Boom Hears A Who

We’re enjoying a quiet evening on the deck when Boom Boom hears a who…or a what…or something worth investigating.

Our decks here have a special feature Hu-Dad is quite proud of…locking gates. Yes, believe it or not, we not only have to ask to go in and out but we also have to ask to go up and down the steps. Can you believe the ways he keeps “improving” Sibe Quentin?

I should go down there and investigate

Something about creatures that crawl, scrabble, and slither their way out of the salt marsh and into our yard, so Hu-Dad checks first and let’s us know whether it’s worth the visit. In this case, he denied Boom’s inspection request with the explanation it wasn’t that interesting anyway.

    Love the expressive face Boom! Those piercing eyes…You’re right to be suspicious of we humans when we say ” nothing to see here”. I can assure you, there’s always something to see! Keep watching, you’ll eventually see what’s not there! Have a watchful weekend!????

    The look on Boom-Boom’s face in the last shot is priceless. Have a great and safe weekend.
