Resetting Naughty Nice List

With Christmas 2016 now in our rearview mirror, Typhoon asked the perfect legal loophole question – are we resetting naughty nice list?

Enough of this nice for Santa Claus stuff.

Typhoon worked hard. Really hard. Other than capturing a few rabbits that dared venture intoย his yard, he has been really well behaved. And then Christmas morning happened. With 365 days to go before the naughty and nice list once again was used to judge where you stood with Santa Claus, Typhoon decided to go to work.

Nothing major. Just little mischievous moments, all done with his usual grin. The threat of Santa’s infamous list apparently no longer held sway.

So, Typhoon, aren’t you worried about Christmas 2017?

Yawn. No worries.
Yawn. No worries.

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: And who knows, maybe by the time next year rolls around, Ty will have outgrown his predilection for being #1 on the “Naughty List”. Oh, dear, and THEN, what will the hu-Dad do for a new “fall guy — er pup”?

    I think he’s proud of himself making the naughty list. Every family needs a resident imp to keep them entertained.

A Whiff of Wildlife

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
