How To Get Out Of The Hood(ie)

Ha roo, pups and cool cats.  It's me - Zim.  Thanks for letting me be a Rap Star for a few days.  It was really pretty fun, but in reality, I'm still just a guy stuck wearing the Party Hat.  Sure, calling it a "Hoodie" helps, but how to ditch it for a while?  (I mean, other than the "stop trying to open your incision back up" thing.  Ha roo - like that's going to happen!)  If you look sad enough ...

...and you look at your mom with this look on your face when she asks how you're doing...

"Sigh.  I'm OK, Mom."

...well, you just might be able to toss the Hoodie aside for a while and head here:

To the Hudson Trail!!! We love that place!!!

"Now THIS is what I'm talking about!  SQUIRREL CHECK!"

Oh, YEAH!  Nothing can put a smile back on my face like a great walk!  Dave agrees!

"Yeah, Zimmie.  This comes a little more natural-like than being a Rap Star*!"

I hope all of you get to get out of the Hood(ie)  (if you're in one), and go out and do some exploring this weekend! 

Play bows,

  1. Yo Zim!!! Guess being stuck wearing the party hat is better than the lamp shade. Oh...wait a minute. It does kindof look like a lamp shade. ANYWAY... we've enjoyed your transformation into a Rap star. We alway knew you be cool like dat!!!

  2. Woo what a great looking trail. We love it when the leaves start to fall and make the trails look like wonderland.

    Glad you got the nasty old lamp shade off.

    See ya soon

  4. Geeeze, what a contraption to have to wear.. I suppose it has its purpose, but ugh. I really really hope you can get rid of it sooner than soon. You are still handsome with or with out it. and Don't you forget it.

  5. Oh Zim, your sad look worked on our mommy! We're all glad you got to go out on the trail this Sadieday!

  8. Awwww Zimmie I know how you must be feeling wearing that thing. I had to have one when I had my ladygardenectomy. I hope everything heals up quickly and you can get rid of the cone of doom for good :)xx
