Conflicting Schedules

We gave the Hu-Dad one day off from transcribing our blogs for us and then he claims our conflicting schedules caused this problem.

The best we can do - conflicting schedules
The best we can do

One day off. Just one. We write our own blog posts, of course, but insist the Hu-Dad handle secretarial skills by typing in our words (his fingers being better adapted for a keyboard than our paws). We let him take a single day break with Thanksgiving and he gets soft on us. Last night, just as he was shutting down, he realized he hadn’t done his daily task. He pointed the camera at us and said smile for the camera. That’s us smiling. Or at least half of us. Kind of smiling. And waiting on him to post this so we can go to bed. Humans are so difficult to train. Last day off he’ll ever get.

    Uh-oh Hu-Dad- a day off and this is what happens-lol. Of course the Herd doesn’t quite understand that while they are RESTING there so nicely YOU have to do the typing!!
