Sophisticated Frankie Suave On Sentry Duty

What could be better on a Sunday than some gratuitous sophisticated Frankie Suave photographs as he performs his sentry duty from the deck.

A little worried look as a thunderstorm rolls in (with Cheoah in the background).

Frankie Suave. Big brother. Protector. Example setter. And suave about all things except loud noises (at the first hint of thunder, he wants his Hu-Daddy quick). And so sometimes we just need to share some photographs of our non-mischief making but handsome dude.

Sophisticated Frankie Suave.

Of course, he is also Hu-Dad’s faithful book reading companion. Every night, when Hu-Dad lies down to read a good book, Frankie curls up beside him for appropriate snuggling. Now that’s sophisticated.

Enough sentry duty. Time for Hu-Dad to read a book.

    Leena does, and Chloe did the same when I’d make it to sitting like a normal person in bed to read or browse/play games on an ipad. Now that it is summer, Leena isn’t as interested as this new house is so frikin hot, so I don’t fault her (so hot that even I’ve moved to the basement with my office).

    Even still, when it is zzz time. The Leena takes my right side, the cat takes the right side pillow. Leena may or may not stay awhile on the bed. She may or may not get back on the bed at times, but she’s never far…and the cat….the cat almost never gets down all night 😀

    As for a storm….a storm turns Leena into frikin velcro.

    I love how they mellow with age. I hate that they’re older.

    I love your sensitive side Frankie Suave ❤️

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
