Kissing A Prince

According to so many fairy tales, kissing a frog might turn it into a prince. But kissing a prince only turns him grumpy.

Yesterday morning, His Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey was dutifully taking his daily medications when the unthinkable happened—Hu-Dad leaned forward and kissed him on the head. Uninvited touching of the Little Prince is a violation of royal protocol and must be met with a stern response. In this case, that involved much sighing, snorting, and stamping of feely-feet followed by the royal huff. Isn’t he cute when he’s grumpy?

    This made me laugh big time today. Just finished giving Queen Ruby the Untouchable her morning eye medication. Good thing we love them.

    Poor Typhoon. Touching of his Royal Highness while he is forced to take pills. His day can only get better from there. Thanks for sharing. I am thrilled to get stories on the weekend.

Halloween Costumes

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.
