We haven’t been taking security seriously lately, but Frankie has begun walking the fence perimeter with some Suave Security.
For years, our great Chief of Security Miss Kiska patrolled our perimeter of the Maggie Valley house. She monitored every creature who neared our fence and warned them away no matter their size or intent. Bears, coyote, bobcat, rabbits, and other invaders received a stern lecture.
In our Murrells Inlet house, intruding squirrels (those rascally tree rats!) raised our the biggest alarms. None of us thought of yelling at the sea birds since they all seemed to have wingspans bigger than we are (Kiska would’ve yelled at them). Fortunately, no alligator ever wandered into the yard.
Now we are back in the mountains. Bears wander by. Deer visit. Squirrels and rabbits bounce everywhere. With our fence complete, we need to secure our border. Frankie takes a calmer approach to the duties than Miss Kiska, but, as our senior member, he performs a careful inspection each morning. We’ll call it the Frankie Suave Security Services.
