Guess Who Pulled An Office Solo

We had a beautiful, sunny day yesterday and every member of The Herd wanted outside – except for one who opted for an office solo day.

Me? An office solo day with me? Isn't Hu-Dad lucky?

After breakfast, Landon and Frankie had their usual, brief wrestling match in the study, and then they decided to nap outside in the sunshine for the rest of the day. Cheoah positioned herself in the basement of the picnic table. And Kiska and Qannik enjoyed the peace of the senior porch. That left just Herd member inside to entertain the Hu-Dad (and minimize that busyness stuff he tries to do).

Go ahead. Work. Resist this face.

Go ahead. Work. Resist this face.

Ah, yes, just when you think he can’t be a bigger scoundrel, His Haughtiness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey pulls out his ultimate weapon – the “See I Can Be Cute” faces. And, yes, he is a master.

How much work did Hu-Dad fail to get done?

    I have to say His Haughtiness Typhoon Phooey is a MASTER of the ADORABLE and SWEET faces. I would not be able to resist him either-lol! Sorry Hu-Dad!
