#88 Fluffy Highland Cows

B:That cow needs a haircut span class="dropcap">That Highland cow seems very friendly. (Perhaps a little sad since someone is laughing at him.) That boy should be more polite or he could end up hurting that poor Highland cow's feelings.

I had high hopes of seeing a Highland cow during my stay in Scotland, but conversing with some natives has informed me that most of them are on the West coast. I'm on the East side. I think why I like this animal so much is that it is a cow, yet still fascinating. It's kinda fun to become excited about such a boring animal.

#87 Father's Day

B:My dad does a better job of wearing this papa suit. Happy Father's Day everyone! (well ... mainly just to the fathers) At times it can seem like an impossible job to fill your dad's shoes or in this case, his papa suit. They have hard jobs. I know mine did anyways, because I'm his son. That is why we must all take the time to thank our respective (and respectful) fathers, and we should really do it everyday. While you are being appreciative, you should probably give your mama some recognition too.

#86 Picking Best Friends

B:When I got you as a puppy ... out of all the other puppies -- I picked you to be my friend. But you had no choice, and yet I'm still your best friend. D:Perhaps neither of us had a choice Best friends are very hard to find. (Some unfortunate souls never find a best friend.) However, it is very easy to tell who is your best friend. I'm not sure how to suggest finding your best friend. As the dog suggests there might be a bit of fate involved in the process. Yet if you are in need of someone I suggest going here to find a best friend. Best friends are always there to make you smile.

Here are some other's thoughts on best friends (they're mainly the thoughts I like though)

If you live to be 100, I want to live to be 100 minus one day, so I never have to live without you.
    --Winnie the Pooh

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
    --anonymous

Never give up on what you believe to be a true friendship. If it was, it is, and it will always be.

#85 Chaps and Lassies

B:Scottish people sure do enjoy discussing cowboy fashion and dog actors. D:those chaps and lassies are different Scotland. There are two different signs that they are in Scotland. First, there is the actual sign saying Scotland. Second, there is the ever-constant drizzle. It rains in Scotland quite often.

I've had some difficulty understanding certain Scottish people during my stay here. Some people have strong accents, but most people I can understand what they are saying. It is just that it can be difficult to know what they are saying. They use different words and phrases in their conversations.

"Chaps" and "Lassies" are all American words deriving their origin from cowboys and everyone's favorite T.V. dog respectively. However, in Scotland they have a different meaning.
