Resist This

Roscoe may have pulled off the ultimate “resist this” face, so go ahead, Dear Reader, and attempt to tell him no.

resist this

Quitting time for the Hu-Dad’s busyness happens to coincide with walk time for us. As you can imagine, we have a daily negotiation of exactly what time that should occur. When Hu-Dad suggested he needed 15 more minutes, Roscoe decided to engage the ultimate “resist this” face. So, Dear Reader, what do you think happened?

    Resistance is futile Hu-Dad!!!

    OMG! I could not resist that face. I bet you didn’t either.

    Who could ever say no to that face? I know I would do anything he wanted.

    Hu-Dad-I KNOW what happened! WHO could resist THAT face??? You quit your busyness and went for that walk-good job of begging Roscoe boy!

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
