On the Lam

Remember Daisy Mae's little guy, Duke? Well, he's still handsome but no longer little. In fact, he's one of the heftiest steer calves. 

One morning I when I checked the cows, Daisy Mae was bawling for Duke, who was nowhere in sight. I spent several anxious hours looking for him in a narrow corner of the pasture which was bordered by trees, a creek, and a wetland. Daisy Mae and company just stood there mooing. 

How, I wondered, does a 600 pound person just vanish? Is this the Bermuda Triangle Pasture?

I left to go check the neighbor's pasture and the railroad easement (shudder). I returned to find the whole herd lounging near the barn--with Duke lying right next to the fence, calmly chewing his cud. 

I'll never know where Duke had been hiding. 

"If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me." ~Jeremiah 29:13 (NLT)
