Has He Proclaimed Landon’s Tree?

The Tree of Life sits in the middle of Sibe Quentin, but Boom Boom seems to have proclaimed it is Landon’s Tree from now on.

Why are you watching me?

Why are you watching me?

Hu-Dad realized that Landon was not in the study with the boys, his usual spot during the day. A quick search discovered he wasn’t hanging out on the porch with Cheoah either. Nope, he was sprawled in the middle of the yard at the base of the Tree of Life. No real reason was given for his decision to hang out by himself.

We realize that lots of you deal with the dreaded Tree Rats (aka, squirrels), but we don’t have such creatures in our yard. We do have some quite pesky birds that like to gripe at us from their perch. Maybe Boom and a bird were having a discussion.

Stop squawking at me!

    That would be a nice portrait or Painting…especially if you could get the whole herd to sit under the tree of life!!!

    Landon-I so wonder what was squawking at you from the tree? You do look relaxed in one of the pictures at the base of The Tree Of Life though! The “why are you watching me?” one is SO funny!!! I just love to see what each day brings with the pictures Hu-Dad!!!
