When our oldest son was the age of our youngest son now, he was known to be heard quoting his then-favorite book. "Cowboy Gene was long and lean..." He could recite the entire book. We read it nearly everyday. Now, I am hard pressed to keep his nose out of nearly any book everyday. At least his recitation has taken on greater meaning. But one has to wonder whether his earlier narrations were not somewhat prophetic....as we look across the back forty and see..."no less than sixteen cows.''
