Work Stoppage

We’ve decided Hu-Dad’s busyness is interfering with our fun, so we’ve designed a work stoppage to block his desk.

Hu-Dad stepped out of his study for a few minutes. When he returned, he planned to roll his chair under his desk and resume his busyness, but we had other ideas. Our strategic placement prevents his access, a perfect approach for our work stoppage. We will issue our demands later… as soon as our afternoon nap is complete.

    I have never had that many dogs blocking my desk BUT I have had 2 so I know the feeling. I bet you didn’t have the nerve to chase the intruders(at least for a while Hu-Dad?)

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
