That’s Not A Hole

When Hu-Dad asked who had been digging holes in the backyard, Landon took one look and declared, “That’s not a hole.”

Nope, that's not a hole.
Nope, that’s not a hole.

When a certain bouncy dog appeared at the door with muddy paws and a matching nose, Hu-Dad asked what he’d been doing. Boom Boom replied, “Nothing.” Shockingly, Hu-Dad did not accept that answer and walked through the yard and found freshly tilled soil. He asked our furry suspect about the excavation. Landon inspected it quite closely as you can see above and declared, “That’s not a hole.” Hu-Dad shook his head and asked if Landon had anything else to say for himself. The Boomster grinned and replied…

But it's going to be a hole!
But it’s going to be a hole!

      Hu-Dad says his best hope is not to fall into one of our holes and get trapped. Something about we aren’t exactly the Lassie type to rescue Timmy from the well, particularly since we probably dug the well and pushed Timmy. We think he exaggerates a lot.
