Quiet Time On The Deck

Some of us might struggle with Hu-Dad’s request to spend some quiet time on the deck enjoying the peaceful evening of the marsh.

Hu-Dad settled into his chair on the deck with a glass of wine in his hand. He wanted to savor the sunset over the salt marsh as the birds nested for the evening. Unfortunately for the Hu-Dad, not everyone shared the peaceful goal.

After several minutes of wooing, barking, scrabbling of paws, and other ruckus, Hu-Dad suggested the rabble rousers calm things down just a hair. The looks of innocence were classic.
