Crowded On The Deck

Frankie Suave wanted some quiet sunning time but discovered conditions were quite crowded on the deck…with a certain little brother.

Frankie loves his nap times, particularly if he can find a good sunny spot. Yesterday afternoon on the deck seemed perfect with only one little problem.

Hi, Big Bro. What you up to?

Boom Boom loves his naps too, but not when someone is around who might want to wrestle. Never sure what the big bro might want, so you have to ask, right?

How about some games before we nap?

    Oh Landon, you’re very brave to approach Royalty! Almost looks like you are “bowing” in the last shot. Let’s hope Frankie doesn’t see this and use it for leverage. So, did his Highness resist, or give in?

    I agree Hu-Dad-Did Boom Boom get his way for the games?? Poor Frankie Suave-all he wants is peace and quiet and a sunny place to nap.
