Tanner Tuesday Tan Torkelson Style

So those Steelers did not make it to those playoffs so FOOTBALL IS OVER at our house. Well, Mom will still watch but she won't be SO excitered.

I got a little worried that Mom and Joe might FREAK OUT if I wasn't all upset too...



After I had them TOTALLY convinced I went on to my original plan for the day...

I had this idea for a Mobile Toy Box...

What do you think?!?!

Then I tipped it over so Mom would have to pick alll the toys up. That way, she won't be thinking about those STEELERS. Pretty nicerest of me EH?!

wow, do you have a TON of toys!!!

we suggest putting some fancy schmancy wheels on the bottom for easy portability.

at our grandma's house, our toys are kept in a wicker basket too! sketcher just barks at it until you pull out a toy for him. :-)

Tanner! I can't see the last two pics for some reason. I think it's this super slow internet connection down here in Vermont. If Joey is in those pictures, then I'm mad as hell!

Our mom said to tell you she thinks your strength is quite impressive! That toy basket is so full it must weigh a ton!

Very thoughtful of you to get your mom's mind off the Steelers? The Broncos didn't do too hot either. (Not that anyone here cares) I'm ready for baseball too but my humans like to snowboard until May!

Your new year's resolution for working out with weights is sure paying off, Tanner! We were wondering just how far you were going to drag that basket!

Love ya lots,

For once I think I understand you a bit. My Momma usually puts my favorite toy at the bottom of the basket too. I usually just take out the others and put them as far away as possible, but I think your technique is faster.

I like the mobile toy box idea. It has potential. I think dumping it on a regular basis is not a good idea. Muzzers and Moms seem to have a problem with that.

We kind of worked on a similar plan when we moved in here. Wood floors made it quite easy. Then Muzzer put a bunch of old books in the bottom. too heavy. Good luck.

The best toy is always at the bottom of the box, isn't it?

Salut, Tanner! ("Salut" means "Hi" in French!) I just learned about football from Channy. Our uncle and cousin explained it to her while she was in New York for Christmas, and she finds it rather exciting now! We're both going to try to follow the BC Lions here in British Columbia, Canada. I can't wait until she finishes compiling my orange outift; true Lions colours all the way!

Oh, and I'm so jealous of your toy box! All my toys just fit in a shoe box. :( Channy will just have to buy me more!

Snuggly Bum Sniggles!

Hi, Tanner...

Wow...That was genius - using your rope toy as a handle...

Now your Mom can pull the basket around with her while she picks up all the toys...

You are smart & helpful...
