer' was a young cow that had not borne a calf. We just knew that we loved to get together, gab, EAT, and let our many children play together. The name stuck.

Standing: Tammy, Kellye, Teri Seated: Kelly, Tracie, Tracie, Terri
I think we've been doing this for 16 or 17 years. All of us have known each other since the 60's, having grown up in the same neighborhood or through school. Others have popped in to play as well. Between the seven of us, there are twenty-two kids. Most are grown now, but that doesn't stop us from reuniting and picking up where we left off.

What a pretty bunch of cows.
Will we see you all crowded in a stall at the fair?
Ha! Do you think Kelly, Tracie and Terri were common names in the 60s or what?

Either it's a fluke that we have the same names or we have just stuck with the same named people because we aren't that bright!
Either way ..who is the heifer in the lower right hand corner??? She may need to be put out to pasture soon...
just lay her down with her bottle and all will be well...

I'M fine Michele...I'm fine!!!

Speaking of 22 kids.... remember when we used to be at the park or near water and we would just count heads? Dang... our lives were tough. Especially when one went missing. I mean it was like... eat a cupcake or look for a kid... drink the soda or maybe have to share it when you find them...toss up...
We come by the Heifer name easily and we do it moo-y well.

...no problems here.

Mooooo - There just might be a stall with our names on it at the fair, at least there should be. VERY common names, at that.
The only close call I remember was with Grant at the Penn Valley Park. Still makes me shiver. We weren't even eating then, must have been gabbing.
None of us is going to put out to pasture! We're as spry as they come.
Name the time and place...I'll be there!

Well I’m proud to be a Heifer
where at least I know I’m free
to rome the hills and countryside
eating everything I see
and I’ll proudly stand up
next to you
to defend that right today
cause their ain’t no doubt
I love my food
God bless the cows today!
(Sung to the tune of I Am Proud To Be An American)

Wow Annon.- My only guess is that this is Tracie, the birthday girl. Such talent in the lyric department. Should we record it? Hope your day was groovy.

Mom- I gotta catch that commercial. Thanks.

P and N - This is the same group that used to chase the Popsicle Lady, some with your silver coins in their grubby little hands.

Hi Claire - Hey I like that! Maybe we should put it to a vote. You're so sweet. Wanna graze with us sometime?
