Lim-moooooo-sine!

Did you see the world famous cow limo strolling along between Sheffield and Princeton Monday afternoon? The hysterical sight had people stopping in their tracks, giggling and pulling out their cameras to get an everlasting shot of the cow-spotted vehicle. The limo came from Indiana and was rented out by a group of seven women celebrating their 60th birthday this year. They were in the area staying at the Chestnut Street Inn in Sheffield Sunday evening and stopped by Myrtle’s Cafe and Pie Shop in Princeton on their way out of the area. The owner of the limo is Jeff Macke, who once owned a comedy club, but gave it up and decided to take on a new sort of fun. His limo service gets anywhere from 50 to 100 calls a day from people all over the country looking to rent out his limo for their special event. He said even well-known celebrities and comedians have taken a ride in the entertaining limo. For more information about his limo, visit his website at rentcowlimo.com.
