Topsy-Turvy Dinner Hosting

The Tuxedo Man himself, our cousin Tartok, was quite the topsy-turvy host for Hu-Dad’s visit to Hu-Grandmom’s last night.

Welcome to the Hu-Grandmom's house!

Welcome to the Hu-Grandmom’s house!

Tartok was an up close and personal host while dinner was being set, but once he realized the humans planned to hog it all for themselves, he ventured off to his corner of the deck. This spot gives a terrific panoramic view of Tokkie’s kingdom and captures the cool mountain air perfectly.

The perfect spot for hosting.

Don’t worry though, because Tartok did help clean up after dinner. The humans carried dishes inside the house. Hu-Dad came back outside to the deck with a dishcloth to wipe the crumbs off the table, and discovered Tokki had already made sure to vacuum up every crumb.

Best host ever.

Best host ever.
