Where’s Choppy? Not Very Scenic Edition

2 Dec

I’m sorry if I said I would make this week’s easier. This one is…not nice. Not nice at all. I think the Elf is a bad influence.

***

The weekly instructions and warning:

Choppy is somewhere in the photo below. We will post an answer on Monday so you can see if you are correct in your guess as to her location. In the meantime, if you don’t want to know where she is, do not go look at the comments. They are full of answers. And poor guesses. But mostly answers. The people who comment here are excellent at this game.

Day 2 – Elf on the Shelf – The Army Arrives

2 Dec

Something tells me it will take a lot more than this to keep our Elf at bay. I would hate to see what happens to the poor guys who tied up the Elf if he is to get loose…

Happy National Mutt Day, from these two mutts (or pets of unknown provenance) to all the others in the world!

Day 216 – Dog Walk Challenge

2 Dec

Choppy and I walked about twenty minutes later than normal on Day 216- it meant a lot more traffic for our walk, but also that I could get a picture of her because the sun was starting to peek out.

In related news, the college-aged version of myself is horrified that I somehow think walking at 6:20 AM is acceptable, and that walking at 6:00 AM is somehow better than that horrible idea.

Based on the blurriness of this picture, I think my idea that it was appropriately light out for picture taking has been proved wrong.

 

Day 1 – Elf on the Shelf – It Begins

1 Dec

Our Elf on the Shelf has returned for another year of shenanigans. Ours is a real jerk. Perhaps it is because I have never named him. Or it could be that he’s drunk.

Howlidays: Cookie Cutter Week

1 Dec

It’s December, which means it is time for cookies – and to make Christmas cookies, you need cookie cutters!

(Also, as of about five minutes ago, I have Snapchat. I have no idea what I am doing, but I am sure I will use it wisely (in other words, to further the humiliation of Choppy and Schooner, as I clearly have that part of Snapchat figured out, as the picture below shows). I think I am @TravelsWithChop there, just like on Twitter. Though, again, I have no idea.)

Day 215 – Dog Walk Challenge

1 Dec

Happy December!

It’s going to be a busy day here on the blog: we have the daily Howlidays post, and it seems our Elf on the Shelf has returned for another year of shenanigans.

Here’s a video from Choppy’s day yesterday. I would have expected to see either Paul or me in this one, but we aren’t there. You do, however, get to see some up close and personal views of Choppy!
