Chasing Waterfalls

Mr. C. Cow and I took a hike the other day to find a waterfall. We heard from a local bunny rabbit that it was a beautiful site to take pictures. I had to talk Mr. C. out of bringing a barrel with him on our waterfall hike. He thought it was the type that you had to go over in a barrel. I told him that, for safety reasons, no one was taking any barrels over the side of any waterfalls. Not even with safety goggles on. Not even with a helmet on. Not even if the helmet has flames on it. No one is going over a waterfall in a barrel. Slightly disappointed he put his gear away for another day (Fat chance Mr. C. Cow!) and off we went in search of this photogenic waterfall.

After hour three of searching we started to get agitated. Where the heck was this waterfall? Was there actually one around here? Was the bunny just pulling our leg? We stopped and asked a bunch of goats if they knew where it was.

Neither one knew of any waterfalls in the area. Mr. C. Cow was determined to find this mysterious place and I just wanted to go back to the camper. The goats were kind enough to give us directions to a local owl that might know more about the area then they did. Thanking them we went up a very steep set of stairs, a mile through some dense forest brush, over a stream, and found Mr. Owl.

Mr. Owl also knew of no waterfalls in the area. Had we taken a wrong turn someplace? Was this waterfall a real thing? Did a bunny get it wrong or did he just flat out lie to us? Were we ever going to just go back to the camper?  I sat down to think about what to do next while Mr. C. Cow got into a heated discussion with Mr. Owl. Something about how many licks and lollipops. I wasn’t really paying that much attention.

When the conversation turned into a shouting match over confections I said we were packing it in, thanked Mr. Owl for his help, and ushered Mr. C. Cow out of there. A couple of hours (and wrong turns) later we were back at the camper. If I ever see that bunny rabbit again we are going to have words. Many words.

We stopped the other day to ask for directions to the nearest diner. I had this urge to eat pecan pancakes and Mr. C. Cow wanted a cup of joe. We saw a few animals kinda standing around talking so we stopped the camper and asked a lovely painted elephant for directions.

This turned out to be the wrong individual to ask for directions. The elephant only seemed to talk in elephant jokes. We asked where the nearest diner was and they would answer with:

What’s grey and moves at 100 miles per hour? A Jet Propelled Elephant!

We’d try again by asking if they knew where the best cup of coffee could be found. Our Answer:

What do you get when you cross an elephant with a dairy cow? Peanut Butter!

Mr. C. Cow really appreciated the peanut butter joke. He can’t help but be amused when someone involves cows in humor. I was starting to get a tad bit annoyed at the lack of diner answers. I did notice that, for some strange reason, there was a REALLY ANGRY looking goat standing on top of the elephant. Maybe they also didn’t appreciate all of the jokes.

Finally we settled on asking a nice water buffalo where the closest diner was. A right. A left. Just past the billboard asking for road safety.

I wonder why the elephant was only answering in elephant related jokes. Why was there a goat standing on it’s booty? Was the water buffalo with the elephant? I’m too hungry to answer these questions!
