  The family with Old Bessie in Boston

Favorite thing: This is the closest these city dwellers have ever gotten to a cow.

Throughout Boston during the summer of 2006 is a display of painted cows. Over 100 painted cows are part of a fundraiser. Artists were invited to paint a life sized sculpture of a cow to be displayed all summer long on a sidewalk or a park. A high concentration of these cows is in the Back Bay part of Boston. In October 2006 the cows will be rounded up and auctioned to the highest bidders. Proceeds will go to The Jimmy Fund, a nonprofit organization which supports cancer research and care.

The cows were fun to see, and the artwork was quite impressive. We enjoyed going round a corner and coming across yet another cow to inspect!
