My Girlfriends Are Quirky Fun Seekers

"Fun Seekers" cow from Cow Parade (Houston, Texas, 2001) is the perfect girl for today. She has so many gorgeous funseekers painted on her that I had to photograph both sides. Since I spent the entire morning working in the yard, I decided to take her pictures outside and show off my newly mowed grass. (The pictures on this cow do not represent my girlfriends. Any resemblance they may have to any of us is purely coincidental.)

This cow makes me think about how lucky I am to have some really great girfriends. They are all such fun seekers. We are known as Quirks, and you only get one guess why.

Last night we went to Olive Garden to celebrate Peggy's birthday. I forgot to take the camera, but I did take the camera to the Sugar Mill the last time we had lunch together. It was only about a month ago, so we don't look that different. We always have such a good time when we get together. We have been friends for over twenty years. (L to R, Faith, Kathy, Dawn, and Peggy) We are getting together on Saturday to plan a trip to Chicago in November while our husbands go to a gun show in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

This picture was taken at another one of Peggy's birthdays. I won't say how old she is now, but this picture was taken six years ago, and this birthday was a "BIG ONE." That's Peggy in the middle. The Quirk in the red shirt is Nyla. She got married and moved to Iowa, so we don't see her too often anymore, but once a Quirk, always a Quirk. On the far left, we have Sonnie. She is the Quirk who has just opened a new face and nail salon after retiring from teaching, so she has been very busy lately.

This is one of my favorite pictures of the Quirks. This is the day my youngest son, William, got married. Of course, all the girlfriends turned out for the event. We all try to be there for each other in good times and in sad times. It's soooo good to have these Quirks in my life.

That's one of my favorite cows.
:-) What a fun group of girl friends you have!

BTW, our convertable is a 2003 Porsche Boxter, silver with black interior. There is a picture of it on my blog under the "weather" tag if you want to check it out.:-)
