Taking The High Ground

We took advantage of a cooler evening and all spent some time in the backyard, though Frankie still prefers taking the high ground.

Look at those crazy kids - taking the high ground

We’re getting a couple days break from our very hot weather, so some play time in the backyard broke out. While the youngsters raced, tagged, and wrestled, Frankie made clear his choice for taking the high ground well away from the chaos. Besides, that’s the closest position to the air conditioning and no Sibe refuses that option in the summer.

    I agree Frankie Suave-being near the AC is very smart. Let those youngsters run and play and you rest on the cool stone!!
