Just make sure you really know it's a cow first.

Is it too late to suggest making sure that its a female cow before engaging in the milking?

Otherwise someone might want to follow you home...

Perhaps at this juncture you may want to consider a different attempted hobby...?

Doesn't Steven King live in Bangor, ME? (Although anyone in his/her right mind with his kind of money who lived in Bangor would be sure to have another place in a warmer climate.)

When I lived in ME, we walked by his house once. An old Victorian with a very weird wrought iron fence - obviously custom made for him - with bats, spiders, etc.

I don't know if he still lives in Maine but he has a house in Florida on Casey Key .

It may be shortly before I die, but I've always wanted to stand in the eye of a hurricane.

Kumquat, I've been in the eye of a hurricane (passed right over us) and it is the weirdest calm you could imagine. We could see stars in the sky. It lasted about 30 minutes before the eyewall winds (strongest) hit.

Not scary, actually. But what I dream of doing, and these latest storms send me to the NHC website to ogle, is to ride in a hurricane hunter! It would be the thrill of a lifetime to actually fly into the eye and back out again.

She's a goat.

By the way, before I die I want to discover the fountain of youth.

Thanks. Damn fountain of youth compared to cow milking. I think I set my expectations too low
