Fashionable Wreath

It’s Mr. C. Cows favorite time of the year. Holiday trees. Garland. Tinsel that gets stuck onto his horns if he gets to close to them. Decorating the camper and our house with lights. The season brings out some sort of holly holiday homemaker/baking champion out in Mr. C. Cow.

What does this mean for me? It means that, during the month of December, I find myself visiting as many places that involved Santa Claus, stockings hung by chimneys with care, and sugar plum fairy attractions as possible. If it promises yuletide cheer we’re there. Even if they just have a sock hung on a wood burning stove then Mr. C. Cow will want to see it.

Today we stopped at an extra snowy area because we saw a couple of bears (and a bunny) decked out for the holidays. Mr. C. Cow just had to know where they bought their fashionable duds.

Did you know that there is some sort of warehouse dedicated to the sale of wreaths as necklaces? I wasn’t aware that such a thing existed but, according to the bears (and a bunny), it was the best place to find such items in a generous bear (or critter) size. The things you learn when you just stop and talk to others!

While they discussed the pros and cons of wearing real plants I sat on a log and watched two small bears in cute little tiny sweaters ice skate.

They weren’t half bad and would stop on occasion to give each other bear hugs. As they twirled and hugged Mr. C. Cow and his new friends discussed how one waters live wreaths safely. (You take them off BEFORE watering. Makes perfect sense to me.) When they started to get into talking about proper pruning techniques I watched a group of animals on a sled wiz on by with a bunch of presents.

The cat driving was a maniac behind the wheel (errr…string….rope…sled harness? Whatever!). They were going so fast that the little bear along with their presents flipped off the back. The cat was so focused on driving that he didn’t even notice the loss of passengers and cargo. Alarmed I rushed to the little bears side. His tiny little head was stuck in a snow drift so I pulled him out and checked for broken paws (and head!). The bear , who gave their name as Tim, was fine just a little shook up. When Tim realized that the cat (who happened to be named “Speedy” Sam) had left him behind he started to cry.

“How will I ever carry all of these presents to the forest creatures without the sled??” (Boo Hoo Hoo Hoo)

Giving Tim the tiny bear a hanky to wipe his tears away (and to blow his nose…I told him he could keep the hanky) I said that Mr. C. Cow and I would be more then happy to give him a lift. Grateful for the kindness he accepted. I managed to pull Mr. C. Cow away from his conversation and we dropped the bear off just in time to make a bunch of woodland creatures day.

We learned a few things today. Driving a sled at neck breaking speeds is not recommended. If you decide to wear a wreath as a scarf be sure that you are not allergic to it. If it involves the holidays Mr. C. Cow will hunt it down and you will visit it.

That’s a lot of learning!

I am betting that many of you have been wondering how Mr. C. Cow and I get all of our money to travel. How do we pay for gas? How do they have the money to eat? It’s easy! Mr. C. Cow lays golden eggs.

I’m joking!

We actually own a business along with my sweetheart (You’ll get to meet him soon enough!) Bishop. While we are out and about traveling the globe in our camper Bishop runs our heavy equipment business. It’s called “Tealeaf Equipment” and it’s across the street from a rest stop we opened on Route 11.

How much do you and Mr. C. Cow, actually, know about equipment?

The answer is…..we know that you use it to do stuff. Like move stuff or build stuff or whatever. That’s why Bishop runs the business while we are out sending postcards to all of you! We decided to open up an equipment company to make some camper gas money because Mr. C. Cow already owned a hard hat. I also liked the idea of having people pay me to drive around their yards and yell construction lingo while driving around.

I think that Mr. C. Cow really enjoys the noise that machinery makes while backing up as he is very good at going “Beep Beep Beep”. Sometimes, while we are in the shop, we like to make the noise in harmony while Bishop drives by. I think that might be one of the reasons he’s in a great mood while we are off in the camper. That and the fact that we did, accidentally, run a port-a-potty over.

I think I need to send Bishop a gift basket for putting up with us, letting us travel and share, as well as replacing the port-a-potty.

I would also like to give a shout out to MayMay who is the artist who created the cartoon bunny you see in the postcard. (Your bunny is being safe up there I swear!) You can check out her artwork right HERE!
