Finding Brother Solo Time

As the eldest boy in the family, Frankie Suave understands how hard it is finding brother solo time with pesky little brothers tagging along.

Ah, the coast is clear. Finally some big brother solo time.
Ah, the coast is clear. Finally some big brother solo time.

Poor Frankie Suave is the big brother to all of the boys—Typhoon, Landon and Roscoe—and struggles to find some quiet time for himself. So when he spots an opportunity to wander out in the yard all alone, he takes it. What could go wrong?

Where you going, Big Bro? Can I come, too?

Sorry, Frankie, but that alone time didn’t last very long. One of your shadows is right on your heels.

I can't believe you almost lost me. Isn't that terrible?

    Mom sez: Even though I don’t comment every day, I DO read about all the SiberAntics every day! I have them stored in a folder for the past 8 years or so, back to the days of “Rusty the Rooster”, who was my “favorite” in his day. My next big “favorite” from the time he first joined the Herd, has been Frankie. Now, Landon is catching up. I hope Frankie teaches him well. Special (((HUGZ))) to you, Frankie.

    I have long followed this blog. and enjoyed every post whether commenting or not!
    but I just read the ‘Look Inside’ on Amazon of your latest book. . . “The Lottery”
    WOW. YOU can WRITE! it made me want to know how their lives turn out. and I see that you have received 5 stars! I see why. great characterization. and you are superb in creating the entire feeling of the setting just in what I’ve read! I FELT the cold and the WIN! it made me want to follow them through in their lives! I’m making this too long! I’m sorry! but just had to say. thank you! I will enjoy your book!
    I’m in the middle of reading about Jane Austen’s life on my Kindle. I may have to interrupt it to find out how your book ends! or maybe when the Georgian period just gets to be ‘too much!’ LOL.
    and to say I adore your Sibes goes without words. well… one fits. priceless!
    your study takes on a whole new meaning now. and Hu-Dad’s work. I will be ordering more of your talented writing. xoxo

      Now if you give Hu-Dad the big head with all of that praise, we will have to take him down a notch or two with our antics. Oh, wait, we would do that anyway.

      P.S. – Hu-Dad said enjoy the book. The next book, Lost and Found, will be out this summer. We are supervising to make sure he gets it done on time.

    I guess you didn’t get your alone time Frankie Suave? YOU are the BIG BRO and as such-your little brothers adore you. Maybe that will help you feel a little better.
