Pointing To Buried Treasure

Roscoe had a very exciting day Friday when he unearthed loot, so now he’s pointing to buried treasure.

Pointing to buried treasure

During yard time on Friday, Hu-Dad confiscated a filthy ball from Roscoe and wondered where it came from. A few minutes later, a second ball appeared in Roscoe’s mouth. A few more minutes and a third appeared. The people we bought the house from raised their five kids in it, so we’re always finding something interesting, but a baseball, tennis ball, and golf ball in one afternoon is a new record. Roscoe is so impressed with himself, he’s now pointing to buried treasure.

    So as soon as Roscoe points to the buried treasure does Hu-Dad retrieve or do you let Roscoe dig it up and bring it to you before it gets confiscated??🤣🤣

      Roscoe is young and fast. Hu-Dad is old and slow. Roscoe always unburies his treasure before Hu-Dad arrives on scene.

      Typhoon points out Roscoe has one giant fault, one Typhoon does not share. Roscoe listens. When Hu-Dad demands the purloined item be turned over, Roscoe obediently complies. Typhoon doesn’t understand such behavior at all.

    I’ll bet he’s having a lot of fun finding them. Five kids should equal quite a few balls. Roscoe always looks so happy.

    Go Roscoe! Sparky found a toy football buried in my apartment complex’s garden – who knows where it came from but it is now Sparky’s (after a good scrubbing).

    Good job, Roscoe! It’s important for your brothers to know where to find more of those balls that were clearly left for all of you to enjoy.
