A Cheesy Safari

Our resident redhead insisted the Hu-Dad follow her as she wandered through the wild grasses, so please join us for a Cheesy safari.

Bring that camera, Hu-Dad, as I venture into the wilderness.

Despite being 14-years-old, Miss Cheoah joins us every morning for a two-mile walk. She opts out of the afternoon three miles the boys do, but still takes the time to play in the yard for a while before grabbing an extra nap.

A girl needs her alone time.

Some time in the yard might sound like a picnic, but Cheesewhiz wants to make sure you understand it is a jungle out there. A wild, overgrown jungle. Here is photographic proof.

    Seeing Miss Cheoah enjoying herself always puts a smile on my face. She is such a beauty! My kitty likes to play in the monkey grass too.

    I hope I’m doing as well as Miss Cheoh at 84! 2 mile walks are impressive at any age! As my 2 Redheads would say, aroooooo, and woo! Glad Hu Dad could be there to get you through that Jungle, cause it’s wild out there!????

    Miss Cheesy-you are doing so well with your walks and I am impressed. Having Hu-Dad along while you go through the WILD GRASSES is awesome and don’t blame you for wanting him to escort you!!! This story made me smile!
