I think it's a very good painting. I know too little about Winslow Homer (1836 - 1910).

Hi DC,

and there's an exhibition of him right now.

Rodrigue is most famous for his "Blue Dog" paintings. He has done some New Orleans Jazzfest posters.

That's definitely a variety of the blues. The old farmers around here refer to that sort of thing as an "Oh SHhit Stituation."

I once assisted a vet cleaning out a cow that had calved and not completely passed the afterbirth. That involves the use of an OB glove that comes to the shoulder.

Towards the end of the proceedure, reaching in for the very last bits way up inside, the cow got loose from the rope by which it had been tied to a post and began trying to get away from the vet, who could not get away from the cow.

Mind you, this is in about a 40 acre field with lots of room for the cow and no place for anybody to get her cornered. The cow wasn't in good shape, but she was giving the vet a real workout.

I guess it was because of the combination of commotion and rather intense smells associated with the proceedure that the bull decided the cow was in heat and the alarmed vet was another bull competing for the cow's affections.

The cow's owner and I did our best at trying to recapture the cow while attempting to free the vet while keeping the bull at a distance. When the vet managed to get out as far as the elbow he managed to slip free.

That was an "Oh SHhit Situation." I never thought of it in terms of a blues song, but it could be there. I can't wait to see Bruneau's rendition of it.

(I've said it before, city folks just don't know how to have fun.)
