Fingers? Who needs Fingers? They are way overrated!
Big Cowpoke is in Cub Scouts. Every year, there is a big Derby race. The cub scouts make their own derby cars to see who's car is the fastest or coolest looking. It's rather exciting. Big Cowpoke is really excited. It's his first year and he wants to make a tank. Mr. Cowboy tried to tell him that the tank will not win, but I don't think that should matter. Maybe he will win the most original. Well, Little Cowpoke also wants to make a race car. He wants the car that Speed Racer drives. So, I designed it and then Mr. Cowboy started to cut it out, and then he took the saw and cut his finger. Oh, dear. I was giving the kids a bath, and there was blood everywhere. He was refusing to go to the Emergency Room. We called a friend who is a Nurse Practitioner, and she said to go to the ER and get some stitches. If you looked at the cut, you could see white. I just knew that wasn't good. So, after debating over going to the ER or not (for hours), Mr. Cowboy finally went. Stubborn Cowboys. But really, who needs their pointer finger anyway? They are way overrated!What am I to do with him? He went to the cub scout meeting last night and a fellow Dad offered to help him finish cutting out Little Cowpoke's car. No more saws for Mr. Cowboy. Big Cowpoke's tank is almost finished. We need to sand it and put some wheels on, so I guess we are far from finished. Oh, dear. He is really excited about it. That boy loves anything camo. You are never fully dressed with out camo shirt, camo pants, and camo flip flops. Yep, that is how it is done. So, the tank will be decked out in camouflage. And Little Cowpoke's Mache Five will be white with the letter "M" on the fenders. Oh, he is so excited. I need to get some pictures of the cars and all the cutting action. Mr. Cowboy still has his finger bandaged, and he will get the stitches taken out in 12 days. That gets to be my job, I am excited!!! These last few days have been super crazy. I hope to get out to the barn today and get Ozzie saddled and work him for a little big. I have some training things I want to try with him. And here are some pictures that Mr. Cowboy took with my new camera. I hate that he just picks it up and takes better pictures than me! But I still love him. So, not fair. I hope the sun comes out today so I can play with my horses. Oh, and one more thing. If you want to try and win some toffee, go check out this fantastic food blog, Gourmet Mom on the Go.
