Royal Family Confusion

We seem to have created some royal family confusion, but we don’t plan on appearing on Oprah to resolve our disputes.

royal family confusion

Based on some of our reader comments, we believe we’ve created a royal family confusion with our nicknames. In the foreground is His Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey, also known as a royal pain in the … you know. He doesn’t like being cuddled, brushed, touched, or otherwise treated like a dog unless, of course, he demands such attention right now. In the background is Landon Boom Boom, not a prince but more of a Court Jester. He bounces and springs from place to place, has the attention span of a gnat, and will cuddle at the drop of a hat. Typhoon has instructed the Hu-Dad to keep these matters clear going forward. And, yes, Roscoe P. to the right and Frankie is hidden while finishing important business.

    I love different names also. When I had 3 there was The Queen, The Little Prince and the Court Jester. Now only one and she is the Little Princess. Funny how they are all considered royalty!!

    Boom Boom could almost be called Tigger when he bounces around!! But no sense adding more confusion!! 🐾🐾

    thank you! I admit to often being confused by the different titles for the Royal Little Prince. I sometimes got/get him confused
    with Typhoon Phooey and/or Landon and/or Boom Boom? LOL! but no problems! I don’t feel ‘quite’ so bad since there must have
    been others too who found it a bit confusing. NO PROB Hu Dad!!!
    I love them All and All of their names are Great!
    now beloved old Frankie and cuddly Roscoe my poor old mind can keep straight! so all is not lost. LOL.

    Hu-Dad-I always know when you talk about the Little Prince OR Typhoon Phooey you mention the THE ROYAL BOY!! I love the names you give them all too. WE as followers of the Herd don’t need Oprah! So Boom on Landon-and be happy Frankie and Roscoe P!!
