Coming At You

Afternoon turnout was brief for Frankie Suave. Hu-Dad, he said, it’s too hot and I’m coming at you to go back inside.

Coming at you, Hu-Dad
Coming at you, Hu-Dad

As August is coming to a close, we’re having a stretch of fairly warm weather (80’s, which is hot for us). The youngsters might be fine hanging out in the yard for a bit, but senior Frankie Suave is clear about his goal. He’s out. Takes care of business. And then looks at Hu-Dad and says I’m coming at you. Let’s go back inside.

    Frankie-Our boy Bradley and I agree with you. Our weather has been in the 90’s and VERY humid. WE go out-do what’s needed and come right back in. I am SO waiting for that Fall weather!
