About the Author:

OLD MOOWhen I was in the eighth grade I was so skinny it embarrassed me to be seen without a shirt on. Many times I wished that I had the money to take the Charles Atlas body building course. I envied Charles, as pictured on the beach with his marvelous physique, showing his muscles to admiring pretty girls in bathing suits. I pictured myself as the skinny guy in the picture, being pushed around by Charles and ignored by the pretty girls.One day I got the idea that I should eat more food. I thought I could gain a lot of weight and turn it into muscle, if I had enough milk to drink.

Her only defect was that she had a crooked horn. The horn on her left side tended to spiral, Dad assured me that the crooked horn would not affect her milk. We named her "Old Moo". She was to be my companion for three years. Daddy taught me how to milk and I watered, fed, and milked Old Moo every morning and every day after I got home from school. She didn't give a lot of milk; usually three or four quarts per milking. I drank my share of it but I never looked like Charles Atlas. Instead, my feet grew to great proportions and I grew taller but I was still skinny.One day Old Moo had a calf and we had lots of milk for several weeks after her calf was born.. We named her it "Little Moo". He was butchered when he became old enough to become veal. He was a cute little guy and Old Moo and I enjoyed playing with him but I really didn't miss him after he was butchered, but I sure enjoyed those sizzling steaks on my dinner plate.Later on my father invested in an apple orchard acro
