Free Will...

To quote someone more literate than a simple Topiary Cow:

"I was a free man until they brought the dessert menu around. There was one of those molten chocolate cakes, and I was suddenly being dragged into a vortex, swirling helplessly toward caloric doom, sucked toward the edge of a black chocolate hole..."

"A bevy of experiments in recent years suggest that the conscious mind is like a monkey riding a tiger of subconscious decisions and actions in progress, frantically making up stories about being in control."

The Topiary Cow should like to lose 15 pounds if she can get that monkey off the tiger, that is.

Moo!

You need a Supreme Commander in the Land of Topiary.

That would keep those chocolate desserts in line!

We Topiary Sauropods used to have Free Will...to eat anything.

Now, shucks, there just isn't any scope for us anymore.

You are bored, by favorite herbaceous Bovine...You should read Felder Rushing's column today..a quote; "..Develop a relaxing garden pursuit such as bonsai or topiary, garden photography, flower arranging, collecting or hybridizing favorite plants, or bee keeping."

PS..I too have realized the observation you made in the past is true. All of us can't be chosen..guess they realize we will say what we like without comment..hell, I answer myself. MUAH-HA-HA-HAAAAAAAA!

errrr, I mean *cluck*

Hi Clucky---

Yes, poor MR's pencil pot wished for a better photo for Christmas but Santa did not bring one.

That was from a photo of MR from his Cure Magazine interview, I just cropped the pencil pot part of it.

I will go check out the San Diego post.

Moo!
