Salt Marsh Suave

No one handles sophisticated quite as well as Mr. Frankie and that hasn’t changed with out move, so just call him Salt Marsh Suave.

Mr. Frankie is always calm and cool (well, except when we have thunder, but that doesn’t count). A move from the mountains to the coast hasn’t fazed him and he is still Mr. Sophisticated.

And like all big brothers, he doesn’t put up with gruff from his little brothers. When he wants his Hu-Dad time, he gets it and no one disputes. And when he wants his bird watching time, well…

Just wait, Hu-Dad, I have birds to watch.

    I agree with all that Frankie IS Mr Suave-for sure. It seems the move didn’t faze him one little bit!
