Holy Cow

Harry Carey was a beloved announcer for the Chicago Cubs. He died a few years ago but his restaurants (steak) are still going strong. He was famous for his loud voice, big glasses and always saying "Holy Cow". So, here is a Holy Cow in front of one his restaurants which happens to be near OHare Airport. I thought it was a hoot!-


  1. Hi Neva!
    Cowparade in Chicago? ;))
    Borders? Much easier now for us: from Lisbon to Finland, ten countries, no borders... ;)
    Meanwhile, Blogtrotter is now at the Michigan Law School waiting for you! Hope you enjoy it and wish you a great weekend!

  2. Is this where holey cheese comes from.. It sure makes a great picture Neva...
    Tom :O)

  3. elle est terrible cette vache avec ces grandes lunettes ;o)) , belle création.
    it is terrible that cow with these big glasses ;o)) , beautiful creation.

  4. Very funny! The catch phrase has turned into an interesting sculpture. I love it!

  5. Oh, yeah, it's a hoot! I'm so glad you got this photo to share with us, Neva.

  6. Too funny. But who wants to see a cow then go in and eat it. Guess being vegetarian I look at it differently.

  7. Well, "Louis" has mixed emotions about this, as you might expect...... ;-)

  8. Has Holy Cow met Geeva Kelly's moose?
    I think that might make sweet music togetehr. I do like quirky thinks like this. Don't they just make you smile.

  9. Lovely story - and it's great to see you in the shot as well.

    By the way, did you know the story of Butch O'Hare? The airport is named after him and there is a statue of him between the terminals.


I am glad you stopped in!
