It Happens To All Of Us

Yesterday, we posted about Cheoah’s challenge when her brothers decide it is wrestling time. We wanted to be clear that such “invitations” to wrestle do not just happen for Cheoah – it happens to all of us.

Qannik talking as always.

Qannik talking as always.

Qannik, as seen above, is quite the motor mouth and has much to say about everything that goes on. But when he is talking, he does not always see what is happening around him . . . until it is too late.

Whoa - that's going to hurt. See. It happens to all of us.

Whoa – that’s going to hurt.

That flying gray shadow would be Queen Natasha “inviting” Qannik to a little wrestling match. Let’s just say it was an offer he could not refuse.

Let's rumble.

Let’s rumble.

And the match is on. Loud. Scrambling. And tall.

Air wrestling!

Air wrestling!

    Mom sez: Who’s the “winner” in these Rumbles? Does the Herd back down to Natasha and let her win, in deference to her being “The Queen”, or can she win on her own merits, or do they actually “take her”? It is just SO good to see her this active, after all she’s been through. Sending hugz to the whole Herd, from Ice ‘n Ebby.

    Somehow, I can see the hu-dad imitating the guy at WWE who says, “Let’s get ready to Rumble!”

    2 surgeries in a year and air wrestling. Wow. I guess that could only mean one thing … All Hail the Rumbling Queen.

      Yes, we love seeing our Queen wrestle, prance and play bow as if to say, “Surgeries? What surgeries?”

    Nice Match!
