Comical Large Feather Duster

Mr. C. Cow decided, since it was Monday, that Bishop needed a bit of help around the shop. This is surprising as Mr. C. usually likes to begin the day with a banana smoothie, a long bath, and a nap. Not only was I surprised but so was Bishop as he was planning a normal workday. When it comes to working in the shop with Mr. C. Cow the words “normal workday” are never uttered.

The first order of business was to dust the shop. Mr. C. was not asked to dust but he felt it needed it. I’ve never seen anyone attempt to dust equipment with a comically large feather duster. After an hour of vigorous cleaning, we were no better off in the dust department then when we started. Mr. C. gave up on his attempt and wandered around for an hour looking for another area he would be useful at.

Dusting this was not successful.

After a quick sandwich and a few laps around the shop, Mr. C. Cow came back ready to test all of the emergency buttons. Bishop did something I’ve never seen a polar bear in a hard hat do in all of history. There was a slow-mo “noooooooooo” as he body blocked the emergency stop button. I wish I would have had a camera as I feel we could have made an industrial safety video just from that footage. Emergency button testing was a no go.

Do not touch unless it is a REAL emergency!

For the next two hours, Mr. C. Cow sat next to my desk “moo sighing” while I was trying to do paperwork. Bishop, knowing that Mr. C. Cow just wanted to help, gave him the perfect job of sorting hardware into their proper bins.

Separate those things Mr. C. Cow!

Happy to be of use (and tired of “moo-sighing”), Mr. C. got right to work. If you’ve ever needed anyone to organize hardware in your life then you need to hire him. He was made for separating things. (Once saw him separate lettuce from a BLT without removing the bread…different story…different day….).

Important Lesson Of The Day:

Not everyone was made to do everything. I’m too short to dunk a basketball. Bishop was not made to fit into tiny spaces. Mr. C. Cow was not cut out to be left alone around heavy machinery. The good thing is that we were all made to do something great. I’m good at retrieving things from underneath a camper seat. Bishop is great at drinking coffee while working on machinery. Mr. C. Cow is wonderful at organizing. We all have something we are spectacular at. Sometimes it just takes us a while to find out what it is.

Oat Burger

Mr. C. Cow and I love sending you postcards twice a week. It was an absolute treat and surprise when we were sent a postcard! We have a phenomenal friend named Marslean who was more than willing to become roommates with us back home. Since we’re not at home a lot it’s nice to have someone taking care of the place. She is also really knowledgeable about machinery and tools so Marslean is a big help for Bishop over at the construction company. Probably much better help than us two knuckle heads.

Here is the postcard she sent us!

Friends!

I went to a water park today and I had an interesting experience! When I arrived the first thing I saw was this colossal water slide that I just could not wait to try out.

I can see our house from here!

While I was walking around I passed a nice reindeer couple and asked them about the massive water slide. No answer! They seemed too preoccupied with chewing their food to talk. Then that got me thinking, I’m hungry too! When I sat down to eat an oat burger (That Mr.C.Cow happily made for me) I stared at the waterslide once more. It took a little bit of yelling “You can do it!” at myself to get the nerve up to slide down it.

Well…your lunch looks pretty tasty.

While I was walking up the stairs I caught a glimpse of a lighthouse.

Reminds me of good times!

It reminded me about the time when Tipsy,  Mr. C. Cow, and I took a trip to the beach. Mr.C and I fished while Tipsy took pictures for a postcard. Mr. C. Cow SWEARS that the fish he caught was bigger then mine. He is such a fibber! Someone needs to buy him a ruler or fish measurer or something!

When I reached the top, I took an inner tube that was a lovely shade of green, and sat down at the beginning of the slide.

3….2……1….WOOOOO!!!

Turning and twisting I zipped down the slide, water splashing everywhere! At the end of the slide, I stood up, and  being a little dizzy I decide to go sit by the lighthouse and drink a bit of tea. What a good way to end the day.

OMG! We got an awesome postcard and the urge to visit a water slide sometime soon. Mr. C. Cow is already planning a shopping trip for inner tubes. He’s determined that, if he is faced with a tremendous waterslide, he will only slide down on his own equipment. I think I’ll just invite Marslean to drink tea at the bottom. It seems safer!

Thank you so much to Marslean for the postcard! She is actually our real roommate and does help Bishop with the equipment company as well as take care of the house. Bishop has told us that she is WAY BETTER at driving a forklift than we are. I beg to differ as Mr. C. Cow makes a far superior “beep beep” back up noise then anyone I know.

Safety Vests Are Important

Bishop gave us a call while we were at a rest stop the other day. It was great to hear his voice because, although Mr. C. Cow is the GREATEST travel buddy in the world, I miss Bishop. I know he misses us too but we are a bit of a pain in the butt while home.

A good example of us being pains is the fact that he sent me photos of what was going on at the equipment company and I wasn’t very helpful. It’s not my fault I don’t know the difference between a hydraulic lift and something or other…I forget…

You can make that one thing on it go up and down!

Bishop sent the first photo of some sort of thing you can drive. I think it looks really pretty with its bright yellow color and the fact that it has tires. I could visualize him shaking his head as he explained to me that it was our newest piece of company equipment. I gave him the thumbs up (which I realized he couldn’t see) and told him it was a great piece of machinery.  I’m sure him and Mr. GEHL would get along just fine. At that point he asked to talk to Mr. C. Cow for a few minutes.

After listening to one side of a twenty-minute conversation about safety vests it was my turn to discuss the second photo Bishop sent me.

It’s Miller Time!

I thought it was a beer fridge. A fancy beer fridge that had a bunch of knobs and buttons on it because, the more an object has, the more expensive it is.

No?

Since the words “Trailblazer” was written on it then it must lead people by wagon through the Oregon trail.

No?  

Bishop informed me that I wasn’t even close and this was a welder. It gives you welts? Why would an equipment company want to give people welts? Doesn’t sound like good business practice to me!

Equipment aside we talked about how much we missed each other. I might confuse a welder with a fancy beer fridge but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a luv connection going on. I make him laugh more than I drive him nuts. Mr. C. Cow loves him because he has someone to discuss hard hats with. We make a pretty good team!

Maybe one day he’ll let me drive that new piece of machinery…if Mr. GEHL is ok with it.
