A Typhoon Phooey Blockade

Typhoon has enjoyed being king of the porch in Frankie Suave’s absence, but how does his blockade hold when Frankie returns?

I am Typhoon. Hear me roar!

I am Typhoon. Hear me roar!

For the last week, the Little Prince has strutted around the yard like a king. His favorite game has been to claim the porch as his own personal fiefdom. No one is really paying any attention to his efforts, but at least he is in charge in his own mind.

As Frankie has recovered, his yard time has increased, albeit under Hu-Dad’s close supervision. And what does Frankie think of Typhoon’s gatekeeper role?

Back off, Big Brother, my porch!

Back off, Big Brother, my porch!

I will stand my ground - oomph!

I will stand my ground – oomph!

Hey, wait, no fair.

Hey, wait, no fair.

Pretty much the same reaction everyone else has had.

How about a Throwback Thursday video? How about some Siberian Husky talk? Er, woos? How about a lot of woos? How about Landon Shares A Word Or Two Or Three Or . . .

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
