Caption This: Caught in the Act

Typhoon was almost caught in the act one of his infamous upside down napping poses, but Hu-Dad caught this amusing surprised look instead.

A rare surprised look from the Prince

We’ve shared photos before of His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey’s somewhat unique napping style in the yard. For example, this one or this one when Roscoe thought he would make fun. Hu-Dad almost captured another one, but Typhoon was more awake than expected and heard him coming. What you see is the second after Typhoon bounced to his feet with a surprised look on his face. Since this is Friday, it’s Caption This time. So what did Typhoon say when he was almost caught in the act by Hu-Dad.

    Sleeping in the yard on my back?! I would never do that. How could you think such a thing?

    “I was not sleeping, only scratching my back.”

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.
