Countdown to 40 - Day 9

This post has little to do with me turning 40. It is more about the other old man that I live with, Quincy the 12-year-old fat basset. He has been neglected on this blog since Baby Shife arrived on the scene more than a year ago so I decided to share a new photo of Captain Furry Pants. There are so many things wrong with this picture that I am not sure where to start. Do I begin with him just being on the furniture or the fact that he has his furvaceous body spread out over so many pillows or that he needs to be on the pillows because the leather couch is not just comfy enough for him?
The picture was taken two nights ago at about 11:55, and Mrs. Shife and I still have not figured out what he was doing.
Baby Shife was having a rough night. He was crying and screaming so Quincarelli might have just wanted to get away from the noise so he went to the living room to get some sleep or he was trying to blend into the couch with the white pillows so we would not find him or he was covering his ears with the pillows to drown out the noise or he was just being a crazy basset.
Feel free to add your own interpretation.
Have a good Friday. Talk to you tomorrow.

Don't think I've been here before. Came over from Trav's place. Don't let the Big 4-0 bug you too much. Really, you're still just a whippersnapper. With one of the best looking babies I've ever seen. I actually liked the shot of his frowning frustration. Very intelligent and sensitive. Thanks for letting me come over.

Fat Bassett is reenacting the "sketching Kate Winslet scene" from Titanic.

Hi Texanne - A friend of Travis is always a friend of mine and more than welcome here. I stopped by your blog but was unable to comment because I don't have the log-in credentials. Thank you for the kind words and I hope you see this sometime. You are more than welcome to stop by anytime.

Red - I think you nailed it. I will ask the fat basset if this is indeed correct. He is a big fan of Leo's so you never know.
