Boom Boom, The Heavy Thinker

Though we suspect many of our readers might be surprised, we have photographic evidence that Boom Boom is quite the heavy thinker.

Boom Boom, The Heavy Thinker

When asked, Landon was reluctant to explain exactly what he was thinking, but we would note that everyone else in The Herd was taking advantage of some actual sunshine by napping. Hu-Dad was the exception to the napping party, but he was working hard in his study. Based just on that, our guess is that Landon is thinking that his brothers and sisters are all lazy and he wants to play.

Or I am thinking that I shouldn't get my head stuck.

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: Awoooooo, can’t a guy even take time out to ponder what life is all about without everybody making it into such a big deal? Ever heard the song, “With My Eyes Wide Open, I’m Dreaming”?

    I am truly surprised to see him in one spot for that long thinking so hard. I thought he did his thinking while running or flying through the air. He is probably thinking that if he stares at them hard enough, and thinks about playing, they will wake up and come play with him. Good luck handsome boy!

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.
