Hut one… hut two… HIKE… HIKE!!

Chloe ain’t no howler back girl!

• • • Happy Holiday for those of you in the USA, and happy day or night to those elsewhere!  I’m in a major blueberry ecstasy coma at this very moment and words seem so…. elusive right now.  So I’ll just say do your thang!  Give this photo a title, caption, or talking bubbles and we will read them and laugh and marvel at the varied minds that take part in this little Monday ritual.
Prize will be… a print of your choice!
