A Royal Morning

His Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey has a regimented process to his royal morning routine.

A royal morning begins with a royal sunrise

Some of you might follow the Hu-Dad’s social media accounts where he shared the above photo already. He and Typhoon were enjoying their view of a gorgeous sunrise Sunday morning over the salt marsh. Not a bad start to a day.

Royal demands for the birds to come closer

After the sun has climbed above the horizon, the Little Prince turned his attention to a song bird perched on our chimney. Typhoon was very disappointed the bird did not drop down for a visit. How will royalty stay amused in such conditions?

    Ah…the royals! What lives they have! I was looking at some early stories with the Prince and can see how much thinner he was. Is he having problems keeping the weight on anymore?
    Just a commoner but a fan!

      We are thrilled to report that Typhoon, thanks to daily medications he will take for the rest of his life and a restricted diet, consistently maintains a healthy weight.

    Beautiful photos. The Royal Prince is as handsome and regal as ever, until wrestling time brings out the fun side.

    I’m glad the royal Typhoon had a wrestling match to take his mind off the song bird!!!

We Had A Little Snow

January 25, 2016 |

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
