The Letter

I managed to get a picture of Mr. C. Cow’s outgoing letter to Santa Clause this year. I thought you all would like to see how a cow writes a present convincing letter to a jolly man with gift giving abilities.  My commentary is in bold with ** next to it.

From The Desk Of Mr. C. Cow

Dear Santa,

Seasons greetings! I hope that you are having a wonderful holiday time. I am writing to discuss the “naughty or nice” list. As we all know, the list is a large factor that determines if we get presents or not. I feel that I have been good more than bad this year.

(**I Agree! He did stop using six towels to dry off after a shower. Mr. C. said it was for “maximum dryness”. **)

Examples:

Rinsing dishes instead of licking clean

(**This is a skill mastered in the last few months**)

Remembering to fill camper gas tank so Tipsy doesn’t run out of gas in the middle of nowhere

(**The last time this happened I was in the desert around, oh, fifty miles, from a gas station…with no cellular phone service….**)

Enclosed you will find a few “nice list” references as well as my gift list.

(**He did ask us if he could put us down as a reference.**) 

I hope that you will see I have been good so I get, at least, one gift. I will leave you milk, cookies, and carrots (for your reindeer). This year they will be free of bite marks.

(**Who wants to make bets that the bite marks don’t happen?**)

Your friend, 

Mr. C. Cow

I thought that was a rather thought out letter. Had very valid points. Was done in colorful crayon. Minimal spelling and grammar errors. Nice job Mr. C. Cow!!!

I hope that you all have your “naughty or nice” argument letters ready to go. The holly jolly man can’t wait all day.

Dear Mr. Claus

Mr. C. Cow just finished writing his letter to Santa and I wanted to share it with all of you.

I cut off part of the letter when I took a photo because Mr. C. Cow was SO EXCITED that he kept bumping into me while I was taking a picture. The letter reads:

Dear Mr. Claus,

I hope all is well! This year I would like:

*Two pairs of roller skates. (I have four hoofs)

*Two giant candy canes in it’s own special case. (So it doesn’t get dirty)

*Two milk cans.

*Electric Toothbrush

*Bananaphone 

I have been very good this year. Remember how I use to chew on the door mats? I stopped doing it. (Still trying to not lick door knobs.)

Love, 

Mr. C. Cow

I am proud that he changed his mistake of using “going” into “doing”. It goes to show that the writing lessons I have been giving him are working. I am a little “Oh Mr. C!” over the crossing out of one item and asking for two. I guess he’s been extra good so he feels he needs a little extra. He’s not being greedy (I saw him give a goose half a sandwich last Monday. That was nice of him.) I think he just feels that the best things in life are in pairs. Two milk cans. Two peas in a pod. Two individuals traveling in a camper. He has stopped eating door mats but the whole licking doorknobs thing is just weird.

The tiny pictures he drew on his letter are kinda cute and awesome!

I’m off to mail his letter to the Claus. He asked me if I was going to write one to Santa as well. I might have to because I just want him to bring Mr. C. Cow happiness and two pairs of roller skates.

Mr. C. Cow doesn’t have too bad of handwriting for someone who has to write using a hoof.
