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.
