Back In The Captains Chair

I would like to apologize for the lack of postcards to all of my friends these last two months. Life has been pretty rough and things had to take a back seat. Mr. C. Cow says I should call it “Back camper” but now understands because we do have seats in the camper rear.

Yes…he did giggle when I said “rear”…..

Why were we gone? Well…..I got a really bad cold and that took a bit of getting over. During my “sick period”, Mr. C. Cow got a hang nail, err, hoof and almost had to be hospitalized. He didn’t really, almost, end up in the hospital. He just likes to tell the story that way.

What has been going on since we’ve been missing?

*Marslean was helping Bishop do a bit of work around the shop yard and ran into a snake. I should say she saw the snake and ran in the opposite direction. Being a snake it was unable to run so it kinda panic slithered away. No one was injured and they have now become best friends.

Marslean’s Friend “Frankie”. 

*Bishop has been doing a lot of project work for someone he calls “The Dragon”. It sounds mysterious but it’s actually just a dragon who needed to rent some equipment. Not as medieval as it sounds.

*A band of Armadillos attempted to steal the camper while Mr. C. Cow was in the gas station buying gum. Luckily, they were unable to figure out how to put the camper in reverse and were caught instantly. The armadillos were given community service and Mr. C. now takes the vehicle keys into the store when buying gum.

*While I laid on a couch wishing my illness away I attempted to learn to knit. Many tears and attempts later I have still not gotten past the stage where you actually make something. I can’t even get passed the stage where you’re suppose to put the yarn on the needle-ma-jiggy.  I’m thinking I might have the whole thing down if I live to be five hundred.

That’s what’s been going on with all of us from “Postcards At Tipsy”. I hope everyone has been doing great and is excited that we are back in action!

Sssssssssss Poetry

I hurt my back REALLY bad earlier in the week so Mr. C. Cow has been a really great help. Not only has he been doing a lot of the driving while I’m laying flat down all sorts of “graaaarrrr” at the pain he also promised to send everyone the next postcard.

For today’s postcard Mr. C. Cow decided to dip into his poetry notebook and give us a poem. About a snake. In a tree. Near a waterfall. I’m not joking. If I was I would laugh but laughing hurts and hurting sucks. I’ve very proud that Mr. C. has found a way to express himself


Ode To A Snake I Saw Last Week

By Mr. C. Cow


Last week I saw a snake in a tree.

Couldn’t figure out how he had gotten there.

He couldn’t have flown for he has no wings.

Couldn’t have walked because he has no legs.

Did he slither all the way up high in the trees branches?

Did his slitherers get tired climbing all that way?

Why did you go up there Mr. Snake?

To look at the sky or look over the water?

Can you swim if you were to fall?

I worry about you being up there without a safety net.

Please be careful.

The world wouldn’t want to lose you.


I am not exactly sure what Mr. C. Cow was going for when he used the word “slitherers”. I am assuming he made up a word to describe what they use to do that whole slither thing. Doesn’t matter because I think his poetry is getting so much better! Proud of the lil’ bovine!
