Typhoon And His Merry Sentries

His Haughtiness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey took charge of guard duty and organized his merry sentries into an impressive force.

Mr. Typhoon decided to organize the security patrol yesterday evening, though he seemed to anticipate an aerial assault from a pair of egrets hanging out on the tree. He’s a little freaked at their wing spans, so keeps a very close eye on them and insists on support from his little brothers.

Unfortunately for our Little Prince, his fellow guards don’t take the job quite so seriously and Roscoe was distracted by a passing dragonfly.

Hey, look at that, guys.
