Where Is The Class Clown?

A photo of our Saturday afternoon walk shows only four of the five of us. Where is our resident class clown and what is he doing?

Roscoe following Landon, Cheoah and Frankie. Where is Typhoon?

Don’t even think we could go on a walk without the Little Prince. He had decided that walking backwards wasn’t enough and was walking right beside the Hu-Dad’s legs. No telling what his game was, but he sure looks happy.

Just playing games.
Just playing games.

Yes, His Haughtiness had decided to make the walk just a little bit more exciting by trying to trip the Hu-Dad. We suggested that might not be the best strategy, but he didn’t listen.

The class clown never listens.

    I’m glad Typhoon was on the walk! Don’t scare us like that Phooey! I’m sure Hu Dad loved you walking on top of his feet. Just wait until you do trip him…you’ll be rewarded by getting to stay home from the next walk…wait…you may want to re think your strategy!

      The sound you hear is Hu-Dad laughing hysterically.

    He does like to mix it up. Such a funny boy!

    Typhoon always keeping Hu-Dad on his toes!!

    I have a good one for you Typhoon. If you get enough snow get Hu-dad to go snowshoeing and walk on his snowshoes!! Wait until you see how he laughs with that one. Sure made my Mom laugh, but my Dad was not so happy. Crazy Ruby.

    Once again Typhoon Phooey-you have brought a smile to my early morning with your silly antics! Of course trying to trip Hu-Dad wouldn’t be such a GREAT idea silly boy! Gotta love The Thundering Herd!

A Whiff of Wildlife

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.
