ASCII Cows

Living proof that I still have two eyes (and four hats)
The left eye is still a bit puffy, bloodshot and tender
but I can actually see out of it so things are improving.





















I love these ASCII cows, they're right up there with
emoticoms.


.......................... An American cow

......................... An Australian cow

...................... David Copperfield's cow

......................... David Copperfield's other cow

...................... A cow running

.......................... A cow braking

..................... A cow sheltering from the rain

....................... Dr. Doolittle's cow

.......................... Siamese cows

....................... Ben Franklin's cow

Hi Peter ~~ Glad to see from your photos that your eye is healing and looking pretty good.Is it still
feeling "full of sand"? Like the cows - specially our Aussie upside down cow. Take care and keep on getting better, Love, Merle.

Fun post, Peter.

I wonder what an asian cow would look like. I am Asian. They must have small eyes. :)

Hi Peter ~~ Glad to hear that the eye is improving and the pain hs eased.
I hope Jackie is feeling better soon
too after her knee op. That wouldn't
be a lot of fun. I liked Steve g's
comment!!. Thanks for your visit - the rules are sure strict for those Guards, they would have to be very dedicated to stick to the -FOR LIFE.
Take care, Love, Merle.

As I work for an ophthalmologist I have seen many people go thru pterygium surgery. It sounds like you are doing very well, just be sure and use all the eye drops as you're supposed to! Glad it went well, and I agree with the general consensus that the white hat looks best on you.

Glad to see the healing process is happening nicely.

Wonder what's going wrong with the music thingies on the blogs ... yours isn't playing at all for me !!

Mine isn't playing for me, either, but apparently it is for everyone else !!

I can hear everyone else's music though ... weird !!

Oh yeah, I prefer the white hat, or the last one !!

Hope your weekend is going well.

Take care, Meow

Now THOSE were the days, when it took a lot of patience and imagination to create pictures with the keyboard. Not like all the current ready made emoticons you can just insert with a few clicks. Thanks for bringing back the memories!

Hey, what happened to your Johnny Depp look?
