Distractions Interfere with Relaxing

Labor Day Weekend at Chez Herd and all of us are just relaxing on the porch. Well, until distractions interfere with our Holiday.

Perfect for relaxing.

Frankie says a holiday weekend is perfect for relaxing.


Well, it would be relaxing except for those drive-by muggings.


That tickles. Stop it.

hard to relax

See how hard it is to just relax?

    There will always be those who want to relax and those who insist on agitating.

    Typhoon really has ahold of Cheoah! His expression in the last photo just cracks me up. He better be careful–sisters can dole out the worst revenge! And poor Frankie–just the innocent!
