Unfair Sneakiness By The Hu-Dad

Every day, our Hu-Dad expects us to cooperate for some photography for this blog. Sometimes, we are quite happy to pose and make his job easy. But, other days, Hu-Dad resorts to a great deal of sneakiness to capture what he needs.

No, I don't want to.

No, I don’t want to.

Yesterday, for example, Hu-Dad was following Typhoon around the house for some photographs, but the Little Prince was being his usual grumpy self. He didn’t want the camera pointed in his direction and even insisted on going outside to get away from the attention. Pouting outside, Typhoon Phooey did not notice Hu-Dad sneak up to the window and snap the above picture. Three seconds later, the reaction was this:

Harrumph. Now I a really not happy.

Harrumph. Now I am really not happy.

    Oh, the Paparazzi never leave celebrities alone! I guess it’s the price you pay for being famous….

    OH Typhoon, that is the price of being a beloved Prince. Your adoring fans want to see your photos and you are so lucky because your Hu-Dad is your personal photographer. You do not have to be surrounded by hoards of photographers.

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

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.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
