Five O’Clock Somewhere

A certain Little Prince was caught sneaking up on the Hu-Dad’s refreshments on the deck last night. His defense? It’s five o’clock somewhere.

Not up to anything. Why do you ask?

Hu-Dad enjoys spending some quiet time on the deck each evening with an appropriate refreshment. Well, as quiet as a house full of Siberian Huskies ever can be. As His Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey proves, Hu-Dad can never relax too much.

After trying the “it’s five o’clock somewhere” defense, Typhoon switched to much more reliable tactic—blaming someone else.

    Beside the fact that I can’t get Son o f a Sailor out of my head now, I’m on his Haughtiness’s side. He’s sniffing the wine…being the expert. Don’t be surprised if you catch him swirling the glass!
