Neighborhood Watch

We’re not sure what his attention—rabbit? squirrel?—but the Little Prince has assumed the role of neighborhood watch.

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey values his naps. No one should ever wake him or he will be grumpy. Of course, he’s grumpy most of the time, so that’s hard to tell, but we digress. In this case, His Curmudgeonliness sat up and stared out the study window at the front yard. What caught his attention? A rabbit? A squirrel? Another neighborhood dog on a walk? We don’t know, but we give him points for attentiveness.
