It was not uncommon to see long horned steers when I lived in Texas, but they are very unusual in northern Illinois.

Norm, the local farrier, keeps these two on their nearby property. They always bring a smile to my face. Norm's wife Margie always says they're his pets.

MEME Fact #4 - I went to high school with musician John Prine and actor Dennis Franz (Dennis Schlachta back then).

John Prine!!!!! I LOVE his sense of humor and his song-writing! Lucky you. I wonder if he was a nut back then?

Beautiful Composition!

I don't remember John Prine being a nut. He was a pretty low key guy who leaned more towards the "greaser" crowd. He worked as a mailman for awhile but I do remember he always believed in his music and stuck with it and made in a very, very difficult business. I knew Dennis Franz a little better because I was in the theater group of which he was a major player. Very nice and down-to-earth guy even to this day I hear.

Lesle - HA......No compositional thought - the "boys" just posed for me. Actually they were looking at me like I was a crazy lady.

Hey there Zanne

I am loving your take on the MeMe thing and of course I knew you'd have some pretty fantastic facts to share - better than my 'favourite colour' tosh! Anyway, keep sharing the great photos and wonderful stories.
