Running Into A Brother

When you live in a big family, the odds of running into a brother is quite high. In poor Typhoon’s case, we mean that quite literally.

Where is he? He's around here somewhere.
Where is he? He’s around here somewhere.

Alone time is a precious commodity when you live in a large family of siblings. Even when you find you have a moment without anyone around, you know the time is short before the noise grows.

I know he's close.
I know he’s close.

Thus the way it is for Typhoon. Mr. Touch-Me-Not allows only one other close to him, but even he knows that running into your brother can cramp your style.

Oof. Typhoon running into his brother Roscoe. Literally.

    Looks like the classic alpha/omega relationship. Good balance. They are a cute pair.

    Hahaha! So FUNNY!
    As someone who grew up with 6 siblings( including a TWIN!) I can understand Typhoon’s situation;)
    …On the GREAT side of that is ALWAYS having your own “pack”
    to support you in times of need!!
    Miss Rory gets to be “an only child”
    ^••^ (with lots of “aunt’s+uncles!!”

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
