Caption This: Home Alone

Hu-Dad had some busyness that took him into town, so we were left home alone yesterday afternoon. What does Landon have to say about that?

Home Alone

Hu-Dad normally works from the office here in the house, but sometimes he has to leave. Yesterday afternoon, his busyness took him into town for several hours and we were left home alone. Plus, horror of horrors, both our afternoon walk and dinner were late. When Hu-Dad came home, he asked if we had behaved. Landon took the lead in explaining how good we were. So, go ahead, Dear Reader, fill in the blanks for this week’s Caption This. What did Landon, who usually talks too much, say?

    I agree with Jean!! Just add the music from the Baha Men – Who Let the Dogs Out as background! And my imagination is having a field day!! 🤣🤣

    Landon said, “We were so good while you were gone. We just talked among ourselves. Good thing you came home when you did, I hate to say what may have happened. The things we had planned were unthinkable!!”

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
