Siberian Pinwheel

A rare, magical constellation formed in the Hu-Dad’s study yesterday morning and we have photographic proof – the Siberian Pinwheel.

The Siberian Pinwheel

Hu-Dad attempted to move his desk chair and discovered he had been hemmed in by a Siberian configuration. He turned and realized that he was seeing a near perfect formation.

Wrong way, Boom Boom.

Wrong way, Boom Boom.

Yes, we know, Landon should have been facing into the center, but perhaps this was the artistic impression of the Siberian Flow. Or maybe he still had salmon breath from breakfast. Or maybe this is just modern Siberian art.

Always a critic to any artistic endeavor.

    We haven’t seen much of the Whiz recently. How is our favorite redhead doing these days? Love those gorgeous parti eyes. Hope she’s snuggled up in front of the fire. Out parti-eyed girls are spending lots of time on their leather sofa with their Wobbies! Time to recharge the old Siberian batteries….light snow is predicted in our area this evening. Loads of love to the Herd!

      She is currently curled up on the couch in front of the fireplace – her favorite winter position.
