Embracing Delinquency

Some of us try very hard to be good every day, but His Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey believes in embracing delinquency.

Why are you watching me, Hu-Dad?

His Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey has long enjoyed his bad boy image. When caught red-pawed, he shrugs. Why be good when being bad is so much fun?

Just drinking a little water. So what?
Just drinking a little water. So what?

The above image is a classic example. The label just above the Little Curmudgeon’s head identifies the owner of the crate. It doesn’t say Typhoon. It reads Roscoe. After every meal, when the doors are opened, Typhoon leaves his crate—where he has his very own water—and walks into Roscoe’s crate to drink. Why? Because he can.

Typhoon Phooey—Cute, but bad to the bone.

P.S. – In that last photo, Hu-Dad suggested it was time to go inside. Is the reply clear?

    I agree with Tammy J-The prince drinks from Roscoe’s water bowl because he CAN-lol. The last picture speaks for itself-he is saying “What-me come in-NOPE”?

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
