Start Of The Week, Ready Or Not

Boom Boom wants to remind you that this is the start of the week, ready or not (sort of like his imminent arrival).

The approaching Boom Boom
The approaching Boom Boom

Can you hear the thunder of paws? The rumbling approach? The charge of fur? You should, because the Boom Boom is boom booming his way toward us.

You can't stop him
You can’t stop him

And just like an approaching blur of fur, the week has arrived. It’s Monday. Time to start things all over again. Or, since the Hu-Dad works from home, the exact same thing that happens the other six days a week.

The trampling approaches
The trampling approaches

So, ready or not, Boom Boom approaches. And so does the week. But you have to admit that the Boomster is much cuter than whatever is on your calendar.

I'm here. I'm here.
I’m here. I’m here.

P.S. – Click on any of the photos and you can scroll through them to watch the approach.

    Such joy on his face. Thanks for that wonderful start to my day! I hope you didn’t get knocked over. I really enjoyed scrolling those quickly – I could just hear him coming.

    fabulous! I wish you could sell us a little bottle of his energy. 😀
    happy Monday Boom Boom! xo
    (and your new home ‘by the sea’ is just beautiful to behold.)
