Just Try To Work

Frankie Suave is the master of the brown-eyed stare, so we dare you to just try to work with this gaze upon you.

Go ahead β€” Just try to work
Go ahead β€” Just try to work

Frankie Suave suggested to Hu-Dad that ear scratches were more important than whatever busyness was happening on that computer. When Hu-Dad replied he needed a few minutes, Frankie pulled out the big guns β€” the big, brown eyes of guilt. Can you resist? Just try to work.

Bonus Image

When Amazon leaves a package on our front steps, the driver often snaps a photo as proof of delivery. We received this image Friday evening and it cracked us up. Wonder if the driver noticed that he was being watched from inside the house?
