...when cows fly

I have a piggy bank that is actually a cow/piggy bank that I love. Don't ask me who his parents are. That is none of my business. He sits high on a kitchen shelf but has yet to fly. On this day in 1930, Elm Farm Ollie became the first cow to fly in a fixed-wing aircraft and also the first cow to be milked in an aircraft. His buddies now refer to it as the mile high club and many are trying to join. We have to work within our physical limitations but that doesn't mean that they can hold us back. If cows can fly, we can do anything, not to slight Ollie. Spread your wings today. It feels great.
