My husband got a large bag of hot peppers from one of his co-workers earlier this week. I’m planning to chop a bunch and feed them to the squirrel who’s been wrecking havoc in my garden the whole summer. I hope this will teach him a lesson but so far the little sucker has been resistant to stink spray and squirrel bait (=poison), so I’m not sure if these hot peppers will keep him away this time…
My husband offered his local friends on Facebook to have some of our peppers and a friend of ours kindly accepted. They met for the transaction this morning and my husband came back home with a present from him… It was a cow puzzle! My youngest and I built this 100-piece puzzle with a little frustration (mostly his, not mine) but we completed it pretty quickly. Here’s our new cow puzzle in its entirety:

Thanks, Jim! You’re quite a funny guy!

First thing after breakfast this morning, my youngest decided to pull the lacing game off the toy shelf. We haven’t played with it for a few months so it was nice to see him show interest in it, especially since it helps developing his hand-eye coordination and his dexterity skills. Soon he asked me to take the lace off… the cow, of course!

We then decided to pay a visit to a local indoor playground to get a little exercise (well, mostly for him, as I actually spent most of the time working on my computer).
You’ll never guess what the people next to me were drinking. A can of Red Bull energy drink! (sorry, no photo, I didn’t want to look like a weirdo) And the lady said she drinks it “by the truck load“. Well, that would explain why I’ve been seeing more and more Red Bull trucks every time I’m out and about.
So you won’t be surprised if I tell you I saw another Red Bull truck on the road after we left the playground:

And obviously, the Red Bull truck driver thought I didn’t have a good look of the Red Bull logo so he changed lanes and ended up right in front of me. Argh, right in my face! Come on, Red Bull, enough already! Do you expect me to rename this blog “Every day I see Red Bull”?

Just a couple of weeks ago, Red Bull made its first appearance on this daily cow sighting blog, nine months into 2011. Just a couple of days later, I saw more Red Bull logos at my local grocery store. Since then, I think the Red Bull people have been having fun with me. I swear I see the Red Bull delivery truck every other day when I’m on the road. I also see the Red Bull logos in every other store I visit, when I never noticed them until now. It seems there’s increasing demand for Red Bull energy drinks and the display cases have multiplied at the stores, while truck deliveries have increased.
Actually, it’s not just the deliveries that have increased but the size of the Red Bull trucks as well. This is the truck I saw today on the freeway. It must be twice as big as the Red Bull delivery trucks I’ve seen so far:

Wow, that’s a lot of bull!
Are you seeing more Red Bull too, or are the Red Bull people on to playing some trick on me?

I saw today’s cows in a video showcased on my Yahoo home page and went to find the YouTube video link for you, because I’m sure that after you see it, you’ll want to show your friends. It’s that good.
Meet the cows vs. the remote control car:

Somehow, whoever shot this video decided to test the cattle’s reaction to having a remote control car on their turf. Well, were they in for a surprise and you’ll be too! Enjoy the show and let me know what you think.
