Landon, of course, adores his big brother. He spent much of yesterday afternoon trying to get Frankie to give him some attention – and might just have gotten more than he expected.

Way Back Wednesday

Little brothers have always learned valuable lessons from their older siblings, as this week’s Way Back Wednesday shows. In Typhoon’s case, while Frankie mentored him in many things, his ultimate teacher was none other than Queen Natasha the Evil. She taught him many useful – if slightly annoying skills – as shown in Respect Your Elders.

Uh, she told me to always take the Fifth Amendment. And always respect your elders.

Whatever you say, Queen. (Click the image for this week’s Way Back Wednesday post)
