DRB Feel-Good Issue # 7


"FEEL-GOOD SHOT" #7
Link - by Avi Abrams



Some joyful stuff to brighten up your day

This is a kind of Tumbler-substitute for the caffeinated, busy crowd with deeply-felt and sophisticated sensibilities, somewhat nostalgic about more glamorous times, or just looking for that extra bit of sunshine.

Cows being thrown onto road, not really "feel good". If you know cows you know they didn't come out of that unscathed.

Oh my God. You've got to be kidding me. "Cowcatcher" is just an expression. And suppose it did hit a cow that had somehow wandered near a railroad track? Would it be better for the train to derail? Go hug a tree. Honestly.
