Ghosts Of Trees Past

Mr. C. Cow and I were taking a walk the other day as a fun and safe way to relax. Little did we know that nature had other plans for us.

DUN DUN DUN!!!

Seriously we were in a wrong place at the wrong time situation. It was a pretty windy day and we were in the middle of the woods when…BAM….a HUGE half of a dead tree fell from way up high and landed on the trail in front of us. I would have gotten a good picture of this tree on the path but we ran away before other things started falling from the sky. One minute it’s a half a tree and the next it could be the whole tree. I felt like we were under some sort of nature attack.

Please Don’t Drop Anything On Us Ms. Tree!

When that tree fell many feet down to the ground it freaked out both Mr. C. and myself. I ran in one direction while Mr. C. galloped in another. He hid in a bush and I ran like the sky was falling. After our near death by tree experience we decided to not go on a hike.

What does one do when they are almost squished flat by nature? Play “Frog Hide And Seek” of course!

I See You Tiny Froggy!

I am especially good at playing hide and seek with frogs. Being pretty short I’m closer to the ground and can find them under leaves. Mr. C. Cow has a bit of an issue since he is bigger and has four hoofs. Instead of running around looking he has to tread lightly. Apologizing to a frog because you accidentally gave them a face full of hoof kinda ruins the game.

What have we learned today? We learned to not give a face full of hoof to a frog. They don’t like that. We also learned that you shouldn’t attempt to take a hike on a really windy day. Dead trees might fall from the sky and try to haunt you flat.

Also…we were, honestly, on a hike and a tree almost hit us! How rude!

Duck Hat

Mr. C. Cow and I went for a long hike the other day. It was beautiful out but really windy. Mr. C. had thought it a good idea to wear a hat to protect his head. It was bright yellow with ducks all over it. He was very proud of his hat but it kept “quacking” me up. (Get it…Get it…Mr. C. Cow didn’t get it…) The hat was a good idea but with the wind gusts it kept blowing off. I think we spent most of our time chasing after it. I tried to take a postcard picture of him wearing his hat but it blew off every time I snapped the photo.

Sorry I Couldn’t Get A Picture Of The Hat!

We’re still traveling on our way to help Bishop out with this new business idea. (Mentioned it in our last postcard to you all BUT it’s still too early to tell you about it. Don’t want to spoil the surprise!) With all of the driving to try and get back home to help we needed a break. Stretch our legs (hoofs…fin flipper things…whatever). Take advantage of the sun shining. Chase after a hat fifty gazillion times.

I shouldn’t giggle at Mr. C. Cow’s duck hat. If he likes it he should wear it! Be who you are!  I’m proud of Mr. C. because he does exactly that. Sometimes it’s a fedora and other times its a Santa Hat in the middle of June. We could all learn a lesson from his awesomeness! Maybe I’ll make his day and buy a chicken hat to wear when he wears his duck one.

Friends Of A Feather Stick Together You Know! (He did get that joke!!)

Photo taken somewhere in Virginia. We were extremely lucky and did not get any of the snow the East Coast got this past week. All we’ve had is rain and LOTS of wind. To everyone dealing with the bad weather, freezing conditions, and mounds of snow we hope that you all stay safe!
