* Why Cows Shouldn't Climb Trees

Tai Shan Attacks a Tree



There's probably a few reasons cows shouldn't climb trees. First being black and white may look nice up in those lofty branches but it is not basic requirement for climbing trees. Before we look at some of the old ASCII art that I dug up showing why cows ought not to climb trees, there are lots of folks to thank who have helped with Gertrude and now Amistad.

This weekend Kelly dropped off a bag of bottles from her workplace: Robinson and Lukenchuk Optometrists. Many thanks to Kelly and her moo-valous co-workers.

Juliane, a new cow supporter, dropped off some things for the Kijiji virtual cow sales and the hockey skates have whizzed out the door as well as some other things. Many thanks Juliane for the donations to the cow.

Nancy, the lover of retro chairs, helped with a chunk of Gertrude as this wonderful stool was picked up by another chair connoisseur.

I am about to post some vintage Swiss model railroad track, cars and more stuff. An old university friend was in town for Christmas and, of course, I had to tell the cow stories. It turns out he needed to pack up some things up from the family home so I now have the joy of trying to find a buyer for the model train works. Many thanks Michael and Jennifer I hope I can mooo-ve this right along to a train enthusiast.

Remember to check out the Kijiji items - you'll never know what treasure or household item that you'll find. A pineapple corer anyone?

And now, some retro Ascii Art



Ah for the days of the Saskatoon Free-Net, dial up over a 2400 baud modem that seemed like the speed of light after a 1200 baud and 300 baud modems before that.
