Must Watch TV

Landon’s napping time on the couch was interrupted by some must watch TV and you can see how enthralled he became with the show.

Keep channel surfing, Hu-Dad.
Keep channel surfing, Hu-Dad.

Landon didn’t seem too impressed with the TV choices as we clicked through the channels, but when we stumbled across one of the Bourne movies with Matt Damon, he found the car chase scenes a lot of fun.

Now this is more interesting TV.
Now this is more interesting TV.

As the cars skidded through traffic, horns blared, and sirens wailed, Landon couldn’t take his eyes off of the screen. He found it almost—almost—as exciting as watching the squirrels scampering among the trees.

Squirrels would be better, but this is good.

    Almost, almost as good as squirrels! THank you for cracking me up when I read this. Landon’s expressions are priceless!

    I have to say Landon’s expressions are SO wonderful. You caught them just right Hu-Dad!!! NOT as good as squirrels BUT really great.

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: WoW, if Landon is that enthralled with car racing, I wonder what he’d be like watching horse racing! Ebby is not the least bit interested in what’s happening on the TV screen, no matter what it is. We’ve tried to “tweak” her interest in various shows with animals in them, and she just looks at us like, “C’mon Mom & Dad, you can’t fool me, it isn’t for real”!

    Our first Sibe Misha would watch Lassie with me when I was pregnant. Nice time together after work each day, long ago. And Misha was really watching, would go move around on the ads, while I rested on the sofa.

    Landon should be a movie critic.

    Pretty cute! He’s doing zoomies in his head. It’s so sweet of you to channel surf for him. 😀
