A Taxing Day

Hu-Dad tackled that annual ritual he loves so much, so we all knew it was a taxing day and decided to behave… until tomorrow.

Even Landon knows it's a very good time to be quiet - taxing day
Even Landon knows it’s a very good time to be quiet

It’s that time of year. Pollen is in the air and Hu-Dad was already choking, so he decided to tackle his tax return. He grumbles that we don’t qualify as dependents, uses vocabulary that we thought only Typhoon knew, and stacks piles of paper on all parts of his desk. Humans sure waste their time with weird things, don’t they?

    Absolutely beautiful shot of Landon. Who could resist him?

    I agree that dogs should qualify as dependents. Never had one that would pick up toys, vacuum the hair or clean up the mud brought in!! Pollen is worse than taxes..

    I’m glad Hu-Dad that the Herd seems to realize that you are doing some busyness that’s really TAXING(LOL) Good boy Landon. I haven’t even began to think about our taxes. Oh I have the paperwork ready to start but that’s just it-TO START!

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.
