As the senior boy among the Herd, Frankie expects his little brothers to give him the respect he deserves. Typhoon and Roscoe mostly do so, but Landon struggles with the concepts of boundaries.

Boom Boom believes in a boundary-less bouncing. The good thing for him is that his older brother has nearly infinite patience.

Fortunately, Landon does get the message and pays the proper respect …before initiating the inevitable games.

Please, Mr. Suave, can we play now?
