A very happy June to you from your peony-laden, rose-scented June bugs, Hank & Cap! The Boys invite you to breathe deeply with them as they contemplate the auspicious month ahead in their garden: Ahhh. _____________________ Now is everything. Whatever you do in this very … Continue reading
Hank couldn’t resist the opportunity to Viking himself and Cap today, wishing he could make it to the British Museum’s epic exhibition. Poor Cap isn’t terribly tech savvy, so he has to live with the results of Hank’s marauding tendencies: You can go Viking … Continue reading
The Cake Rex Saga continues: Sorry. We’re experiencing some technical difficulties at this time. Our iPhone has been mistaken for cake. ________________________ The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off. Gloria Steinem
Hank has been a bit unhinged since his last birthday. “Unhinged” cannot possibly be a good omen for his dotage. You see, Hank has become obsessed, and we’re talking more than the usual Hank obsessed, more than the run-of-the-mill Hank unhinging du jour….this is more like … Continue reading

For Hank, summer days run something like this: wake, yell, eat, burp, pee, poo, scratch, sniff, yell, sniff, yell, swim, swim, shake, sniff, roll, roll, sniff, swim, swim, shake, yell, roll, roll, scratch, pee, yell, eat, yell, pee, yell, yell, sleep. Which brings … Continue reading
Hank goes to a dinner party and meets new friends, including the escargot: __________________________________ Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself. It is not far. It is within reach. Perhaps … Continue reading
