High up in the mountains of Colorado there's a very small town called Guffey. I was talking to to a fiend one day and she said, "have you heard about the Mayor?" I had not, so I said no, what about the Mayor? She said "it's, a Dog," and I said, "what's a Dog?" She replied, "It's a Dog, the Mayor," Then she goes on, well it was a Dog but when the Dog passed away It was a Cat. I started laughing so hard I was crying. Then she says, "oh if you haven't heard that, have you heard of the Chicken Fly." I'm like what the heck is a Chicken Fly? It's when they put a Chicken in the mailbox that has no back on it, and push the Chicken out with a toilet plunger.The person who's Chicken Flies the furthest wins a prize. I was still laughing about the Dog And Cat for Mayor, let alone a Chicken Flying out of a mailbox aided by a toilet plunger. I was to the point of holding my stomach because it was hurting from laughing so hard. I should run Norman for Mayor if a Dog and a Cat can run why not a Cow. She said, "no don't do that it would just be a war." So I just dropped it. But I couldn't get it out of my head, a Dog for Mayor, a Cat for Mayor, why not a Cow for Mayor!! So one day I decided to write a book about it. I love to write so it wasn't a chore. As I was writing, the story just started to come to life. It was a steady stream of thoughts coming so fast I could hardly write them down. I didn't want to forget a sequence or Character so it was a little nerve-racking.
PS After laughing so hard about all the small town stuff, we ended up Playing COW POOP BINGO with NORMAN at an event we had at our Farm in Guffey called Moonstruck Farms it was a blast!!!!!
