House of Hank Rulz!

We’re not a rules bunch here at the House of Hank; we’re not a particularly law and order crowd. In fact, we rate ridiculously far over to the “EXCESSIVELY OUTGOING! EMPATHETIC!

Miksang

Well, Hank’ll be gosh darned. The heck you say! He’s apparently been sort of using an artistic technique all these years. Go figure. Being a dog and whatnot, he tends to see things from a heads-on perspective, a looking-up-and-down perspective, a what-is-this potential … Continue reading

The Tides of March

Well, no surprise here. It’s raining in Seattle. Or rather, it’s still raining in Seattle. Months of it now, can’t seem to stop. Lightning flashes punctuate Hank’s thoughts and the intermittent rumble of thunder keeps everything vaguely unsettled. Folks seem … Continue reading
