Banana Exchange

It’s Mr. C. Cow’s favorite time of the year. A time where you can overindulge in candy canes while hanging up holiday lights. I cannot understand how one can eat so many candy canes due to their peppermint nature but Mr. C. makes this possible. It also causes tummy troubles. This year I’ve hidden all candy canes and am doling them out in small increments. He hasn’t found my stash yet so we’re good so far.

Speaking of holiday lights, Mr. C. Cow and I wandered into a small town that went with the classy main street decorating look.

I enjoy the simplicity of holiday lights in small towns. There is no over abundance of blinking, winking lights as they would be a distraction to motorists. Just bright and twinkly. While I was enjoying the decor, Mr. C. Cow snuck off in search of extra candy canes. His stomach was lucky as the carry out he wandered into was sold out. I caught up with him outside of the store trying to talk a dog family into giving him a candy cane in exchange for a banana he found in the camper.

I distracted Mr. C. Cow with a decoration of Santa hanging on the side of a building to defuse the situation. While he was trying to figure out if it was real Santa, I thanked the dog family for their patience with my cow buddy, gave them a free banana, and wished them a Happy Holidays.

It was getting late and cold standing outside watching Mr. C. Cow decide if he needed to get Santa a ladder, so I explained that it was a decoration and we needed to head out. Mr. C. looked a little sad as we left main street. I wondered if he was sad that he didn’t get to trade a banana for a candy cane but I think he was sadder to see the lights disappear into the distance as we drove on. I think that, tomorrow, I’ll let him string lights up around the camper AND have another candy cane. Maybe I’ll even let him give me a banana for two.

Random Ground Candy

Mr. C. Cow and I got lost the other day attempting to follow a shady looking sign that promised to take us to Santa’s Workshop.

I say that a sign that colorful was just for decoration. Mr. C. Cow say’s it’s real and colorful because elves made it.

Personally, I thought that elves only made toys and cookies.

I didn’t want to disappoint Mr. C. so I, reluctantly, followed him as he followed the arrows. As we were walking along we ran into something that cows dream about. The ultimate in food fantasy for a cow that enjoys the holidays. Something so mind blowing you have to ask yourself how much sugar, elf-power, and equipment went into their creation.

Behold! Two GIANT candy canes!

How did these two GIANT candy canes get there? Was a crane used to move them? Where was the crane? Wasn’t candy canes on the ground unsanitary? Did a giant lose his holiday candy?

Mr. C. Cow wanted to give them a taste lick but I put my little foot down and said no way! We don’t know who they belonged to and if they were actually edible. Friends don’t let friends lick strange candy they find on the ground. Ground candy isn’t safe nor sanitary!

I was able to distract Mr. C. Cow by pointing out a small building I had seen in the distance that looked like some sort of elf related toy factory. While we could, kinda, peek into the windows and see the outline of toys we were unable to tell if they were made by elves.

While I knocked on the door (no answer) to find out if these were indeed the holiday elf made toys I didn’t notice that Mr. C. Cow had wandered off. I was too busy waiting at the door (still no answer) to notice that he had attempted to call Bishop (you remember me talking about him don’t you?) to bring a crane over from our construction business. When I finally did stop knocking (no one ever answered) Mr. C. Cow was in the middle of trying to explain to Bishop that he needed them to pick up giant candy canes off the ground to be shipped back home.

I quickly grabbed the phone, informed Bishop that we WERE NOT taking home random ground candy, and ONCE again explained to Mr. C. Cow that you cannot eat/take/lick/transport candy canes that you find.

Long postcard story short (too late) a few lessons were learned today.

  1. That factory door I was knocking on wasn’t owned by or run by anyone related to the North Pole.
  2. That holiday sign pointing us in different directions…was not made by elves.
  3. We do not attempt to consume giant candy canes we find on the ground.

I hope that, when we make it home for a few days for the holidays that I don’t find a giant candy cane in my yard.

I mentioned both Bishop and our construction business in THIS past postcard. If you’re ever in SL and want to randomly look at our construction equipment you can check it out here. (I recently moved stuff around so if they link puts you on the grass you can go right up to the warehouse. You might end up next to my house. It’s ok!)
