Milk Rain


Tonight, at a little donkey's ass before midnight, the Ghosts of Fallen Cows will put on their annual "Milk Rain" show in the old barn.

Visit Tails & Tales, the short story site of artist/Katherine Dunn to read this story.

Frankie, i'd hang a picture of you over my mantle any day! you are such a nut, K. i always thought my rubic's cube costume in the 2nd grade was the best of all times, but Paco's cat bed hay bale got me i think. i'm going to pretend i'm lying in the barn tonight and sleep with my mouth open to drip the nectar flowing from the cracks. BOO

milk dripping from all the crevices--wow... hope it is fresh and it would be drinkable... much better than hearing about blood...

What a great story Katherine! And Frankie definitely needs no decoration.

That's the best halloween mask I've ever seen!You have a great blog!
I love your animal stories and photos! I'm a veterinary nurse from Skandinavia, Finland. I breed oriental sh and siamese cats. I used to have a little farm of my own and I really miss "all creatures great and small!" :)

Thanks for writing everyone - isn't that face so...something? I wish you could see Frankie walk, especially in the rain. She hates rain, and tucks her head at an agle to try to avoid the raindrops. Senja, I love Finland! I spent time there in the '80' s when I studied in Oslo, Norway. Helsinki was wonderful, and my late father who was an architect worked there a lot on business.

Come back again, everyone. I heard the milk ball was pretty intense this year.

Lovely. I have a question about your stuffed lavender dolls. How can you clean them? I'm assuming the lavender would not fair well in the washing machine?!
Also, my son begged me to stuff his recently made sock monkey with flax seeds and lavender but they leaked! How do you prevent that from happening with your beautiful dolls?
Thanks.

Your blog somehow reminds me of the novel Animal Farm by George Orwell.
Looks like a fabulous adventure you're having!
All the best!

Hi again, newcomers. I guess we are a bit George Orwellian...but my first novel I just started will hopefully be read by at least one person some day...

SusieJ- I put the bud in muslin bags which you can find online at many supply places. You can't wash the bud, but you could create a back zipper for your doll and then take out the bag of lavender and wash. I don't market my dolls as kids only so I don't worry about washing. Mainly I have adult buyers with whim and young hearts.

Thanks for writing everyone!
