Too Hot: A Pictorial

OMG It's Too Damn Hot
Searching for green grass that is not there.

Best just to stay indoors.

This looks like a cool corner.

Sitting under the porch.  Mom, spray me with the water hose!

Retreat under a cool bush.

You woke me better have carrots.

Trying to stay cool deep in the cave. Mom has not cleaned up.  Notice the UPS brown paper?

Too hot to sleep inside, too hot to sleep outside.  So I am sleeping half-in, half-out

Tent city got an upgrade this year.  We're color coordinated. 

Crappy pool. 

Why is there never any water?
Sleeping in a pile of leaves......

....dreaming that I am a water turtle.

    Frankie you are too cute! Your mommy is a very lucky lady!!!

  3. The pic of the big lug sleeping in the leafs is a beautiful shot. Great moment to catch Leann..i wonder what he's snoozin' about? haha! 2 guesses.

    looks like he loves the old school naked swimming hole too!!

    oh one last comment..the tent scene..
    dont let this confuse you..
    this is not Occupy Frankieville.
    its just Leann and Frankie doing their yearly swamp cooler yard sale.
    (you just cant see all the stuff)

  4. oh ya, forgot to mention..
    ive heard of home wreckers before, but this is a first time ive seen the pool wrecker. LoL

  5. Frankie is so awesome!!! I bet he enjoyed the rain today!

    I can't wait for his next post. I just signed up to get his posts emailed to me. Loves them!

    I love those pics of Frankie in the heat. He is so beautiful, just magnificent. I hope my two, Frekka and Sully grow up to be strong like Frankie someday. They aren't in the best of shape from years of terrible care and conditions. Thanks, Leann (and Frankie!) :)
