I managed to get a picture of Mr. C. Cow’s outgoing letter to Santa Clause this year. I thought you all would like to see how a cow writes a present convincing letter to a jolly man with gift giving abilities. My commentary is in bold with ** next to it.
From The Desk Of Mr. C. Cow
Seasons greetings! I hope that you are having a wonderful holiday time. I am writing to discuss the “naughty or nice” list. As we all know, the list is a large factor that determines if we get presents or not. I feel that I have been good more than bad this year.
(**I Agree! He did stop using six towels to dry off after a shower. Mr. C. said it was for “maximum dryness”. **)
Rinsing dishes instead of licking clean
(**This is a skill mastered in the last few months**)
Remembering to fill camper gas tank so Tipsy doesn’t run out of gas in the middle of nowhere
(**The last time this happened I was in the desert around, oh, fifty miles, from a gas station…with no cellular phone service….**)
Enclosed you will find a few “nice list” references as well as my gift list.
(**He did ask us if he could put us down as a reference.**)
I hope that you will see I have been good so I get, at least, one gift. I will leave you milk, cookies, and carrots (for your reindeer). This year they will be free of bite marks.
(**Who wants to make bets that the bite marks don’t happen?**)
Mr. C. Cow
Nice Friends List (**That is supposed to be the head of a “dog cow”**)
Bishop “Tipsy” Cerulean Marslean
Please bring them presents! (**How thoughtful!!**)
My Present List:
A milk can (of course!)
Stilts (**Oh please no!!!**)
Hot Sauce Gift Pack
I thought that was a rather thought out letter. Had very valid points. Was done in colorful crayon. Minimal spelling and grammar errors. Nice job Mr. C. Cow!!!
I hope that you all have your “naughty or nice” argument letters ready to go. The holly jolly man can’t wait all day.
Photos and great crayon letter by me! (and Mr. C. Cow of course!!)
