Caption This: A Momentarily Serious Roscoe

We know this will not last long, but Roscoe P. is being momentarily serious as Hu-Dad is trying to have a conversation with him about this weekend.

No joking? No clowning? Why are we momentarily serious?

Hu-Dad sat in his chair on the back patio as we played and dug holes conducted our serious Siberian business of preventing a rabbit, chipmunk, or squirrel invasion. Hu-Dad read aloud our weekend weather forecast that included much cooler temperatures and the first real hint of the winter to come. Roscoe seemed quite interested in the upcoming days and marched over to the Hu-Dad for details. But, Dear Readers, it’s Caption This Friday, so what did Roscoe actually say? Let’s hear your creative suggestions.
