We have two winners! My boys went over the entries with fine tooth combs. Okay, really? They gave the slingshots a good once over. Check it out:
Little Guy didn't have a clue how it worked. He figured it out quickly enough. And I read the list of chicken names to him about eight times before he made up his mind (after pointing out that this chicken is a rooster). Chicken/rooster's new name is officially ... Fowler! Chelf, of Chelf Space (catchy name!) made this suggestion and is the proud new owner of her very own Fowler! Email me, please, with your snail mail address? Fleabyte at gmail dot com.
And Oatmeal Head only needed the list of cow names read through twice. He narrowed it down to two in the first read - Milkshake and Cowabunga. Ultimately Cowabunga won. Let's all give Rocky Cat a hand! I thought Milkshake was cute. Sorry Laskigirl. And will you email me your snail mail, Rocky Cat? Your very own Cowabunga will soon be on its way!
Little Guy just asked why he couldn't name the chicken Bob and the cow Steve. Because no one suggested those names, is why. And because cows are GIRLS. I don't know too many girls named Steve. Besides, Fowler and Cowabunga are perfectly good names for flying barnyard animals.
Thanks to everyone who played!
Until I write again ...
