Tree Couture

I caught Mr. C. Cow standing outside of the camper today holding a bunch of tree branches. One in his mouth, a few strapped to his middle, and a couple on his horns held together by twisty ties.

“What in the name of nature are you doing?” I, politely, inquired.

“I’m being one with the trees!” was Mr. C.’s answer.

How is wearing multiple types of tree branches make someone “one with the trees”? Pine accented with oak makes more of a wood pile than a “one with trees” fashion statement. Mixing tree types is like wearing socks with sandals. Then again, I like to wear a beehive as an outfit centerpiece. What the heck do I know?

These Are Trees.

I wish Marslean was camping with us. She could witness Mr. C. Cow with his tree branch couture. Marslean is also the only one of us that owns an entire tree guide. I only have a half a guide as Mr. C. chewed on mine. She’s also the only one that could probably look at his wood pile of an outfit and, somehow, make it look fabulous.

While Mr. C. Cow was outside in his branch outfit singing about “Trees And Love”, I got on this amazing invention called “The Internet” and looked up a few tree facts. I thought that, since I didn’t have a branch ensemble, I could, at least, learn more than the words “bark” and “leaf”.

These Are Also Trees….

Did you know that the indentation between the lobes of a leaf are called a “sinus”? 

I’m now staring out the window at Mr. C. Cow’s outfit trying to find ear lobes on a leaf and figure out if they get sinus infections. Nature is hard.

I think it’s time to get Mr. C. back into the camper, minus the tree garb, and back on the road. His little nature stunt has made me realize we might need to brush up on our timber knowledge.

Yes….I do know that trees do not have ear lobes OR sinus infections.

Graceful Bovine Magic

Every Friday there is a Rainbow Tinies party that Mr. C. Cow and I try to attend when we’re in the area. Mr. C. Cow gets REALLY excited when he knows we get to go because he is an excellent dancer. I have always assumed that he went to some sort of school to learn how to hoof it but it’s all natural talent. Mr. C. can dance around like a graceful bovine ballet dancer compared to my swaying back and forth in rhythm (not really) to the music. Maybe I need the lessons.

This week Mr. C. Cow and I are hoping that we are in the area so we can party down with everyone. He’s extra specially excited as he has been working on a new party outfit to wear. It has, from what I have seen so far, some sort of spandex sparkly one piece, a pair of GIANT sunglasses, and a fez. Where does he find these various articles of clothing while we are traveling? Grocery store? Carry out? Trading post?  I am assuming that he is doing more than buying bread and toilet paper when he goes to the grocery store. Can’t really say too much about his shopping habits as I do have a colossal closet dedicated to the hair arts.

I Wonder Who Lives In The Itty-Bitty Cabin…

If we do get a chance to go this week we might have to show up a little early. It takes a while to park the camper and Mr. C. Cow, with all of his clothing, might take longer than usual to get dressed. All I do is make sure my hair is symmetrical and immense. Mr. C. takes his planning and dressing to new levels with the moo-ing over what matches platform shoes or “do these heart-shaped sunglasses make my ears look big?”.

We hope that we’ll see you there one of these Fridays!
