Facing a Typhoon Head On

After many days of rain, yesterday was at least somewhat sunny – perfect for a day of yard photography – except Hu-Dad kept facing a Typhoon head on.

What are you up to, Hu-Dad?

What are you up to, Hu-Dad?

We commonly see Hu-Dad with his camera trying to capture us doing something interesting, so we mostly don’t pay much attention to him. But Typhoon loves getting his picture taken, so he kept charging the Hu-Dad yesterday to see what he is doing.

Coming right at you, Hu-Dad.

Coming right at you, Hu-Dad.

Notice that the rest of us were lounging on the deck and very uninterested in such photo opportunities, so we just let Typhoon charge over and over.

Bet I can knock you off your crouch, Hu-Dad.

Bet I can knock you off your crouch, Hu-Dad.

Besides, we all know that activity like this is draining the energy of the endless-energy-dog that Typhoon is, so we say – Keep it up, Hu-Dad.

Bet you can't catch this turn, Hu-Dad.

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
