Spots Watch TV

Sometimes the Spots like to watch TV, depending on what is on. They don't like explosions and loud action flicks or much to Boyfriend's disappointment Tennis (Bandit LOVED Tennis), but documentary or quieter programs will bring them out onto the carpet.

Being unborn or a small tot for some Nixon's shenanigans, I was interested in the early years that formed the president, who in general I don't like, but who essentially brought acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to the US.

 Here they are watching the Nixon documentary that was on the PBS last night. A hay cube snack, just in case a nibble is needed is close at paw. Tyler watches out of one eye, Sydney approaches the matter with one ear up.

The Spots ask what happened to Checkers and were particularly interested in Nixon's skill at Poker which he employed while stationed in the Solomon Islands during WWII. He won several thousand dollars which he sent back to California to fund his next political campaign

Who knew that spots are mid-century political junkies?

I wonder what other presidential bios would interest them, and how many would get Rabbit Disapproval.

So funny.
I had not really thought much about Nixon lately.
Glad the buns found him enlightening - or at least entertaining.

It is nice to see them sharing the hay so easily... Taking turns with it, I suppose... :)

I love the picture of the Spots. They look so engrossed in the show! Mario wants a hay cube for when he watches movies, too.

Oh, great! Now ALL the buns will expect hay cubes during their shows.... The buns here like the fruity hay cubes also.

Glenna said...

They get the fruity--berry, really--hay cubes as rare treats, because you're right about the alfalfa.

sounds like the spots are just into more high brow, educational pursuits...

so did you see Frost/Nixon? I saw it on Christmas day with Debbie and her hubby. Good flick. made me want to learn more about a sad time in our history

We're glad the spots are taking such an interest in American history.

Interested in history is admirable. But how are *they* at poker?
