You Move, You Lose

We have a very simple rule here at Chez Herd – You Move, You Lose. Hu-Dad, for some odd reason, does not think the rule should apply to him, but we are quite clear that it does.

When we are parked in a campground in the S-RV (Siberian Recreational Vehicle), Hu-Dad prefers the front passenger seat because of the pull out laptop desk. It is a great place for him to catch up on emails or write our blog (which we dictate to him, of course).

My seat, Hu-Dad. You move, you lose.

My seat, Hu-Dad. You move, you lose.

So imagine Hu-Dad’s surprise when he discovers his seat has been co-opted by a certain munchkin. And why does Little Wonder like this seat?

The view from here is awesome.

    Love the shot of Typhoon through the window! I would have the biggest grin if I were out walking and saw that.

    Well, played Ty. Bet you had your eye on Hu-dad just willing him to move! We play that game with our bed at night. Someone becomes limp and deaf and paralyzed.

    Maybe Ty wants to take over the blog. 😉

    LOVE the shot of the tail hanging off the seat, just chillin in hu’dad’s seat, he didn’t want it any more – he left it, so I took it…..
    and a beautiful tail it is!!

    Mom sez: Hmmm, I wonder if the sound of a food dish being rattled somewhere around the far end of the RV would change Ty’s mind?

    Sorry Hu-dad, he looks quite adamant. The seat is his.
