It’s nice to get out in the rural communities once in a while. The newspaper here reported that the local Sherriff was investigating a case of cattle rustling. Cattle rusting? They still do that? I had visions of kids on 4-wheelers driving dairy cows across the rocky plains of St. Lawrence county to rebrand the little doggies. So far they know it was some guys wearing workboots who loaded some calves into a truck. I think they might be calling in the CSI crew, or at least going under cover at the local taverns to listen for braggarts. Anyways, it passes for big news here, and it sure sounds more ominous when you call it “cattle rustling” rather than “some kids stole some cows.”
