Boring Busyness

Hu-Dad is focused on the launch of his next novel, but Frankie Suave considers it boring busyness and prime napping time.

Frankie’s answer to Hu-Dad’s boring busyness

With a book launch just over a week away, Hu-Dad is slaving away on his computer. Hu-Dad looked under his desk and saw Frankie Suave had taken advantage of the situation and made himself quite comfortable. Don’t worry, though, because the sun has reappeared and we convinced the Hu-Dad to go outside for a nice, long walk yesterday afternoon. Even Frankie woke up for that.

    Frankie looks thoroughly enthused. What a sweetie he is!
