A Concrete Problem

Landon wanted a little quiet time in the yard but discovered that Hu-Dad had allowed invaders in our yard with a concrete problem.

Whoa! Who invited that big beast?

Landon was a little surprised to discover that our yard was not as quiet as normal. Our driveway has buckled with age and needs to be replaced, so the crew arrived yesterday to dig it up. Not since the Orange Beast Destroyed Our Basement have we seem such a vicious creature.

That creature is stealing our driveway!

Landon knew exactly what to do. He called for his big brother, Frankie, to come back him up. The only problem is Frank is not a fan of loud noises. His reaction says it all.

We’ll defend the yard, won’t we, Frankie?
I’ve got your back, Landon. From here.

    Lulu: “That looks like a ‘Let’s you and him fight’ kind of situation there, Landon!”

    Rusty would show them all how to love the big monster!

    Oh this is TOO funny. Frankie doesn’t like loud noises so Landon will just have to deal with BACKUP-from the back!!

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
