One-Liner Wednesday — Ride the cow.

“When you ain’t got a horse, you ride the cow.”
NORMA MILLER, legendary Lindy hopper and the Queen of Swing, quoting her mother on how to get through the hard times

I thought about my grandparents (born during the turn of the century) and my parents (growing up before Civil Rights) when I first heard this. They were experts at riding that cow so that when I came along, I didn’t have to ride one quite as much.

(Ms. Miller, in the chef’s hat and pretty in pink in her 90s.)
