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?

      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!!!
